Gulfport Florida

Gulfport sits on the Boca Ciega Bay South of St. Petersburg, Florida. It’s a laid-back community of tree-lined streets, local restaurants and small art galleries. It has a nice pier on the Bay for crabbing and hanging out and a little beach where we found a volleyball tournament going on, then had lunch at Tangelos Grille on Beach Blvd.

 

We arrived a little early for the opening of the Blueberry Patch in Gulfport (see previous post) so we drove around the neighborhood a little to kill time. Came across a little green area with a pond, filled with White Ibis. Can’t ignore the birds.

 

Drove down Beach Blvd. to the Pier and met this fellow who told us all about manatees and where to find them.

Met a local mayoral candidate, who was excited for us to take her picture…

So, more to come. Love to hear what you have to say about our travels.
