Wednesday March 29 - The Trip from Tampa to Miami

Bruce and Lee at the University of Tampa

We made several stops on the way to Miami from Tampa.  We drove slowly by baseball landmarks such as Raymond James Stadium, George Steinbrenner Field, and Al Lopez Park.  We stopped at the University of Tampa where Plant Field once stood.  Babe Ruth hit a ball for 587 feet which is his longest home run as noted below.

We left Tampa and stopped at a fruit store where we could buy native oranges.  Our next stop was at the Miromar Factory Outlet Mall located in Estero.  Lee and I just walked around and stopped for pizza.

We arrived at the hotel in Miami at about 7 PM.  We went across the street to the Bayside Marketplace Mall where we stopped to eat at Chili's.  Just after we finished eating it started to rain in buckets.  We stood under the roof for a while, but the Weather stated the rain would not stop for hours.  We had no other choice but to make a run across the street to our hotel.  We dried out and called it a day.
