Our area is gearing up for the RNC and the thousands of people expected to come for the three day convention. From what I can see the streets are getting a cleaning up and the hotels are sprucing up. The shops and restaurants are all so happy to see the money coming as people will be spending lots of it.
I am not endorsing any party but just want to share a few of the decorations going up around the Tampa Bay area.
I took a ride over to Clearwater Beach to see what was going on and found more Dolphins than I expected.
As you come across the causeway onto the beach drive you will be greeted by dozens of Dolphins around the circle of Pier 60 park. The local business all got together and bought a Dolphin and were told to paint it with their own art work and I took a few photos as they lined the park with these really interesting dolphins. Each had a sign at the bottom with the business name.
In the banner below you can see Pier 60 as it jetties off Clearwater Beach into the Gulf from the park. This pier is normally full of fishermen, and on a normal day the beach is totally full of vacationers.
Some people call it paradise. I call it a great place to walk.
From what I was told, once the convention is over the Dolphin will be scattered around Tampa Bay in different parks and hot spots for all to enjoy.
If you come down to Tampa Bay in the future you may run into some of these Dolphins scattered around town.
This week I'm going to drive the area and see more of the decorations that will be put up to entice and entertain the visitors expected.
