Our last hurrah and early Valentine’s celebration in Tampa before we move to Arizona. After a 5 year hiatus, Michael Bublé starts his Don’t Believe the Rumors tour here in Tampa to a sold out crowd. What a wonderful show …
Our 1st off-roading joyride on our 2015 Polaris Rzr 1000 XP 4. Excited to go with our neighbor who owns a side by side. Bill recently installed a horn and license plate kit so we can eventually make it street legal. We’re interested to learn how it rides on grass, gravel and sand. Here’s how it went.
Neighbor takes us on a joyride with his new all-terrain, off-road Yamaha Viking. It started on a crisp, cloudy morning – 67°F and 8:00am. I got caught in the barrel of a muddy wave! I’m thinking, “The person in front always gets it!” And it’s all caught on video. Thanks a mil, Simi..!
The Carnival Miracle has onboard activities like their: Playlist Productions at their Phantom Lounge; guests can participate in a Lip Sync Battle; join or spectate at the Hasbro Game Show. Personally, I had much enjoyment at the Metropolis Lobby/Atrium learning dance moves or at the RedFrog Pub for a challenging competition of shuffleboard.
Our 3rd visit to Belize. Our choice of port excursions were to visit the Mayan Ruins of Altun Ha (back in Mar.13, 2014) and to Snorkel with Nurse Sharks and Rays (more recently Oct. 4, 2018). This time around, our party of 4 go cave tubing at Nohoch Che’en – a national park throughout which the Caves Branch River runs with the added bonus of a zipline adventure. We will be tubing an area carved out of the limestone foothills of the Maya Mountains and where the river exits an underground cavern. Let’s go!
I have absolutely no experience with a sewing machine. Don’t own a machine. Never been inside a fabric store. This creative, crafty subject matter is absolutely foreign to me. I’ve been searching for sewing classes but all have skipped to projects that assume you are already familiar with a sewing machine, so when local Jo-Ann store scheduled a Beginner Basic Learn to Sew class, I was in!
Cooler weather has begun in Central Florida (high 70°Fs – 80°Fs), so outdoor exploration is easier to do. We dusted off our Brompton folding bikes. In search for a trail that our thin bike tires can easily maneuver, we found a trail surfaced in asphalt – Flatwoods Wilderness Park: a paved loop that provides a wooded environment with abundant wildlife (such as armadillo, turtles, hawks, and deer to name a few)… with an extension which connects Bruce B. Downs Boulevard for a few extra miles to add the ride.
