When my sister and I were youngsters, our parents made the choice to sell the cabin and move to Tampa Bay.
My mom’s sibling already lived in Tampa Bay, and she got our Dad a go along with her.
My dad already wanted to live in FL, because he grew up on the Gulf waters! When our Dad got a job toiling in Tampa Bay, our dad took it as some sort of sign. My sister and I were absolutely furious, because we were in school at the time. My parents did not care that we would be entirely miserable for the last few years of school! They made the choice to move to Tampa Bay, FL, separate from even talking to my sister and I first. We did not have any choice in the matter. As soon as my sister graduated from school, she made the choice to move right back home. She was able to find a condo with one of her friends, and she started toiling at the stone factory. My parents wanted my sister to stay in Tampa Bay, and they weren’t excited to see her leave like that. My sister has been gone for a couple of years now, and she does not visit much anymore! I think it’s expensive to travel all the way to Tampa Bay, FL, but I have even offered to pay for the plane ticket… Now that I have been here for a few years, Tampa Bay is starting to grow on me. I couldn’t actually imagine living somewhere else. I adore the ocean and the bay, and I even started going to see some of the springs around here recently. There is so much to see and do in Tampa. I miss my sister a great deal, and I wish she would come back here with all of us.
