As Ian was collecting some other items from the truck a policeman came up to him...uhoh..what did we do? The policeman asked if he had someone with a handicap in the car as we had left the hangtag in the window from before. Ian said, "yes, my wife". The policeman told him that people with disabilities don't have to pay for parking in Florida. He couldn't do anything about the fact that we already paid but for furure parking...we don't need to pay! I say what??? Free parking? Not only does the wonderful sun replenish my body with vitamin D to help my MS but I get to park for free??? BONUS! And what's better yet, even though we parked in a regular spot and not the handicap spot, it still would count just as long as the tag is hanging in the window. I LOVE Florida!
We set up on the beach and then the girls wanted to head to the playground first.
|There are a few nice sized playgrounds. These two are covered |
and nice and cool with the shade and a small breeze.
On the way back we stopped and bought a beach turtle. By far the best $15 we've spent on a toy in awhile. We all had lots of fun with Mr Turtle and surprisingly enough, it can hold all 4 of us at the same time.

|"this is no fair...aayla gets a turn and I don't!" Meanwhile |
you saw all the pictures above with Sierra having her turn...
|"Guess I'll just have to sit here and wait"|
We spent all day at the beach. The water was so warm.
Playing in the sand,
...but mainly swimming with our turtle.
|"Me, Me, Me I do it all by myself!"|
As the sun was setting we packed up and headed to the pier as daddy packed up and headed out to watch the hockey game.
|mmmm pizza for dinner|
Now to decide...go back to Clearwater beach tomorrow because we had so much fun there or drive down and check out St Pete's Beach? Decisions decisions with life on the road ;)
