Last Friday I headed north to explore the new Dali Museum and enjoy downtown St. Petersburg. Wow! An amazing city and I hope to spend more time discovering the area’s wonderful treasures soon. In addition to the Dali Museum I visited the Chihuly Exhibit (Holy, schmoly! Vibrant colored glass in varying shapes were beyond cool. Definitely a place to uplift the spirits), The Garden Restaurant and Paciugo Gelato. Enjoy these snapshots from my day trip to St. Petersburg.
