Thanks to everyone who shared their photos from weekend happenings in the Tampa Bay area. Take a look at 5 of my favorites:

Andrea Walker of South Tampa snapped these photos, above and below, at Saturday's Rays game against the Red Sox. Walker joined dozens of others who rode to the game on a charter bus provided by Big Mo's Sports Bar in Tampa.

Marcia Biggs of St. Petersburg shared these two photos, above and below, from the Great Tampa Bay Scallop Search held on Saturday off Fort De Soto Beach. The annual event organized by Tampa Bay Watch helps determine the health of the bay. About 150 volunteers went out on boats, then snorkled in shallow seagrass. Biggs said the search found a drastic reduction in scallops this year -- only 32 total, down from 674 last year.
