Hey, that's a nice park. You should see that place on a Sunday afternoon. It's nice seeing people enjoy our city's parks.

The place I am referring to is a housing project, not a park.

MacFarland Park is on MacDill and is just a park. There is Robles Park and Central Park that are public housing.

What I am referring to is the public housing skyrise on the corner of Rome and Main Street. Those projects that look so out of place that they look like they belong in Philly or Baltimore or the Bronx. I always hear that place referred to as Macfarlane park projects.

user 8 says tampa is an "overall-depressing city"?


hmmm i don't find anything depressing about a day like today, for example:

76 degrees, sunny, exquisite

started with an early jog in a gorgeous park (Swann Circle Park in Tampa)

got some delicious authentic Cuban breakfast, which i ate in the open air, of course, surrounded by 100-year-old oak trees

drove home, took me 5 minutes since of course, gridlock is non-existent most of the time where i live

did some pruning of my lemon trees, which are chock full of juicy, delicious lemons; harvested some tomatoes, red navels

spent some time with the family and the canines at Pass-a-Grille Beach, again, exquisite

did some work from home on my Macbook in the patio (thank you Verizon FIOS), while Cardinals, sparrows, and Carolina Wrens splashed in the birdbath, not to mention several monarch butterflies flitting about

went to the fishmonger and picked out some local redfish, which the seafood market guy is nice enough to filet for me, no whining, no extra charge, no waiting

slapped that on the grill

started work on my itinerary for tomorrow, which, since i am off work, includes a trip to the orange grove for U-pick honeybelle oranges in Dade City, and also a trip to pristine St. Leo for some golf

now getting ready to have a ridiculously fresh fish dinner outside with my SO and thank god that i live in this amazing place

TRY THAT IN ARLINGTON IN JANUARY!

it's easily done in july, except the fruit is not in season and it's brutally hot

but plenty of people love the heat (not me)

july is a great time for me to go to:

Canada

Montana

Maine

California

Aspen

(too bad the cuban food in the above places sucks)

Hancock Groves, call ahead to make sure he's got the honeybelle quadrant open.

here's a website; note that it says there is NO u-pick, but that is not true

i was just there 2 weeks ago U-picking navels and he said the honeybelles were about ready
