Tampa Bay Sunrise

Cindy and I headed back for North Georgia before sunrise on Friday, Dec 23, so we could be back for Christmas Eve with our daughter’s family.  One of the targets for the departure time was a hope that we’d make it to the rest area on the Sunshine Skyway for sunrise.  It was worth the early hour.  As the sun rose it gleamed off of the tall buildings of Tampa across the bay.

There were fishermen pulling their boats across the mud flats to reach the bay water at low tide as the sun was rising, which made for some picturesque opportunities.

After enjoying the sunrise, we headed out to cross the Sunshine Skyway Bridge for our 600+ mile journey north.
