Our day started off with a trip to Tampa to visit Busch Gardens. We haven’t been here since 2011, so I was looking forward to the visit. They haven’t added anything big since we were last here, so it was just a chance to walk around and look at all the animals.
After we spent a few hours in the park we headed over to our hotel in Clearwater Beach and took a swim in the Gulf. As many times as I’ve been to Tampa, I never went further than Tampa Bay so this was my first time visiting the gulf.
