Some Florida Sunshine

The Professor had some meetings to attend in St. Pete, Florida, for a couple of days and of course somebody needed to carry his luggage, so here we are!  I was able to steal him away yesterday afternoon to take me photo hunting.

Although we go to Florida frequently, we had never explored Fort De Soto which consists of 5 interconnected islands.  Its North Beach has been named to America's Top 10 Beaches several times.  And once there, one understands why.  There is an abundance of raw beauty as far as the eye can see!

When we drove down to the East Beach, we were treated to 30-40 kiteboarders having fun in the bay.  I was amazed at the number in the water and how they were skilled enough to avoid each other.  That's the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in the background sitting high above Tampa Bay.  It's a beautiful bridge!

Of course, my day would not be complete until I found some wildlife to shoot, which is never difficult near beaches.

Food is always being hunted 
and hopefully 

 you are the hunter 

and not the hunted! 

I'll enjoy these ocean breezes and seagull calls for another day
before packing up and heading north to chillier temps.

Hope you have an awesome weekend, my friends!
