This is actually the view I had from my first abode when I moved out here in 1989. There was an old Day’s Inn, on it’s last legs, and I lived there for 2 months until we got the house in DC sold and the family moved out. They original hotel is long gone, there’s a smaller Comfort Inn there now.

We were looking at an opportunity recently, that would've involved relocating to the Tampa/St. Pete area. It didn't work out, but was an interesting experience. Not a bad place for a sunset, though....

The interesting thing is that our vehicle, a Chrysler mini-van, was hit by a Lexus SUV, and their front bumper compeletely cleared our back bumper. All of the impact was on the rear gate, which is now crumpled. It is firghtening to imagine the damage if the lady had been going 20mph, instead of just starting. Or if she had hit some kid in one of those micro cars?... Now I'm no SUV hater, or anything, but this certainly raises an interesting issue about non-uniform bumper height. It would be nice if bumpers could act as designed, as impact absorbing devices......
Just my thought for the day.
