To all the Mother's....

This is the day to stop, remember, and pray for that special person in our life, without whom we would not have been, what we are today; a day to prove that all her efforts, towards making us a complete person, have been worthwhile and make her feel proud for us.

The reason why I am celebrating mother's day!

Happy Mother's Day Mama, Mom and all the mothers in the world!

Friendship Trail Bridge

We recently discovered this trail bridge near us. Actually we've heard about Friendship bridge before, far from knowing we're few minutes away from it. Now we are walking on this bridge almost everyday and enjoying it! We usually walked at least a third of a way. I don't think we can cross thru Tampa, that's a long way to walk!

I am not a walker I usually complain in a long walk, while L loves to walk. We've walked to so many trails and parks here in Pinellas, Florida but I love this one. I never complain walking on this bridge. I feel free walking there, and feel like near to nature.

At first it was awkward because we keep looking behind us thinking there's a car coming. This was a highway bridge before, converted to trail bridge. People are walking, skating, bicycling and fishing. Caroline loves walking there too, she see lots of birds and mimic their sounds.

Anyway here's an article about this bridge:

What is The Friendship Trail Bridge?

Located over Tampa Bay, the "old" Gandy Bridge was renovated from a traffic-bearing bridge to become a recreation trail at 2.6 miles long - 13,770.5 ft. This bridge was saved from the wrecking ball when Pinellas County and Hillsborough County responded to a "Save the Gandy" bridge campaign by citizens" by assuming ownership from the state.

The "old" Gandy Bridge is now renamed "Friendship TrailBridge" and links Tampa and Pinellas County over Tampa Bay, a national estuary. It is a unique venue for bicyclists, in-line skaters, runners, joggers, family strollers, fishermen and persons with disabilities. Existing catwalks for fishermen were also enhanced from this recent project upgrade.
