A Taste of Florida


My girls and I went to St. Petersburg , FL last week and it was sunny and beautiful.  We hit the beach,

Beachthe town, and saw the girls’ grandma.  We also went on a nature preserve tour, and saw many lovely birds. We got to see the new Rio movie, and saw animated birds doing actual Samba!  It was a very fun movie.  We went to the Morean and saw the gorgeous Chihuly exhibit, and then the hot shop for glass blowing demo.  Click on the images to make them bigger.

We shopped at the greatest old (since 1933) bookstore, where a kitty named Teacup resides.



The store is called Haslam’s and is famous.  Our rental was right on the bay and looked like a Pottery Barn ad-gorgeous and spacious.

I did yoga on the huge outdoor patio with the little lizards and parrots.  I came home rested and inspired to finish my current art quilt called Dolphins Rising.
