Highlights from vacation week in St. Petersburg, Florida included a dinner cruise on a riverboat. A couple from England had just gotten married, and we joined in celebrating their reception.

Ohh that looked like a wonderful trip, and you all had a great time. I'm jealous! lol. Those sunset pics, thats what the midnight sun is like here, but it don't go down, just cruises across the sky.
WOW I'm jealous too. How I would love to have walked around the farmers market with you. You even had sunshine - what more could you ask?!! So glad you enjoyed yourselves.
Yep, looks like you had a wonderful time. Coconut rum, I will have to search for that next time we buy wine.
Sunshine, warmth, lovely view and all those flowers... A dream holiday for me. Thank you for sharing.
