About Greg Nelson
I am a photographer and my wife is a middle school teacher. We enjoy sharing the natural beauty of the Nokomis/Sarasota area with our guests. We purchased the property as our home in 2000. Soon thereafter we purchased another home a mile away which is where we live today. We were attracted to the area because of its pristine beaches and lack of high rises, pay parking, t-shirt shops, etc. We take advantage of the numerous recreational opportunities here including biking, swimming, scuba diving and nature watching.

What a wonderful location. Our two favorite place were Pops and the North Jetty Fish Camp. We had a great time - so close. Great. Clean. Convenient. We will be back.
