Since we had a kitchenette in our room, one morning we ate our breakfast at the table in the photo.
Treasure Island :
We wanted to be close to the beach so we stayed on Treasure Island at the Sunrise Motel. We chose this place because of the price and because we wanted a kitchenette so we wouldn't have to eat all of our meals out. This place was clean and quiet and we could walk to the beach.
When we were here in 2005 we stayed at the Mardi Gras on Treasure Island, which also had a kitchenette. We had hoped to stay there again this time but they were all booked up when we called.
St. Petersburg (area) Dining :
Indian Rocks Beach :
As we drove along Gulf Blvd., which connects the islands west of St. Petersburg, we spotted a place called Café de Paris Bakery, so we stopped and enjoyed a scrumptious buckwheat crepe with cheese and egg, a yummy fruit tart, and a delicious chocolate croissant.
Madeira Beach :
When we were here in 2005 we ate at The Hut in John's Pass on Madeira Beach (near Treasure Island) and had a wonderful time. We stopped at John's Pass this time to do some shopping and there were several restaurants there that looked inviting with their open-air seating on the second level but we'd weren't hungry at the time.
