It's a Plane it's a Boat it's a Plaoat or Boaane???

OSB has moved from Gibsonton to Davis Island  Florida, here are a few pictures of things & people & stuff that go by my front yard everyday!!
Davis Island, Florida OSB’s new Home was built on two manmade islands atop two small natural islands known as "Little Grassy Key" and "Big Grassy Key" at the mouth of the Hillsborough River. The islands 875 acres were built up from mud dredged from the bottom of Tampa Bay in the 1920s and expanded. This dredge and fill operation was undertaken at the height of the Florida Land Boom by developer and Tampa native D. P. Davis.
There is an eclectic mix of architectural styles many of the original Mediterranean-style structures are still standing, and have received national Historic Designation, as well as local protections. Buildings of note include the Palace of Florence and Mirasol. Davis Island is a mix of residential and retail areas. The ”Strip” features many places to dine which will be reviewed soon as OSB gets settled in.
Davis Island is also home to Peter O. Knight Airport, Davis Island Yacht Club, and Tampa General Hospital. Also on the Islands are the Marjorie Park Municipal Yacht Basin & Marjorie Park on Columbia Drive and the Seaplane Basin & last but not least Beercan Beach OSB’s favorite high school Parking Spot!!

Nice! A little different it seems from your last views. I can only imagine you out there with the binoculars checking out those people on the cruise ships! You will need a good telephoto lens to capture the craziness of those Caribbean cruise passengers! LOL
