One Sunday we packed a picnic basket with fruits, snacks and sandwiches. Our destination was the Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park in Downtown Tampa Bay.

We arrived early to secure a shade from one of the trees lining the walk way between the field and the playground. It was a much needed daycation. That’s what I call a random day to go somewhere I haven’t been before. We had fun, talked, relaxed, ate and walked along the waterfront.

There is something to be said when a pause is taken from the routine just to explore a part of town that promotes enjoying the outdoors. I’d like to go back soon, until then I’ll enjoy the view.
