Did we stay at a charming tropical beachside bed & breakfast, where we had our own cottage? Yes, we did.
Did we visit some wonderful bookstores? Yes, we did.
Did we get totally lost and spend quite a bit of extra time swearing and driving around heretofore unexplored parts of the city? Yes, we did. (Sorry, no photo.)
Did we go to a baseball game at a hideous indoor stadium? Yes, we did.

Did we have a wonderful dinner that included the world's best onion rings? Yes, we did.(dining room photo courtesy of middlegroundsgrill.com)
Did we brave the Sunshine Skyway Bridge? Yes, we did. But we weren't too happy about it.
Why did the 'fraidy cats cross the bridge? There was a bookstore on the other side.

Did I ride the train home (because C.S. had to stay and work), departing from a gorgeous historic train station? Why, yes, I did!
