The USS Independence was docked in Saint Petersburg, Florida over Labor Day weekend, and the Navy gave away a limited number of free tickets to tour the ship. Unfortunately, my husband and I both had to work on the day of the tours, but we still had a fun time viewing the USS Independence from shore. There were quite a few people ogling the ship while we were there, and a local news channel even filmed right next to us. You have no idea how badly we both wanted to jump behind the news woman and get in their shot. Many people wanted to set their sights upon the unique naval ship while it was docked in Saint Petersburg, Florida.
We wrapped up our viewing of the USS Independence with a visit to the restaurant at Albert Whitted Airport. Nothing like watching planes land and takeoff while eating some chicken wings and sipping on a cold adult beverage. My husband and I spent some time dreaming about owning our own airplane and how amazing it would be having the ability to fly into a small town and eat somewhere new for the day. Nothing like dreaming about the possibilities.

Come back tomorrow for more photos from downtown Saint Petersburg, Florida.
I'll be sharing some photos I took near the Dali Museum.
