So I was on one of my annual trips to Apollo Beach Florida and I had a free afternoon. The kids were in school and I didn’t have any plans with friends so I decided to head down to the Apollo Beach Nature Preserve.
The nature preserve is located on the east side of Tampa Bay. (See a previous blog 11/7/11 Apollo Beach, on Florida’s Gulf Coast) I just wanted to hit the beach to maybe find a few special shells or sea glass. As I parked the car two gentlemen approached me to ask a question “I suppose this lady will know the answer to this” said one of them.
They wanted to know which of the set of buildings were Tampa and which set of buildings were St. Petersburg. I told him it wasn't a local but I certainly could clarify the sets of buildings. I told them I might be able to help them out with some additional questions. And yes indeed I answered their questions plus many more to their satisfaction. Another lady standing nearby verified my comments, “Yes she is correct about all of it.”
I did the same and resumed my search along the narrow beach looking for shells, sharks teeth and sea glass.
Since I visit at various times of the year I can't truly be called a winter snowbird but I'm thinking I might be more correctly called an Apollo Beach manatee.
