Boats and Birds are rocking on Old Tampa Bay

The holiday weekend in Florida may include a brief sun-shower or light rain here and there, but today was gloriously bright and sunny and the beaches and parks were full of family and friends enjoying being together. I'm not certain what make of boat this is - it was probably doing 40 knots or so when it passed me - but these birds weren't taking any chances as it approached me and them lazying on the beach at Picnic Island and the waters of Old Tampa Bay. They all took flight at the same moment. So far, the long weekend could not be more beautiful or relaxing. (And I was not at anytime doing anywhere near that boat's speed on this day!)


  1. Beautiful boat! I figured you probably owned one of these yourself.

    A really nice action shot, Frank. Love the seagulls taking flight out of fright!

    Sounds like you're having a rather nice time. I don't think I need to tell you to slow down!

  2. Beautiful shot !! I would love to ride the boat..Unseen Rajasthan

  3. Nice! Those gulls posed for me once. Nice birds.
