Default St. Pete part 2

Looking South to Tampa Bay.


Nice day to be sailing on the Bay.
St. Pete pier, St. Pete Yacht Club and Harborage Marina in the background.


Great shot on short approach.
Even better on departure after lunch but we did not get the shot.

I miss flying over those beaches. However we never had that much altitude. It was very rare for use to be over 500'. But that was in a HH60.

Thanks for the pics.

No, that's Clearwater, and I saw you fly over, taunting me. Why won't this **** fuselage build itself??

Vlad,
Thats the whole idea, right?
When we were boating I would hate to go to the marina basin and see the boats with a couple of months of bird sh-t all over them. You knew the owner wans't using the boat much.
I had a talk with our photographer about getting the required food picture on our trips. She looked at me funny but I told her it was for Vlad. Then she looked at me even funnier.

Chris,
Sorry I was typing faster than I was thinking. I know that Tarpon has no high rise condos and I am very familiar with the Clearwater Yacht Club in the picture. We used to do all the Offshore racing Regattas there.
If I had know you were watching we would have done a few motivational 360's for you.

I know that area pretty well, but I've never seen it from the air. Nice pics!

Cheryl and I sat many times at the end of that runway in a sailboat watching planes make low approaches over the water. We both knew where we wanted to be.

I guess if I am going to win the lottery soon I should start playing it.
If I had my druthers we would use the RV to fly to the sailboat located in the Bahamas on weekends. I guess as long as I am dreaming though I should retire.

Get back to riveting Michael.
