WATERY Wednesday #59

Tucked in on the Tampa side of the Howard Franklin Bridge over Old Tampa Bay, south of the bridge and interstate, is an area that for many years was the Tampa Bay Marina. Many folks have fond (OK, not all fond) memories of coming in and out of the docks there at all hours of the day and night. The marina itself is long gone and was replaced by streets, office complexes, homes and parking lots and garages. But in between and behind some of the buildings, and still surrounding the homes going out on the finger called Mariner Drive are canals (and even a nice size bayou.) One canal has rows of sailboats and a few powerboats at dock and up on davits behind homes. It can't get more "watery" then this scene.

I agree. A nice relaxed atmosphere to this shot. I wouldn't mind stepping into one of those boats and taking a cruise.

Such a beautiful scene Frank! Thank you very much for the kind words and welcome! I do appreciate all submissions to the blog. Every photographer from novice to pro has captured a flower of some sort. Whats the point in taking the picture if you don't share it? Again thanks for the great big welcome to your fantastic Tampa Daily Photo Blog.

@ Nobu - Yes, after a couple of days of cooler weather, it's back to high temps. They forecast we will break heat records with a 90-degree high today and high 80s through the rest of the week.

@ MagicPolaroid - Thanks. I will check out the Horizon. Very interesting affects.
