My travels took me to St. Petersburg (also known as St. Pete, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Petersburg,_Florida). I was looking for something fun to do in the Tampa Bay area and was pointed there.
St. Pete is located due west of Tampa. I enjoyed traveling the long bridges (to get there from Tampa).
I liked St. Pete. Downtown is a very inviting area, with restaurants, a view of the Bay, and more.
I drove down a pier and grabbed pictures of the city.
The pier – it houses a restaurant…
I stopped by the Museum of Fine Arts (http://www.fine-arts.org/). They were hosting a free TEDx lecture event. (https://www.ted.com/about/programs-initiatives/tedx-program). It was a great time. I have wanted to listen to the speakers in person.
This is the reception area at the museum. Quite pretty.
I drove to the beach at Treasure Island, just over a small bridge from St. Pete. (http://www.stpeteparksrec.org/treasure-island-beach.html)
It was a cold and dreary day, so there were not many people at the beach. I took my shoes off and walked barefoot. It was surprising how different the sand felt from the sand at Panama City Beach. This sand was not as soft and smooth.
