Casey Key: Nokomis Florida

Photography by Gary Wonning

The narrow island of Casey Key is one of Sarasota’s hidden gems, an isolated and exclusive enclave just off the sleepy mainland town of Nokomis.

It’s easy to pass by this hidden gem, relativity unknown to the general public, this gem is truly a paradise on earth.

With white crystal sands and quiet beaches it is truly the playground of the rich and famous. Seldom does one see more than just a few beach goers on this tiny island.

The only public beach is on the south end, the rest can be classified as public, but, there are no parking places, making them almost inaccessible to everyone but residents.

Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.

Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.

Along the way he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.

Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.

What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.

Siesta Key; Sarasota Florida

Siesta Key Beach located on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico in Sarasota Florida is often referred to as the best beach in the United States.

With its crystal quartz white sand and two miles of pristine coastline, it isn’t hard to see why it has earned that distinction. Add to that the fact that Florida receives over three hundred days of sunshine yearly, and the temperature rarely dips below sixty and you have a formula for paradise.

The beach seems to go along forever with puffy white clouds floating aimlessly above. 

Sea oats and other  sea life is frequently seen on the beach and shallow waters of the gulf.

An abandoned pier highlights the northern boundary of the beach, leaving one to wonder what came here before.
