Tierra Verde Florida – Last night we went to Tampa Bay Watch’s 2nd Pumpkins on the Porch. It was a wonderful evening overlooking the bay and we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful sunset or weather. Jennifer Silva, their Director of Development, said they were thrilled to have this opportunity to “give back to the Tampa Bay community” – and so appreciative of the community business and civic support to enable the evening to be FREE to everyone who came since sponsors donated all the goodies and fun.
We had pumpkins to carve, a live DJ, decorating apples on a stick with gooey carmel and sprinkles, face painting, games, movie, Dunkin Donuts, snow cones, pinata and the Lealman Fire Dept had all kinds of goodies from popcorn to reflective wristlets they gave the kids to use on Halloween. Who could believe we’d do so much in just 2 hours!!
If you don’t know about Tampa Bay Watch, you should.
Tampa Bay Watch, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit stewardship program dedicated exclusively to the protection and restoration of the marine and wetland environments of the Tampa Bay estuary through scientific and educational programs.
Here’s an article I wrote about them back in 2007 and they’re still doing amazing work for all of us today.
Now just because you missed out on this event, don’t worry they have another great event coming up on November 13th. It’s their 4th annual Evening for the Bay. We’ll be there and we’d love to see others committed to keeping our “bluest backyards” blue and healthy join us there. It’s from 6-10 pm all the event details are >> here <<
Hope you enjoy this really short video are some pictures I took of the fun we had – thanks again to all the fabulous sponsors.

So below is a short video I took wayyyy back in 2007 with a Tampa Bay Watch intern, Jessica, who was kind enough to share about many of the programs that www.TampaBayWatch.org is involved in. Check it out!!
You can support their efforts and I encourage you to get involved and volunteer personally as well as you can join Tampa Bay Watch and become a member for as little as $25 a year
So, hope to see you at Tampa Bay Watch in Tierra Verde on November 13th for an Evening for the Bay or out their at one of the volunteer events. If you’re there, look for the SandbarsToSunsets.com table – we’d love to meet you in person!!!
