We moved from Wauchula to Largo today. A scenic, short (two hour) trip - lush and green. Crossing Tampa Bay from the south on I-275 took us over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. The view is great. There was some fog in the air but the scenery was beautiful. We can't say that it is a better view than over the Mackinaw Bridge but then what is? There were many boats, both pleasure and fishing, throughout. There is a long pier that can be driven out on that was full of vehicles and people fishing. Some had driven RVs out there so that they could fish and relax in comfort. We had never seen such a "drive on" pier before. We are in Vacation Village, an old RV park. The sites are fully wooded and loaded with leaves. There is a mostly dry stream passing through (a sign of the drought). The temperature is 84 degrees and the humidity is low. A radio report stated that the humidity is to remain low for the next few days. That is surely OK with us.
