St Pete Beach

The day before I school started we had 'one last blast' by taking a trip to St Petersburg.  We are extremely fortunate to live in a vacation location with so much to do.  We visited a fruit winery for a tour and tasting.  I know what you are thinking... "Carly, all wine is made from fruit."  But they use Florida fruits.  Our favorite wines were mango, pineapple, category 5.  Remember the chocolate oranges that you can buy at the gift-shops in FL?  They have a wine called cocoa beach that has the exact taste. Unfortunately we were not allowed to take pictures of the winery.  Afterward we headed about 2 miles west to spend some time at St Pete Beach.  (Where I was allowed to take pictures.)

It was a beautiful day with a light breeze and amazing clouds.
While walking the beach we came upon a web cam.  Dylan and our friend are calling their parents, who were able to see them live.
There were surprisingly very few people on the beach.
These strange birds were hanging out with the seagulls.  Any idea what they are?
