I'm back from my Florida St. Pete/Tampa trip. I got home days a few days before all the fury of tropical storm Debby hit that area. My cousin Kelly and family live in Tampa and on a higher elevation than some areas, so she has been texting me that they have no flooding..
The first two days we were there, though, we spent at the most adorable "Old Florida" style guestrooms in St. Pete's on Tampa Bay. Exactly! That's where all the rain has been for days. I hope our little oasis is safe.
First, I have to share this photo. I have said many times, that I am not a good flyer, but I'm first at the gate to go. This is the seat across the aisle from me on my Delta Connection flight into Atlanta. Nothing like seeing Delta Duct Tape holding the armrest on for reassuance is there?
The units we had were one bedroom/one bath (to the left) with a connecting door (to the right) to the next unit. Cousin Kelly, her daughter Kate and her Mom Sylvia shared one and my sister, Judy and I shared the other. It was perfect.
Those huge buildings on each side of this little bit of paradise are condos.
Condos with no balconies facing the beach. This view shows, from the beach, how massive these things are. Why would you build condos on such expensive land with no balconies? I think the next question is why would you buy one? Do you think they are that much less expensive, due to the lack of a balcony, compared to others with one? You can tell I'm a bit puzzled by that.
The reunion was a great success. We had not been together in at least 25 years and we all got along like no time had passed. It's so nice to have them back in my life again.
