Actually, this is between the Port of Manatee and the county jail. Legend has it that pirates used this for launching raids on either. And a little known historical fact; Captain Morgan stored his gold here before retiring to start a rum business. He's not a bad chap once you get to know him as I do.
I was thinking of about mounting a raid to claim Eric Island for myself. I plan to turn it into a tax-free haven to rival the Camen Islands. As well, it will become a hub for cryptocurrency mining on account of the free water for cooling. I am full of all kinds of ideas. This and Florida swampland are the next big things.
This bridge is a commuter's nightmare, but before dawn on the weekend, it can look pretty awesome.
It's amazing how smooth the water looks in a long exposure. I could shoot these all morning if the sun didn't rise. But, as the saying goes, the son also rises. Actually, that saying doesn't apply, and I'm mixing metaphors, but we're all friends here.
They say this bridge needs to be replaced. It's over fifty years old and, as I mentioned, the traffic on it sucks. But, there is a bright side. Getting stuck on a bridge in Florida is not so bad; you just roll down the window, crank up the tunes, and enjoy the scenery.
