A Discovery

About 8 miles away and only 15 minutes is a bridge called Courtney Campbell and takes you from Clearwater to Tampa.  Right next to the roadway is a bike path, walking and jogging  bridge.   There are 2 man-made islets connected by a bridge.  This 10 mile causeway was once the longest of its kind in the US.  It was started in 1922 and completed in 1937.  

In this Google picture, you can clearly see the roadway and the bike path/walkway next to it. 

You can park in the gravel area or on the other side in the grass, then walk over and take a leisurely stroll across.  Of course that will take you to Tampa, so no need to walk too far.

I decided this might be a great place to take some pictures.  You can either take sunrise or sunset here since both horizons are in view.  

And that is exactly what I did.  These pictures are a sunrise I took just a couple weeks ago.  This place will be great, I think, for the  upcoming Perseid's meteor shower,  as light will be somewhat mitigated because of the water.  

We'll see.
