Unfortunately it was raining and windy because of Tropical Storm Arlene.
See the sunny Gulf of Mexico?
Here we are crossing the sunny Sunshine Skyway bridge!
I finished my sock on the way, but realized I wouldn't have enough for another one. :(
I worked on Grace some, but kept dropping my cable needle (it was driving dh crazy!), so I put it away. I really need to learn how to cable without a needle!
I took this while waiting for dh to check in the hotel, it's one of the rooms, but not the one we stayed in.
The rain stopped for a moment, so we walked out to see the beach... not very pretty!
We ended up eating at the first Cheeburger Cheeburger, and then went to the local hangout (sports bar) to watch the Braves game (they lost). The next day we woke up to this....
What a difference! Unfortunately (or fortunately) we woke up at 10:00 am and had to check out at 11:00, so we really didn't get a chance to enjoy the beach.
We ate at Amy's Over Easy Cafe for breakfast, the food was great! And it was decorated so cute!!
After breakfast we went to the cutest needlework shop - Geez Lweez.
They carried many different types of yarn from Rowan to Lion's Brand. It was pretty cool!
This is what I ended up getting... 7 skeins of Rowan Handknit Cotton to make Jenny (short sleeve) from Rowan #37.
And here we are leaving the island. Too bad we couldn't have stayed a week! :)
Since I gave up on the other sock I decided to get my 2nd rainbow sherbet sock out!
Well, That was our trip. We did end up staying another night on St. Pete beach, but I don't have any pictures. We drove around a lot exploring different places we'd never been. I can't wait to go again! Well, not much else! Write more later!
