The weather has been a little cool for Florida the last few days. The temps have been in the low 70's and the wind has been blowing strong. Even with the weather like it is we decided to head for the beach on the motorcycle. We had to ride through the city to get there and decided to stay off the interstate and soak up some "local flavor".
We ended up in Indian Rocks Beach just across the bay from Tampa.
In the past we have stayed here when the kids were smaller renting a condo right on the beach. We had lots of fun playing in the sand and water with our kids so we have great memories of this area.
We saw several really nice homes that sit right on the beach. I couldn't even guess what it costs to buy and maintain a house like this but I am guessing a retired cop who now works as a work camping gate guard does not live here :-)
We did find some parking and walked out onto the beach. Rudee said the water felt really warm when she touched it. The weather is supposed to warm up some more and we hope to do some more "tourist" things. I'll keep you posted.
