One of my ambitions this year was to visit the recently opened Dali Museum in St Petersburg, Florida but, along with many other plans, Covid19 has put this plan on hold.
So sometimes I just “wander” around the museum’s website – and dream. Recently I saw there was a new temporary exhibition called “At Home With Dali” so when Debbie Momberg and Lee Stratton AKA “Sisters Sell St Pete & Tampa Bay” at Smith & Associates in Tampa Bay told me all about 100 Beach Drive NE 1900 in St Petersburg I thought how nice it would be to be “At Home Near Dali” in this glorious apartment.
Debbie and Lee love their listing – and rightly so – and say:
