A North Beach Sunset – for me.

This one isn’t so much for you guys, and it’s not much to look at, or listen to…This one is for me. This one is so I can come back and look at this sunset from time to time, and remember it.

It’s the first sunset on the beach I’ve seen since I was a kid…

…glad you all could share it with me.

Exploring Fort Desoto – A Tour of the Fort!

After having toured the Fort DeSoto Pier (which was cold and windy, primarily) we’re now going to tour the Fort itself, which was established in the 1800’s to provide coastal defense of the Tampa area against a potential threat from Cuba. Never fired a shot in anger.

I’ll give you all fair warning – I didn’t cut very much from the video, since the fort itself is fairly small, but I did go exploring in just about every room. Sadly, since it’s an unattended public exhibit, it’s been mostly “sanitized” against vandalism, so there’s not a lot left beyond the bunker walls to give you a good feel for what the fort would have been like when it was active – what rooms were used for what purposes, etc.
