Finally getting to the last photos of my trip to Florida. These were taken on a day we went to Tampa to visit a mall, to look for clothes for Mr D and to the movies. For that reason there isn’t anything extremely eye-catching as we just went in and out of Tampa and it didn’t seem that interesting.

One of the funny details about America is the personalized license plates. I saw all kinds of phrases and even designs!

Downtown Tampa. The tallest buildings I’d seen in a while. 

We stopped at a traffic light and these girls were snapping photos of each other. I thought they were cute and it looked like they were having a lot of fun! They’re all dressed alike so I wonder what it was for?

Driving back home through a large stretch of road on the water. A very pleasant ride, I must say.

Hubby’s cat is 18 years old and she’s been with the family since he was a wee kid. She is cute but prefers to be left alone.

What I wore:
Headscarf : New Look
Beach pattern dress: Primark
Sandals : Thrifted at Goodwill
Hoping to go back to see the hubbs and take some more soon. Next trip to America will be to NYC and that is already booked. Keeping my fingers crossed Mr D can take time off work and uni to come and see me for a few days!

    As fotos estão magníficas. Gostei especialmente daquele tirada na ponte, sobre a água.

    You look so fresh and sunny in that sweet dress and sandals. I remember going to Tampa long ago but don't remember anything there. I do love that stretch of highway over the water.

    I love the highway on the water so cool
    We have personalized license plates in Quebec as well
    Very popular is the European license plate – let me explain – In quebec all you need is a license plate in the back, the front you can put whatever plate you desire – so this were the personalized plate goes –

    Looking lovely in the last pic,very cute dress

    I hope you see your hubby soon, that must hard sometimes

    Have a great weekend

    Every time I see that breed of cat I hear stories about how long they live yet how unique their temperament is. We had one that looked just like this one for 18 years. She never wanted to come in the house and refused to use a catbox if she was inside. She was so very loyal to the end though. I think she may have been a bit feral.

    You sure get around with your camera! One minute I think you're on one continent and the next I think you're on another. 😉

    Did you ask me about screen printing? I bought the equipment and took lessons to be able to do this at home and I'm just barely getting myself up and running. I had to wait for permits for reselling and buying wholesale from American Apparel. I had no idea it was going to be such a long process. But I should be selling things in my Etsy shop in a month or so hopefully.
