SkyWatch FRIDAY


After the heavy rains and flooding we have had in the Tampa Bay area over the past couple of days, I am actually surprised to see it dry. Except for the darkening and threatening clouds overhead, and black in some places, we have not seen a drop today...yet. This scene is of the small prams and rowboats tied to the dock at the boat ramp. They are left here and only used by the sailors to get to and from their boats that are tied up in the basin. At the moment the water is calm and the boats are playing the lonely game of bobbing along at the dock until an owner decides to going out and sail. Before this 4th of July weekend is over I'm sure the sails on several of these boats will fill with wind. Do visit Skywatch Friday to see the beauty and wonders of the world's most magnificent skies.

Frank, thanks very much for the kind words you left over at my place. I'll be stopping by over here every time I'm feeling a little parched. It's so refreshing to see a body of water larger than a stock tank.

The big question: Where has all this water gone, and will it be available during the droughts of August? Great view.

That photo gives you the impression that it could change on you at any moment. Beautiful though. Happy 4th Frank.

Great image: this sky is a bit scary and I think is right to keep a watch on it.
Happy 4th of July!
