East View

I'm standing on the pier at Fort DeSoto Park in St Petersburg looking east at the Sunshine Skyway Bridge on a Sunday afternoon. Thats the bait shop on the right where you can get a few items while you fish on the pier or wait for the ferry. The pier a fun place to check out when you come here to spend the day on the miles of beaches.

They also have a campground not too far from this spot as well. I'm born and raised in California so I'm not sure what its like to camp near the beach in Florida. When I think camping I think of mountains, lakes and streams. Wouldn't it would be too warm for a sleeping bag? I think my three season bag would be uncomfortably hot. Maybe just a light blanket is all I'd need. The more I think about it the more I think I should try. Who knows, I might like it.

I just noticed that you can see the whole length of the main span of the Skyway from here. In total it's about ten miles across the bay, here we see about five miles of it.

Anyway, now I can't stop thinking about that camping idea. I think I'm going to try it out. I'll let you know how it turns out.
