Home for Christmas

It was about 50 degrees this morning in Georgia when we left for Tampa.  The skies cleared up nicely as we traveled south.  It was in the mid 70’s when we arrived.  We went to Sam’s Club and Target for some last minute Christmas shopping then to Mom’s for our traditional Christmas Eve dinner of home made pizza. 

There is some severe weather in Louisiana heading for south Georgia.  Rain is predicted in Tampa, so we may not be able to go to the beach for our traditional Christmas morning at the beach.

Well we did make it to the beach Christmas morning.  We went to Fort Desoto Beach in St Pete.  It was cloudy and rained some but we had a beautiful morning.  It was pretty warm except for the wind blowing off the gulf water.

We spent the rest of the day with the family and had to head home on the 26th so that Al could get ready for his trip to North Dakota.

Here are some photos from our ride back to Georgia.



This is just one of a lot of billboards that flood the highway from Tampa north on I-75.  I think they are in poor taste and don’t speak well of the state.


Isn’t that a nice sign for children to see.  Some of the signs are more explicit.

There is another series of signs that is on the other end of the spectrum. They are anti abortion signs stating different things that a baby’s heart beat starts at 18 days.  Much more tasteful in my opinion.

Loved the beach photos - especially the birds.

We saw those same billboards on I-75. Pretty disgusting to think that children see those.
