LEAVING MY MARK ON THE ISLAND OF ST. PETE BEACH!

St Pete Beach, FL

Hello Sassy Peeps!

Hope all is well! So last week I found myself in a part of Florida that I never knew existed, called ST. PETE BEACH, FL. I usually hang out in north and south Florida, so when I was invited to explore the west part of the state I couldn’t wait for the journey to begin!

A few days after I received the invite I reached out to my mom, and asked her if she wanted to take one of our Gibson Gal Road Trips and hang out on a new beach, with new Floridians for a few days. She was totally down and a about a month later we hit I-75 heading west. In just a little under four hours we were on the quaint and magical Pass-a-grille, St. Pete Beach Island ready to get the party started.

When I originally heard the name Pass-a-grille I was immediately intrigued. I found out that Pass-a-Grille Beach, Pinellas County — is referred to the practice of fishermen, who would stop here on their way crossing over the island to cook or grill their meals. I have to tell you guys this totally makes sense, because everyone that I encountered on the island was extremely nice, extremely laid back and there are fishing piers everywhere. Pass-a-Grille is the perfect name for this place! It totally fits.

Since our Inn was only steps away from the beach, I was there pretty much the entire time. I know that this post is a little out of sync. I am sure most of you expected me to write about the Inn and the overall experience first, but I decided to switch things up a bit. There was so much to take in that I am still trying to wrap my mind around the memorable and totally epic trip. So no worries there are several articles soon to come.

During my time there I literally fell in love with the place, and as I walked up and down the sandy beach I decided to leave my mark on the island by capturing a picture of my foot prints. I am sure that only a few minutes after I took the photo the water washed them away, but I still have that moment captured on camera and imprinted in my mind forever! Each time I visit, I will always go to my little spot of one of the most wonderful beaches that I have ever by blessed to experience.

    I love the beaches in Florida. I don't think I have been to this one. What a great way to remember the beach with your footprints in the sand.
