On October 14, 2011, our four daughters and families joined my wife and me at Sea Club 1 for a fabulous weekend-long 80th birthday celebration. Coming from seven states (CO, CT, GA, NC, NH, NY, SC) and numbering 15, we traveled far, but all agreed Sea Club 1 was the ideal place for my birthday party and was well worth the trips. The beach, the Gulf, the accommodations, and the gracious hospitality of our hosts, Chris and Bill, resort managers, provided all the hoped-for ingredients for a relaxing, warm family reunion. The Club's location on Longboat Key gave us opportunities to go other places and do other things, but most of our time, by far, was spent on the beach, in the water, and lounging on the deck from which we watched the dolphins and shore birds cavorting nearby. Days were capped by gorgeous sunsets rivaling any we had all seen on different occasions in Hawaii. One of the highlights of the weekend was the champagne toast at a nearby restaurant for the birthday dinner, courtesy of Chris and Bill. If you are looking for glitzy elegance, you won't find it here, but if you are looking for a comfortable, relaxing, down-home stay, you can't beat Sea Club 1 on Longboat Key!
