Pinellas County, Florida USA

Pinellas County, on Florida’s West Coast, is a 280-square mile peninsula bordered by the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay. The County from tip to tip is 38 miles long and 15 miles wide at its broadest point. The name Pinellas is derived from the Spanish words Punta Pinal meaning "point of pines." That was an accurate description of this area when it was discovered by Panfilo de Narvaez in 1528; 36 years after Columbus arrived in the Caribbean and 37 years before the founding of St. Augustine. Narvaez and 400 soldiers, probably were the first Europeans in this area, primarily came looking for gold and silver. The earl inhabitants of Pinellas were Native Americans and many large Indian shell mounds have been found throughout the County.

Born at the Bayfront Medical Center, formerly Mound Park Hospital, Rebecca is a rare FLORIDA NATIVE, so she knows the area very well.  She has either visited or lived in all areas of the county.  As a young child, she resided in the Largo area Bardmoor until she was 11 years old then moved to Pinellas Park, the heart of Pinellas county.  Since then she's lived in St Petersburg, both North, Northeast, and South, & Clearwater, and has recently relocated to Palm Harbor.
