OUR BEAUTIFUL CITY

My cousin Gehrig, me, and Shane. Agustin wanted to portray his artsy side and lie on the grass to take this shot of us in front of the skyscraper. I always enjoy visiting our downtown area! I tend to forget that we are privileged to live in such a beautiful city!
All photos can be enlarged by clicking on them.

Some of the officers around the park. Loved the fact they employed the horses as well.

A few of the "right wing extremist idiots" that the MSM seemed occupied about, mixed in with their dirty sexual innuendos!


Still shot of my hubby being interviewed for Univision. Notice the Cuban cigar hanging out of the cameraman's mouth. Very Tampanian!



More crazy right wing extremists! LOL

These two ladies and I hit it off! The one in denim gave me a tea bag to hang from my flag.



The pretty park in downtown Tampa where the Tea Party was held.


There were tables set up inside the park, allowing you to make your own signs. They knew many protesters would be coming to the tea party directly from work.

I can just imagine what MS*NBC's Ra*chel Mad*ow (MadCow) would say about this!



Leaving downtown, we passed the University of Tampa. This once was a hotel in which Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders stayed in before deploying to Cuba.

oops! We were in the car, leaving and I really thought I was getting a shot of the entire horse! My bad!



As we first approached the Tea Party a little before noon. The park continued to fill
up after we arrived.

This beautiful church, nestled in by a parking garage just begged for me to take it's picture!


Please be sure to scroll back up and stop the music player before watching this video. Clip is only about 15 seconds long. I plan on showing a video clip or two each day so my political junkie sister can get a taste of what the rally was like. She was deterred from attending a Tea Party yesterday due to the fact she lives in South America! Please bear with us!

Tampa really is a beautiful city.

I'm excited for the Tea Party that happened there.

I found your blog from Tickleberry farm. I live in Tampa too. Up north, off 54 and 75. I wanted so badly to visit the tea parties in Tampa yesterday. Thanks for the pictures.

Kind regards,
