Oh dear the curse of Clearwater strikes. Still, the rain didn't spoil your day and I'm glad you found a 7-11 in time. The baseball game sounds fun and for a washout day made for a nice evening. I'm hoping you get to have a proper beach and pool day tomorrow.

I know I keep on saying it, but you can never let the weather bother you whilst in Florida, it must be a holiday thing asit really annoys us when it rains at home

Having spent a lovely lunch on Coco Beach pier watching baseball and eating chicken wings and oysters, I have next to zero clue how the game works! We would love to head to a basketball or baseball game next time we are in Florida but there doesn't ever seem to be much going on when we are there.

Nice looking dinner too. It's nice to get somewhere that'll serve you quickly without too much waiting. My kids have spent many a Florida dinner time with their heads on the table, half asleep before the food turns up! These things we've learned to avoid these days but even so, your boys did well to eat so late.

Sounds like you made the most of it and had a good day. Looking forward to hearing what else you get up to.
We were on the final few days of burning the candle at both ends and in the middle too!
Late food for the boys was needed by all of us!

Baseball is an amazing game to watch and the skill and expertise beyond compare.
No need for any understanding of the rules, it is the atmosphere and the experience more than anything.
Well worth doing though and at $7.11 each a total bargain. It is undercover in Tampa so will never get rained off

Today was one of those that you could have totally wasted , we didn't and the baseball helped to add to the special memories of the whole trip on a day that should have been a beach write off.

Thanks for reading

Never been to a major league game but we did go to a minor league game once, when we were staying in Siesta Key. Bradenton Marauders. It was so much fun! Dirt cheap. Family friendly. Kids playing games for prizes at half time. Stewards dancing in the aisles. Our steward explained some of the rules when he realised we were newbies. Lol.
They were all very excited about one young man (pitcher) who was destined for the majors. I couldn’t believe the speed they threw & caught those balls. Oh, & I caught a ball that was thrown out to the crowd. I gave it to a little boy sat behind me & you’d have thought it was the latest Fortnite toy - he was so excited. 🙂

Hope your next day was sunnier?


The minor league and indeed the Tampa Bay Rays experience is such a fantastic thing to see - possibly one many in the UK don't think about as they don't understand the game, no need to feel that way as someone will always help and will always guide you once they know you are from the UK
Getting a ball from the ball game is a huge thing for Americans attending, any wonder you made the little boys day

Day 25 coming soon, hopefully with added sunshine!

Thanks for reading and hope you enjoy the ending too

What a shame about the weather- you guys did so well at the shops though, some really fantastic bargains!

We did the same thing last year with the 7-11 tickets. We normally stay at St Pete Beach at the end of a Florida holiday and there is a 7-11 across the road from the Beachcomber Hotel. We heard an ad on the radio and Adam was sold! It was our second visit to the Rays Stadium and it was brilliant (as it was Cooper’s 12th birthday that day, Adam was cheeky and asked if we could swap seats and the usher was so kind and agreed. We ended up super close and he even caught a ball. We will never ever top that birthday!)



Love the dippin dots and your late night dinner looks just perfect for game night food. There really is great activities to do other than the parks in Florida! Another lovely day
