Florida 2019
For our twenty-seventh visit to Florida, we have flown with British Airways from Gatwick to Tampa - in a change from the route we have used in the last few years: Manchester to Orlando with Virgin Atlantic. This new route has a number of advantages, including the fact that Tampa Airport is much closer to our destination (Bradenton) than Orlando. Our first night's stop after arriving in Florida is at the Hampton Inn & Suites adjacent to Tampa Airport
From our hotel room we can see the easy route that we should have driven from the car rental pick-up to the hotel just across this highway - instead we managed to completely circle the airport before finding the hotel
Our first full day in Florida is David's 78th Birthday
For the fifteenth successive year our accommodation is at a villa on a golf community at Heritage Harbour
Some of the residents of Heritage Harbour have decorated their property for Halloween
Although our favourite area for walking, Beacon Lake, is now dominated by the newly built (and ugly) Costco Warehouse, some of its attractive features and preponderance of wildlife still exist
