My mom and I went to visit my cousin Amin and his family in Tampa and then went on to see St.Petersburg. Then we drove up the gulf coast to Clearwater.

The little towns along the gulf coast had the fire hydrants painted in various colors. Each town had a different color for their hydrants. One of them had purple hydrants. I thought they looked beautiful so I had to stop and take a photo
