After a fun night, we returned to the Ringling Grounds for more Circus fun!

Right from the Tank!

And what is best after a couple of beers…

A Historical Walking Tour of Ybor City, Tampa!

The starting part of Tampa…

Once the cigar rolling capital of the world!

This bit of land was willed to the country of Cuba…

So we went to Cuba!!

And what do you do 2 hours of walking and listening on a bright sunny day?

Go to another Brewery!

Tampa Bay Brewing Company!

After that an afternoon rest was needed before our evening of friend and family festivities!

Fortunately catching up with those was so fun and interesting, someone forgot to take photos!

But it was great seeing everyone!  

And also the wild partying on 7th Street in Ybor!

All in All…I think my birthday boy had a great time…success!

I am lucky to have such a fun-loving and giving man.

Every day is a celebration as we love each other more today than yesterday!
