Boogying On A Boat
I had an easy-going breakfast at my hotel before heading to the Museum of Fine Arts. It was a bit intimating walking in with all the guards but I guess they need to make sure no one touches the art works or brings food in. In the museum it was like being in a time machine, going back through time, as I admired all the art works and sculptures. The Five Decades of Photography exhibit was inspiring as it took me on a journey through the recent history of the world. Before leaving I quickly pooped into the gift shop were I bought the Food + Art Cooking Around Tampa Bay Book that I will treasure.
After a bit of a rest I put on my fancy clothes and boarded the cruise boat called Starlite. It was a 2 and a half hour dinner cruise full of dancing and gourmet food. The horn sounded, the live music started playing and the lines were cast off signally the start of an adventure. On the cruise I danced, explored the vessel and sat out on the balcony watching the dolphins frolicking in the water below me. The food on the cruise was alligator smile worthy. For entree I had a hard choice, tossing up between Stuffed Shrimp and Chateaubriand. I ended up getting Chateaubriand because I had no idea what it was and was ready for a taste bud adventure. Than for dinner I enjoyed the Chef's special followed by an elegant passion fruit panna cotta for dessert. After dinner I went back to the deck where I did some star gazing and 'danced the night away' to hits from the ‘60’s ‘70’s and ‘80’s. The cruise soon ended and I went back to my motel with the memories of the adventure with me.
