More pictures from my walk around the yacht basin at Davis Islands in Tampa.
Eventually a storm was moving in so I headed back to my car.
Shots from my phone of downtown Tampa.
Flowers on my walk.

A beautiful day to walk around and admire all of the yachts in the basin.

I hadn’t been over to Davis Islands in downtown Tampa to walk around in a long time. I use to go over and walk around the yacht basin all the time. It is usually packed with joggers, dog walkers, bicycle riders and walkers. The morning I was there was very quiet. I guess because it was so hot outside that early.

A beautiful pre-Christmas day. It was a perfect day for sailing but I don’t think a single sailboat was missing. What a waste!

The sun was trying to come out.
I know I’m rubbing it in. This was a perfect day. You could be here instead of under 5 feet of snow. I didn’t even have a jacket on but there was a cool breeze.
There’s still a few butterflies around.

Two weeks until Christmas and it was 75 degrees. I had errands to run and chores to do before family came into town so I stayed close to home and stopped by the Safety Harbor fishing pier in between errands. I hadn’t been there in months. There were still a few manatees hanging around the pier but it was too hard to get a picture. The sun was up high making the water looked dark. I would have just gotten their snout coming up for air.
