Record at the beach
In February, Bruno Motta and Elizabeth Vargas of Martinez took off for sun and sand in Sarasota, Fla. At Siesta Key Beach -- the No. 1 beach in the United States in a 2011 ratings list -- they caught up with the community news in the Pleasant Hill/Martinez Record while enjoying temperatures in the low 80s and a gulf breeze. They described the sand as having a texture like powder, and noted the interesting places and things to do across the state, including in the panhandle, Orlando and Key West.
It doesn't matter if your time away is spent across San Francisco Bay or across the country -- remember to pack the Record to keep up with news of the community, and then show your neighbors where you have been.
