Let's Ride Over The Bridge To St. Pete

Today's weather in the Tampa Bay was so nice and cool and dry that it felt like that first nice spring day in the northeast, when the warmness of the afternoon gives you an energy jolt. There was an extra spring in my legs this afternoon and a natural ride was to head over the Gandy Bridge to St. Pete's waterfront from Seminole Heights.

I was cycling in the Gandy Bridge shoulder when I took a look next-door and saw the shut-down Friendship Trailbridge. What a pathetic shame -- a bridge offering amazing access to thousands shut down for structural problems and for lack of political will to repair.

It was a joy to bike today and downtown St. Pete and its waterfront were abuzz. Check out the Dali -- the new museum is a must visit in St. Pete.

Baseball is back -- University of Miami was at the downtown St. Pete ball park.

From The Hangar restaurant-- great perch to see the downtown St. Pete airfield.

Uh-oh -- looks like someone with a penchant for mischief had a little fun with this church sign.
