Tuesday April 16th~

It's really not about what you have. It's about
 how you're able to enjoy life in general...

 Arvid and I chose to go to the Tampa Bay Blues Festival
 on day three.  The last day because the musicians on this 
day were the ones Arvid wanted to hear play the most.

Usually the temperatures can get all the way to the 90F
 and higher (32C)  This year we were "lucky" because the highs 
were in the lower 80F (26C) and cooling down in the evenings
 to the 60F (15C) which is nice.  But even so the heat was too much, 
especially when there was not a single cloud in the sky.  Was brutal.
We had on hats, long sleeves, but the heat was just too much 🌞

To stay hydrated I had lemonade, which was mostly water.  
Lots of ice and of course more water.  Arvid hydrated with beer,
 and ended the evening with a coke.  Said he had enough beer.

Every so often we would go and cool off by the water
 and also hoping to catch a glimpse of the dolphins.

By evening the temperatures cooled down nicely.  You 
can tell right away who was Floridian.  We all started to put 
sweaters on and the temperature was still around 72F (22C)

Most cities are beautiful at nights, and St. Pete is no exception.

During one of our last strolls by the water we did see the dolphins,
 and boy did he put on a little show for us.  He kept turning upside
 down and swimming back and fort next to us.  Made up for the heat.

This may have been our last Tampa Bay Blues Festival, 
but I know we will go back to St. Pete.  It is a cool and
 hip place in the evenings, and just so beautiful.  
The Pier definitely stands out at nights.

After all is said and done, Vinoy Park
 is a beautiful setting for the Blues Festival.

Wishing everyone a very good day.  Arvid and I 
were a bit tired and over heated yesterday.  Today we
 are back to being ready to be on the move again.  

Lighten up, just enjoy life, smile more, laugh more, 
and don't get so worked up about things...
