Hey everyone! It’s Danielle Lanphere, one of the leaders on the Ruskin ABST! After a tiring travel day, we went to Hooks for dinner and had gator bites! We got settled in for the night, grocery shopped and planned out our exciting next day. Sunday was our fun day before our work week began. We started out with group breakfast at our apartment. Then we headed to The Florida Aquarium in Tampa. We got to touch jellyfish and stingrays and saw tons of cool animals. After spending a couple of hours there we went down to Madeira Beach to John’s Pass & Boardwalk. Here we got ice cream, walked around to all the little shops and enjoyed our time in the sunshine! We had dinner at The Boardwalk Grill and then made our way to the beach. The sand was extremely soft and there was almost no trash on the beach, which is very different from Erie. We watched the sunset while looking for shells and beach glass. After spending some time there we made our way home and got settled in for the night. We are going to have a very busy work day tomorrow!
