By Len Berman On a perfect Florida Sunday afternoon a large contingent from the Tampa Bay Section enjoyed the soft gulf breeze at historic Spanish Point. Lead by excellent docents as guides, walking and tram tours explored the waterside scenery, pioneer buildings and museum while we learned about the early settlement of the area just south of Tampa Bay. Coveringboth early indigenous and later European-American periods, we gained an appreciationfor the development of a significant part of our part of Florida. Of course the event was capped off by the obligatory meal, an eclectic late lunch at Square One nearby, leaving us well informed and well fed.
