Nov 25, 2014 - Fisherman's Park

We have seen about 4 mini-parks on our journeys into the residential areas around St. Pete Beach. These parks are on small lots, usually at the end of a block, and it appears that the property was donated, or the city or county owns them. It is also interesting that these mini-parks are generally on the water-front, which would be ideal for a small, cozy, two story home about 900 square feet or so. I would think the community would rather have a nice shady park vs. another private dwelling that would block the total view to the water....

Travels In Serenity

Jun 18, 2013 - St. Pete Beach

We journeyed into St. Pete beach to buy a few items at the local farmers market. As summer comes into view, there are less, and less vendors. We visited a few of the shops that dot Corey Avenue, and then we stopped for groceries and headed back to camp. All-In-All it was a nice 'simple' outing! Here are a few pictures for you!

Aug 4, 2010 - A Red Hot End

Today was our last day here and we made the most of it. I went to the closing session of the conference while Gary and Dillon chilled at the pool. Our session ended early, so I joined them before lunch. Dillon decided to participate in some of the kids’ activities hosted by the resort. We got him some lunch and dropped him off at pirate camp. Gary and I chilled out for a bit and went to the Shark Tooth Tavern to finish our bar crawl and earn a free t-shirt. When Dillon’s camp ended, it was back to the pool for the belly flop contest. Dillon...

The Fitz 3 go South

Aug 3, 2010 - Water, Water Everywhere, Not a Tar Ball Anywhere

So you see what happens when I turn the vacation narration over to Gary, you don’t hear from us for a few days. That’s OK, he’s done an excellent job being Mr. Mom while I was at my conference. We arrived on Sunday at the Tradewinds Resort in St. Pete’s Beach, FL. It’s really pretty and a nice place, but unfortunately we were assigned a room with a broken air conditioner. HTB doesn’t cover it. A call to the front desk and a visit from an engineer and faster than you can say,” Hotter Than Balls,” they had the old one out and a new one in. It...

The Fitz 3 go South

Mar 7, 2009 - St. Pete Beach

Since my sister-in-law, Gerda, is driving up from Sanibel to St. Petersburg, I decided to join her for a couple of days. She is very much into shelling and has entered and won ribbons at the Sanibel Shell Show for her Sailor Valentines. We stayed at Howard Johnson's Hotel right on the beach. On Sunday we took the shuttle over to Shell Key and spent four hours walking the beach and shelling. This is a uninhabited barrier island off of St. Pete Beach. A large section is protected for the nesting birds. I collected a variety of the larger...

Sep 13, 2008 - So much to do...so little time

A little less than a week to go. How do we pack for something like this? Everyone asks, and as experienced as we have been, this is a daunting task. We received word just four days ago that the first scheduled port we were to visit (Petropavlovsk, Russia) has been scrubbed. Our best guess is that the recent invasion of Georgia by Moscow has raised international tensions and the Russians are doing their thing, making things difficult. And, as we all now know, the Governor of Alaska, aka the "barracuda", is the titular (no, that's a real...

Mar 23, 2008 - St Pete's Beach Trip

We travelled from Fish Camp to St. Pete’s Beach since it was less than a couple hours away. It was great sitting on the beach enjoying a few cold beverages. We should have put on a second coat of sun screen since we both ended up a little red. We packed a couple of sandwiches to tide us over on the beach. We watched 4 people kiteboarding. They were way up the beach and went by us in the air over the water. We left before they returned. We were amazed that they can go any direction and not have to just go with the wind. We also stopped at a...
