Saturday Snapshot~April 19

Here it is the Saturday before Easter already! This year has moved along quickly.  I’m here, joining in with Saturday Snapshot and I have a beautiful one (or two) from my trip to Florida at the end of March.  Be sure to check out all of the other photos that everyone is sharing at West Metro Mommy Reads, hostessed by the lovely Melinda.


While I was in Florida, we took a trip to the Thai Buddhist Temple in Tampa.  It’s a beautiful place and very popular for the food market that occurs there on Sundays.


It was hard to get a shot of it without people around. Also the sun was so bright, I was never really sure how the photos would come out.

As part of the market, they were selling orchids.  There were so many beautiful colors.  I took quite a few photos, but again, I wasn’t sure what I had gotten until we were back in the car.  This is one of my favorites.


The colors were just amazing.  If you ever have the opportunity to visit the Tampa/Clearwater area, be sure to make a Sunday visit to the Temple.

Don’t forget to check out all of the photos over at West Metro Mommy Reads.  Have a great day and Happy Easter!

Happy Saturday!

  5. Not only is the market amazing, but they also sell food there too!! Talk about a win in my book. I love the orchid shot; they’re such pretty and fragile flowers.

  6. I’ve been to Tampa/St. Pete quite a few times, but I’ve never seen the Buddhist temple. Thank you for sharing your lovely photos. I hope you had time to eat at the Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City while you were there. Their arroz con pollo and fried plantains are not to be missed!

    I’ve been away from Saturday Snapshot for a while. I’d love for you to stop by my post.

  13. I had no idea that they had a Buddhist temple in Tampa. The orchids look great too. They would be great to grow here but I think the cold weather we had would have killed them long ago.

  14. Hi Fran! I’ve been so away from blogs that it makes me sad. Seems it’s been awhile for you too. Hope we’re both settled and blogging again in 2015!
