FridayFoto: Guest Bench


I came across this bench while taking a stroll on the southernmost tip of Pass-A-Grille Beach in Saint Petersburg. There was this interesting diary with a pen in a metal box attached to the bench. The journal is for anyone wishing to write in it and share their thoughts and feelings from such a beautiful viewpoint. I found this to be a very original and inspiring idea!

Follow your Dreams, They will always lead the Way!!


What have you come across during a beach stroll? Would love to hear from you 🙂

Island’s End Resort on Pass-A-Grille Beach, FL

Comments 2 Standard

I took a drive yesterday and went to Pass-A-Grille Beach to visit the Island’s End Resort.  The resort sits at the very tip of St. Pete Beach where the Gulf of Mexico and Intercostal waters meet. It’s consider to be Tampa Bay’s best-kept secret and I will share with you why.  When I arrived, there were guests eating breakfast and checking out, so I was not able to take photos of the cottages, but I did take lots of photos of the grounds.

The resort itself has ranked #4 of 7 in St. Pete Beach Bed & Breakfast and Inns.  You are truly surrounded by everything shops, restaurants and best of all the beach! From the resort you can watch dolphins playing, fishing boats and all the sunset and sunrise you ever want to see!!

Walkway to the resort

As soon as you walk through this pathway you are greeted with the tranquility, the sea air and the sound of the seagulls.

Before you enter the walkway to the resort, on the ground you will see another pathway in the form of seashells. Throughout the resort, you will notice the small details that went into the décor of the outside of this resort. It was one of the things that I loved the most about it!!

If you’re someone like me who loves the sunsets, then spending time on this hammock would be an ideal treat! It even comes with instructions on how to properly sit on a hammock.
