Back on the road and we drove past Alligator Alley and then stopped to see if we could see any gators. This fulla turned up. I think he was a bit of a show pony because he just wanted to hang and get his photo taken.

We got back in the car and crossed the 'Bob Graham Sunshine Skyway Bridge'. I think they like long names here?  My personal favourite at home on the way to ChCh is 'Bridge No Name' but anyway, sorry I'm getting off track here.  We then drove onto the North Skyway Fishing Pier.  As per usual I'm like a kid in a candy shop with all the birds to take photos of.  It was pretty hot here, so we continued on our way.

US Laughing gulls!  US seagulls say "Har Har, you've got chips bro!"  NZ seagulls scream “Gizz us ya fucken chups bru, nowwww” and then dive bomb and try and crap on you.

We arrived at Treasure Island later in the afternoon.  ZOMG!  So cuuuuute!  Check out our Motel.  Kathy thought it was tacky.  I also broke the toilet again here.  I forgot to mention I broke the one in Washington as well.  Kathy and I are getting pretty good at fixing toilets.  I'll start my apprenticeship when I get home?

There was a pool and then a pier out the back.  We spotted some Manatees but they never surfaced long enough to get a good shot.

They like bridges here.  Unlike NZ.  NZ - You want to get to that other peninsula that is 1km away?  No probs, we’ll build a 25km long windy road.
