Gone to See Florida Road Trip. Day 11: St. Petersburg, Florida to Savannah, Georgia.
I waited until 10:00 to start to avoid rush hour traffic across the bridge and through Tampa. The heads up display shows the posted speed limits (and and car’s sensors supposedly also detects and reads speed limit signs). This is important when driving through the speed traps along US 301 (Starkey, Waldo, and Lawtey). Data from Landrover InControl: Drive time: 2:27 hours:minutes; Distance: 359 miles; Avg Speed: 57 mph; Fuel used: 11.2 gal; Avg Fuel Consumption: 31.1 mpg.
Fireworks from downtown St. Petersburg. I think the fireworks are shot off from a barge in Vinoy basin. We had to back off to a park near the pool along Tampa bay. Even then I was hit by the paper residue from one of the firework mortars. I set up two cameras to get pictures during the show. First a Nikon D850 camera with a 20 mm f/1.8 lens (ISO 64, 20 mm, f/11, 8 sec). The second a Fuji X-T3 camera and 8-16 mm f/2.8 lens (ISO 200, 10 mm, f/8, 8 sec).
Individual images from the slide shows can be viewed here.
