Yesterday we spent all day at the Fort DeSoto National Park. It is located in Tierra Verde (St Petersburg), and has a little bit for everyone.
Boy did we all get a lot of exercise! We walked a total of 3 hours, and in between we played at the off leash dog park and beach, and had a great water front picnic as well as went hunting for sea creatures and explored the old fort. A great day!
A walk on the dog beach, where all dogs can run free. It doesn't hurt that the beach is part of North Beach, which was voted the best US beach in 2008!
One of the sea creatures we found, a baby Horseshoe Crab. It is not really a crab despite the name, it is actually a relative to the ancient trilobite.
This guy was super fast as soon as you put him down, so I had a hard time getting a picture of his shell.
Sarah, the dogs and I check out one of the many cannons at the fort. You can also climb the steep stairs and get on top of the fort, and the view from up there was wonderful.
Now, the start of a super busy work week. Take care!
