A Room Without a Roof!

April 13, 2014:

Because we’re HAAPPEEEEYYY!  Who wouldn’t be with this set-up in St. Pete?  Fresh off the boat, we found ourselves right on the downtown strip.  Lots of upscale bars and restaurants, a resort hotel and even a super swanky rooftop lounge.  We spent our first night in St. Pete high on the town!

Jenny, what Jenny?  That’s a problem for tomorrow!  Enjoy the show:

Walking the downtown strip on Parkshore Drive.

“Why, thank you Captain.  Don’t mind if I do!”

Drinks and dinner at the Parkshore Grill.

Too bad we dug into dinner before this “foodie” could snap her shots.  Whoops.  But– take my word for it — it was awesome.  A stacked juicy cheeseburger with hand-cut fries!

Drinks (yes, more!) this time at The Birchwood Rooftop Bar:

We could actually look out and see our boat there in the mooring field.  Soooo cool.

See?  You’d be happy too!  We were definitely digging St. Pete.  Not a bad place to be stuck for repairs.  Not a bad place at all …
