Just South of Siesta Key in Venice, known as the "Shark's tooth capital of the world," rocky  Caspersen beach is known as an excellent location for finding fossilized shark's teeth. During low tide, a ribbon of dark sand is deposited at the water's edge, where collectors and visitors search for the fossilized shark teeth that often wash ashore. With about four miles of beachfront, Caspersen is typically not crowded.  You can walk along the waterline looking down at the black ribbon of dark sand and spot them just sitting there.  If you want to be productive, pick up a Florida snow shovel at a local Walmart, Ace Hardware or bait shop.   Head out a little into the water where the waves break and there is usually a 6-12 inch drop-off with a pile of larger shells and rocks. Just reach down to the edge of the drop-off or even wade out a few feet into the water to scoop up sand and shells. You can use a kitchen strainer, a shovel or just scoop the sand and shells with your hands. Bring it back up to the beach and look through it to find the treasures or Shark's teeth, shells, and possibly a whale jawbone or stingray plate.  Want to know what you found?  The Fossil Guy has a great image for identifying your teeth.

Chip is a software Architecture Manager and Miao is a Realtor with Berkshire Hathaway . We have lived in Sarasota since 1990; we have traveled to Europe, Asia, the Caribbean and much of the United States and consider Sarasota to be one of the best places in the world. We have put a lot of love and effort into this unit and vacation there ourselves, our hope is that you enjoy it as much as we do. Miao and Chip purchased this condo in 2015. When we were looking for condos on Siesta Key, this one had it all! There is nothing like sitting by the heated pool, watching the boat traffic going up and down the bay. The fishing from the dock is fantastic - you can catch a wide variety of what the bay has to offer - Redfish, Snook, Snapper, Flounder, Ladyfish, etc. It has a boat basin for our boat when we stay there and the beach is just across the street. In the village, there are an abundance of good restaurants and shopping. In Sarasota, you can visit the Ringling Museums, Ca' d'Zan, Selby Gardens, take in shows at the Van Wezel, Sarasota Opera House, or one of the local theaters.
