The weather is incredible and there was no sign of the univited delegate named Hurricane Isaac. Convention events don't start until Sunday so we had a wonderful day settling in at the lovely Holiday Inn & Suites and exploring Clearwater and it's breath taking beaches.
A cute little welcome touch when we arrived at our hotel
Unfortunately that's not our hotel in the back ground but we all have the same beach access
A parade of patriotic dolphins welcomed us to Clearwater
Look what a few years of service for the GOP can land you...
