Tampa Treats

One must take a short ferry ride over to the highly touted and unspoiled Caladesi Beach.
Red Mangrove swamps greet visitors. Sunken Gardens is truly "Old Florida" at its best.
Once a tourist attraction in the 30's, it continues to show off examples of tropical flora and fauna such as: Bird of paradise
Chilean flamingoes
Golden shrimp plant
lobster claw plant

Beautiful vegetation... the flamingo is sooooo pretty... I love their colour! Amazing they can stand on those skinny legs and on one... wow!
Enjoy your weekend!
