Day 158 – December 28

Some time ago we bought tickets for a Football game in Tampa. Unfortunately Bram was still not feeling too good, he still has a major headache, and stayed home.

footballSo we headed towards Tampa with the five us and I was the one driving. Game time was at 1.00PM but because it was a little chaotic around the stadium with cars and fans we did not make it to our seats until 1.30PM. And it was not because we did not leave the house in time, we had left at 10.30AM.

Our seats were all the way on top of the Raymond James Stadium, in a corner, where we were able to watch it real good and enjoy the sun as well. Awesome, the height and all those fans.

This is the famous pirate ship, with every touchdown that is scored by Tampa Bay Buccaneers it fires a canon ball and makes the entire stadium shiver.

At 3.30PM we left the stadium and walked back to the car, at about 5.30PM we were home again. Bram felt a little better and even watched some of the game on tv. It was another great experience to attend a great show in such a large stadium with another 65.000 fans.

Day 72 – October 3

Friday morning, what else than worship at St. Lukes. Every Friday we need to say a couple of prayers. A couple more weeks and we know them by heart 🙂

At McDonalds we got ourselves a nice cup of coffee and tea. With our laptop and iPad at hand we enjoyed the sun, and again we were the only ones outside because it was too hot. We however think it is so good so why not enjoy it while it lasts. Besides we know it is autumn in Holland.


After we left we headed for Restore. We had already passed this store a couple of times however we never stopped prior to today. It is comparable to Goodwills but here you will find more for construction. So if you want to improve your kitchen, bathroom, flooring you can find it here as well as all the tools you need in order to get it done. Also couches and tables can be found here. We did also find something smaller, something you would not expect here when we just told you what is sold here, for Camy but we will tell you about this later.


At about 3.00PM we went to school to pick Camy up.
At the school entrance they have this sign, and yes 98F/34C, pfff what you mean hot.

When school was out we immediately drove towards Tampa because the 1-D concert was given at Raymond James Stadium, it is where Tampa Bay Buccaneers plays its home games for the NFL, for some 70.000 screaming teen aged girls.
