Preparing for Takeoff Again

Preparing for takeoff, originally uploaded by zuctronic

Another trip away from the hustle and bustle of the Windy City! On April 7th, I flew out of Chicago's O'Hare International Airport to Tampa International Airport. The flight was about 2 hours and 15 minutes and after landing I made my way to the Budget Rental car desk to pick up my reservation. It was a red Toyota Yaris with a GPS unit to help me get around the unfamiliar territory. The drive from Tampa to Bradenton was about an hour.

On the way to Bradenton I stopped at a convenience store for some beer, chips, and salsa. I asked if I could buy beer there, thinking maybe they stopped selling after 9pm (it was midnight) and the clerk said, "you can if you've got ID and money!"

I woke up early the next morning with a pounding headache that I sometimes get after flying. I ran to CVS and picked up some advil and was feeling alright by 9am. I had all day Wednesday free, so I decided to venture out and see what the Sarasota area had to offer.
