St. Pete's Beach, Florida

We visited St. Pete's Beach back in June 2011. We usually go to Fort Lauderdale, but we thought we'd try somewhere different. I can't remember for the life of me which hotel we stayed in. To be honest, it wasn't anything special, nothing to write home about at all! It was on the beach though, not far from the Don CeSar. Sadly, it wasn't the Don CeSar. We often walked up the beach and had a nose in and had major hotel envy! Next time for definite..... Bad hotel choice aside, we had a fab time there. We ate at some great restaurants, but what I was most impressed with, was the stunning beaches! We went to Fort De Soto Park for the day and it was just heavenly. We got there fairly early, as we guessed that as the day would develop the busier it would get. We were right, but it didn't matter, as we had a good spot. I remember having an ice-cream there (probably vanilla, I always go for vanilla!) and it was soo good!

Good morning, good morning!

I hope everyone's had/having a fab weekend. As you know, Sunday is the start of the week here in the UAE, as Friday and Saturday are our weekends. I've packed hubby off to work and I'm catching up with emails etc over a cup of green tea before I embark on my usual Sunday, of blitzing the house from top to bottom! #domesticgoddess We had a fantastic end to our weekend. After a great shopping day Friday. We sat out in the sun on Saturday for a couple of hours, then went and checked out the new coffee shop that's opened up near us, at Al Hamra Marina, called Tucano Coffee. As it was still the middle of the day and blazing sunshine we went for a very calorific milkshake each! I went for the Vanilla m&m's and hubby had the Chocolate m&m's. They were lovely with loads of cream on top! But, the m&m's were peanut, a bit disappointing, as we're not a fan, so next time we'll opt for them without! Still it was lovely sitting out overlooki
