Ahhh...another poolside breakfast at an old Florida motel.
On this day, we visited the Dali museum. The temporary exhibit was about Ferran Adria who is a famous chef, and the show centered on food, the dining experience and his now defunct 3 star Michelin restaurant, elBulli in Spain.
We had lunch at Red Mesa Cantina in downtown St. Petersburg, which was completely spoiled by a nightclub upstairs playing dance music so loud that the walls shook. At lunch time.
We found the Dali & Gala mural and took photos. It's in an alley behind 953 Central Avenue.
In the afternoon we sampled craft beer at Green Bench in downtown St. Petersburg. I like their beer, but the vibe can vary from friendly to hoity toity depending on who is there and what's going on. I've seen a group doing acro-yoga there...there's giant Jenga...and a giant white square painted on the side of the building to show movies.
At night we were back on Clearwater beach and had dinner at a new restaurant, Marina Cantina. It is directly on the marina and we sat outside on a rooftop deck. Very pleasant.
