The Pier at St. Petersburg

There were lots of places to go shopping. When we first got to our condo, we heard of an amazing place to check out. It's called John's Pass Pier. With it being only 1/2 mile away, we took off. There was tons of shopping, (mainly touristy stuff), restaraunts, and the pier itself was amazing. We saw dolphins jumping out of water immediately and felt as though we had finally arrived. Another great pier that we visited was in St. Petersburg. Their pier was also fun. It had an aquarium on the second floor and it was a minimal cost. We hopped on the chance that it might be fun and we are glad we did. This aquarium was especially neat because it had a touch and feel section. The kids got to hold crabs, starfish, and sea urchins. We saw an eel, some sharks, and an especially beautiful fish called a Picasso fish (?) It was very colorful and although I didn't get a pic of it, definitely look it up online... it's worth seeing!
