Thanks for reading - hope you keep reading as there is much to do in the Tampa area apart from heading to the beach

That water was so much warmer than North Bay

As for the Outlets in Tampa, they are so quiet and we have always picked up some bargains, even stuff we have seen in Orlando is more heavily reduced and in adidas we also picked up some Orlando football shirts for a bargain price a couple of years ago. Worth having a look as I have found the Orlando outlets to be expensive in comparison to those out of the tourist bubble there.
More shopping incoming too

That would help

It's the Sandpearl !
Booked through BA at a price that we could not find anywhere else online.
Beautiful place to stay and with staff and service that were so fantastic. Yes, it is an expensive place but we were so pleased to be here.

I've added a bit into the trip report to make it more clear where we are staying - thank you for asking as it needed to be in there

Tampa outlets have always cost us a few dollars in spends

So do I
Clearwater has a magnificent beach, huge and you can always just find some space for yourself the further away from Pier 60 you get.
The water needs some delicate comparison lets put it this way - you are quicker into the water in Clearwater
Our Joe won't even contemplate a sea visit at home as it does simply freeze the Trossachs off!

As for the bargains - have to love going shopping when you think you are paying next to nothing
It is the reason I refuse to go shopping for clothes in the UK!

Thanks for reading

I think I have still got enough clothes from the last couple of trips to see me through to 2025

As for nearing the end
It has been so great to type all of these Florida days for so many years and I am not really looking forward to the end!
Going to miss everyone who keeps posting replies

Teh food was amazing - this was a great find in 2013 and it was great to be back again.

I would imagine Clearwater would be a the most amazing place to emigrate to
Have to admit that 2 weeks here sounds a great place to explore the west coast and all it has to offer

Thanks for reading and leaving a reply - really appreciated

There are more back seat pics in the next couple of days - they needed a cull!

Do love a bargain at the Outlets

Nice bit of bargain hunting.

I make the mistake of downloading all the backseat photos and have a similar problem ! More in car pics up coming - means we don't miss things that I can't capture whilst driving

The start of the shopping and even more bargains to come!
'Plastic Carrier Bags' needed
