The view made it all worthwhile, looking out over Tampa Bay. We spotted a pelican on the way home who wasn't too impressed with much of anything. I thought our cat liked to sprawl in the sun.
We took some time off this morning (I know, gasps all around) and walked out to the end of The Pier to watch the start of the St Petersburg Yacht Club's Regatta Del Sol Al Sol (that's spanish for 'from the sun, to the sun'). It's a sailboat race from the SPYC to Isla Mujeres, off Cancun, Mexico. It's 400 miles and takes from 3 to 9 days, depending on the winds. It was a spectacular day, clear, sunny, sparkling. The wind was noticeably missing, though, and it was a slow start.
