The unexpected trip.

“Why are we going to Tampa instead of St. Augustine?”  I asked my wife as we drove down the interstate.  For weeks we had planned a trip to St. Augustine.  We had been there a year ago and wanted to go back to catch the things we missed.  A sudden change of events affected the money side of the equation, but I was at a loss to see a real difference besides just gas money.

“Because the hotels and the restaurants are cheaper.” She explained to me.

Still, I was less than enthusiastic.  It was Tampa, after all.  We’ve been to Tampa already.  Many times in fact.  We’ve done the aquarium, Bush Gardens, the Imax (now closed, unfortunately), the auto show, and even Hyde Park Village.  What’s left to see?

Plenty it turns out, especially when you throw in a day trip to Tarpon Springs.  I’ll be posting about our adventures in the days to come, but for now a few teasers.
