Florida in February – Tampa, Part Two

February 6 – 20 Our last day in the Tampa area would be a full one starting with the 60-minute drive to the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg.  Located on the downtown waterfront near 5th Avenue Southeast, Bayshore Drive, and Dan Wheldon Way, it houses the largest collection of Dalí’s works outside Europe.

The Holidays 2019, Part Four

December 20 – January 7 We left the condo late in the morning and not sure about what we’d be doing later in the day food wise, made a stop at, yes, Juanitas to get that Carnitas burrito that had been eluding us.  We would split it, providing just the right amount of ballast in […]
