Favorite Eats in St. Pete, FL

Jerry and I love both El Cap for hamburgers (simply the best) and the Crab Shack for crab (the obvious), oysters, fish, and great margaritas. Love those sauteed blue crab claws in garlic butter. yummm.

A Rain Squall on St. Pete Bay

Over Labor Day Weekend, we were in St. Petersburg, FL working on plans for the remodel/addition to our new place there. We stayed at the Renaissance Vinoy overlooking the marina in St. Pete. It was hot and humid with many late afternoon thunderstorms. This one marched across Tampa Bay into St. Pete around 6pm and all but blocked our view of the end of the St. Pete Pier. It was nice to be inside watching the US Tennis on TV.

Birds in South Carolina Refuge - August trip to Florida

Jerry and I drove to Florida in late August. These birds were in a estuary along the I-95 somewhere in South Carolina. Wood storks, great herons, and Great Blue Herons. The day was hot and still.
