St Petersburg

What a great little town! I would come back here in a heart beat. We immediately found right sized parking, snagged us a spot, unhooked the bikes and took off. It was such a bike friendly town, we had no real agenda except to explore and be back at the Dali museum around 5 p.m. to take advantage of the half price entry on Thursdays after five!

We rode and we rode and we rode, we found a huge bookstore, Haslam's, where we just wandered and looked, wandered and looked, and then wandered and looked some more and left without buying a thing; cause you know since we moved into Roada we have very limited space!

We also stopped by Tropicana Field where the Rays play and found a Cardinals thingy. It's always fun to find connections to things you know!

We biked out to Snell Island passing the somewhat famous so I'm told Vinoy Hotel. We also saw a photo shoot going on which we may or ay not of been responsible for double takes since we rode right through as they were clicking away and a guy yells,  "bike" ...oops!

This town must be active as all get out as they had all kinds of clubs...lawn bowling, tennis, shuffleboard, chess, dancing. MiRV wanted to stop and play but they weren't out so on we went around Mirror Lake.

After a snack and then late lunch in Roada, we loaded the bikes back up and walked on over to the Dali. I guess lots of other people had the same idea we did on the half price entry savings night. However, the line moved pretty quickly but the museum was crowded, we made our way to the exhibits and put on our headphones for the self guided audio tour. Yeah, this guy was goofy but I did like some of his work. There was also a special showing of some Picasso works. I am not a huge Picasso fan but I guess he was one of Dali's mentors and seeing the similarities of their work is surprising. It also made MiRV think, well geez, he could have copied someone else too, just didn't realize it would have made him famous to do so. LOL

We closed the place down so to speak, then made our way back to Roada and headed to our driveway in Tampa! Another great day out and about.
