Florida – St. Petersburg

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.

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.
