A bit of advice: never fall asleep close to landing because when the rubber hits the road, it's alarming.
I'm traveling light. My suitcase only weighed 28 pounds and my carry on probably weighed more since it had oranges, crackers, sandwiches, almonds etc. in it.
The rental car dude tried to convince me to upgrade from my poor little compact car. This car, of course, comfortable fits four people. He even said that it was not fully automatic but the only thing not automatic are the doors i.e. no keyless entry but who needs it?
I should have brought more long-sleeved shirts though since it has been a tad bit cool in the Tampa/St. Pete area. Today's weather is a bit warmer and things are looking up for the next few days. I took an hour long walk on the beach and was relieved because I was starting to feel way too sedentary; it's hard to sit still these days.
I even missed rock climbing so I took over the children's playground for a minute.
My first meal in Tampa was at Evos. I joined their mission to end world grease. Loved the air-baked fries and the flavored ketchup (garlic, mesquite et al.) was amusing.
Been to the Tampa/St. Pete area? If you have any suggestions, I'm all ears...
