The Blue Waters of Tampa Bay

 "Now this is blue"
  "The Great White Egret" sitting on the rail of "The Pier" looking into the Tampa Bay
St. Petersburg, Florida

 My son came for a surprise visit on this day and we took a drive down to St. Pete and walked out on"The Pier"
Surprisingly enough this Pier is slated to be demolished in 2014. Yes a new one will go in it's place but this one is a landmark and will be missed.  There are shops and a food court along with an aquarium on the top floor.  A wonderful spot to sit and enjoy the weather.
We found the Egret  just sitting there posing by the blue waters.

Oh how I would love to walk around that pier. The egret photo is so lovely, Sandy. I like the green on his face.
