Evening brings quiet to the waterfront

The Tampa Riverwalk beckons bikers, hikers and folks out for a quiet evening stroll through Contanchobee Fort Brooke Park. The dock juts out into Garrison Channel and closes the distance to Harbour Island and some very fine restaurants. That's Amore is on the left side of the circle - the palms encirled with the festive lights mark the circle - and over the bow of the boat on the right side is Cafe Dufrain. I recommend them both and yes, you could tie your boat up and have dinner inside or outside on their patios. After, enjoy coffee and desert while watching the lights of Tampa's skyline. Tonight was especially quiet on the water and the Riverwalk was very inviting.

I've always liked the idea of boating to dinner. It seems like a neat thing to do.

The sky looks pretty clear too. What a nice place to enjoy the evening.

Great shot... I don't care for Florida as far as a place to live, but I do love the colors of Florida... Lovely!
