I’ve done a bit more ‘getting out’ this week, including going to the Florida Botanical Gardens and Heritage Village in Largo, and then shooting with a friend in Ybor City and Tampa. I’m still not on a schedule that I like, but I’m working on it . . .
The Florida Botanical Gardens was a step up from Sunken Gardens in St. Petersburg, and it was free, as was the Heritage Village. The layout was more interesting at the Botanical Gardens, and there was more to see (minus the birds). It was just a nicer place to walk around, and also has the bonus of being right next to Heritage Village.
Some of my pics from the Botanical Gardens:
|I loved this view!|
|Weeping Bottlebrush — delicate|
|Can’t believe these grow here wild. . . Bird of Paradise|
And more from the Heritage Village:
|Room with a View|
|Dunno — just liked it. . .|
Next was St. Patrick’s Day, and I got together with friends for that — fabulous meal, Irish Coffee at Cricketers in Dunedin, then back for an equally fabulous dessert!
|My St. Paddy’s Day Garb|
|Authentic, right down to the colcannon and soda bread!|
|Almost too pretty to eat!|
I’ll cover the Tampa/Ybor City shoot in the next blog, along with my first ride on my new bike! And please feel free to let me know what you’d like to see in this blog. . .
