Spring Break in Florida

We spent a few days in Florida over spring break, which now feels like a thousand years ago. It was a great, much appreciated little getaway, though, and I thought I’d share some of my favorite pictures from the trip.

CW went down a few days ahead of me for a huge conference in his field, and I stayed here in town to finish out the school week, then drove down to Tampa to meet him.

Jellies
Us & Shark

That night, we attended a work-related party at the Florida Aquarium, where I got to get up close and personal with all kinds of sea creatures. (Yes, that’s a shark in the background above.)

Seen on the run this morning. Tampa, you're all right with me.

Just Browsing

The next day, I spent my time running along the riverfront, browsing used bookstores, and drinking wine at lunch. It was lovely.

Saturday Market

Sunflowers

Tomatoes

The next day, after the conference was finished, we moved across the bay to St. Petersburg for a little recreation. It is such a lovely town! We lucked out in that our stay there coincided with their big Saturday Market, so we got to browse around, eat arepas from a food truck, and drink Bloody Marys while shopping.

Light

We spent the afternoon in the Salvador Dalí Museum, which is completely lovely. A few snaps of the fun architecture, incredible art work, and, beautiful gardens:

Bubble

Mustache

That night, we basically ate our way through town.

Appalachiacola Oysters

Ceviche at Ceviche

We ate fresh Appalachiacola oysters (I rarely eat animals, but these were a nice treat), drank wine at an adorable wine bar with a little balcony overlooking the street, and then had tapas at the restaurant adjoining our hotel, Ceviche. Recommended.
