Lido Key Beach

Lido Key Beach

This past Sunday, my husband and I ditched the kids and pups to enjoy some alone time at Lido Key Beach. Normally we try and get to the beach at least once a week. We like to switch between many of the area beaches but Lido is my husband’s favorite! We had not enjoyed a full beach day at Lido since May with red tide being in the area. Missing the beach as much as we did and with red tide gone, we couldn’t wait to get there.

For those who may not know what red tide is, according to Mote Marine, “red tide is a harmful algal bloom, that occurs when there is is a higher-than-normal concentration of a microscopic alga (plant-like organism).
