Snowbirds love Florida’s Nature Parks

When it’s 82* outside it’s a little too warm for the beach so we go picture taking. The Tampa Bay/Clearwater area covers two counties, Hillsborough and Pinellas, and both are rightfully proud of their many scenic and recreational parks. Many were built to control water run-off and then made multifunctional. All have winding paths through the moss laden oaks, benches & picnic tables, and abundant wildlife. “Disc Golf” is big down here with courses in many Parks. Tampa’s Hillsborough County now charges an entry fee of $2, but Clearwater’s Pinellas County offers free access to its Parks. Yesterday afternoon, Niki and I were able to visit 3 Parks in Pinellas County before closing time.
