Wild Days With Bindi Irwin and Jack Hannah

     Feel the need to leave the Gasparilla traffic behind for the day? Here’s an Ann-Venture that’s not only fun, you’ll learn a little something at SeaWorld’s Wild Days. But you’ll have to head over this weekend or next since its only select dates.      Bindi Irwin, the ...

Eagle Patrol Update!

   It’s not often I can wear out a camera battery as fast as I did on my latest Ann-Venture on Honeymoon Island, but this was a breeze. Literally. Once the rain ended but the winds certainly did not, it was time to enjoy the overwhelming natural beauty that is ...

A Brand New Alaskan Ann-Venture

    A great vacation is full of moments you never forget. That’s what a cruise and land tour with YMT Vacations to Alaska is all about and I’m thrilled to invite you along to create those moments for yourself.  I will always remember pulling away from the port in Vancouver ...

Eagle Patrol

   This past weekend was just beautiful, the kind of weather that has the beaches crowded and the parks full of families out on the trails. Honeymoon Island’s Osprey Trail has been getting much busier, not because of the weather but in anticipation of some new arrivals. The eagle’s nest ...

Ann-Venturous New Year

   Instead of sitting home and watching the ball drop…again…get the family together and join us for a New Year’s Ann-Venture at First Night St Pete. This completely family-friendly, alcohol free celebration takes over downtown St Pete with enough so many things to choose from no one in the family ...

The Disney Dream docked at Castaway Cay

My Disney Dream

     I think I like being spoiled. A lot. Taking a cruise will do that! My latest Ann-Venture on board The Disney Dream took me from Port Canaveral to Nassau in the Bahamas to Castaway Cay, which is Disney’s private island. We should all have one. But in between all ...

Dancers Make A Difference

    Whether you follow Julie Weintraub on Facebook or Twitter, or drop in to see her at The Gold And Diamond Source you know this is a woman who redefines passion. Julie’s charity foundation “Hands Across The Bay” has helped many families in need , helped raise awareness for issues ...

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

     Last week, I took a beautiful hand-tinted picture of my mother to Michael’s to have it framed and it now hangs in my front room where I see it every day. This past week, my mom Mary Jane celebrated her 84th birthday. The American Cancer Society likes to ...

My Alaskan Ann-Venture

   I’ve been asked countless times just what my Ann-Venture to Alaska with YMT Vacations was like. It was simply one of the most spiritual experiences I’ve ever had. I say that for a number of reasons. The pristine beauty of the landscape, the warmth of the people and the ...

RareHues Debuts

     When a new business opens for the first time they hold their breath and wait for that first customer, that first sale. It didn’t take long for everyone in RareHues on North Dale Mabry, just past Linebaugh to know they had something special. I was inside the door ...

Centenarian World Record

     There is a quote from Mark Twain that really describes the heart of the Suncoast Hospice Centenarian Celebration – “Wrinkles should merely indicate where the smiles have been.” If that is indeed so we had many happy lives well lived, enough for a Guinness World Record, perhaps?   ...

Too Soon?!

   The best thing about a trip? The anticipation! The worst? It has to be packing.  Just how much is too much and what exactly are you going to need? A little planning can go an awfully long way, especially when you’re far from home and just wish you would ...

An Amish Ann-Venture

   Silly me. I thought waiting to head back home to Ohio at the end of March meant the nasty weather would be over and done. Nope. But hey, it’s family and when you’re sitting inside and the rain has turned to sleet and then an insane amount of snow, ...

A Walk With A View

   For months as I drove across the Courtney Campbell Causeway I watched the construction of the new bridge adjacent to the Causeway and wondered just what it was. What it is is one of the most scenic sites for bikers and walkers. At the highest point you’re 45 feet ...

Could You Say No To This Face?

   There are many unsung heroes in Tampa Bay, but Ann-Ventures knows that many of them work for the Suncoast Animal League. Rick Chaboudy has devoted his life to caring for those who are this close to not having an owner that live in high-kill shelters, rescuing our friends with ...

I'm Ready For My Closeup

   I love the theater, especially musical theater. So when the Straz announced the 2014-2015 Broadway Season I was ecstatic. Andrew Lloyd Weber seems to be following in the footsteps of Les Miserable with reinvented staging and scenery with this "new" production. When you take an iconic music such as ...

Hug A Puppy, Take A Walk

   You see a visually impaired person with their guide dogs carefully crossing Kennedy Blvd, making their way to seat in Tropicana Field, or just enjoying a stroll along the Riverwalk. But have you wondered how they became each other’s best friends and where that partnership began? It begins on ...

Clearwater Beach Uncorked

      Looking for an Ann-Venture this weekend for the best of Clearwater Beach? For three years Clearwater Beach has been the place for food aficionado’s to run away for a deliciously decadent weekend of the best food in the bay, amazing craft beers and wines to make you ...

Swing Dancing And Dried Fruit

   The Saturday Morning Market in downtown St Pete is one of the best, if not THE best, and one of my favorite weekend Ann-Ventures. Their own mission statement says it so well: The mission of the market is to be the ‘heart’ of St. Petersburg - the place, more ...

Manatee Time

  So many manatees…and only so much room! Did you catch the story earlier this week about the closure of Three Sisters Spring in Crystal River? There is literally only enough room for the manatees in search of warmer waters so boaters, swimmer, kayakers, etc. are not allowed. But it’s ...
