Florida !!! The Lost Frontier ???

I continued East on Highway 10 and experienced a continuous series of elevated highways that are only ten to twenty feet above the water. They went on for at least twenty kilometres. What is very apparent in this area is that water rules as it is everywhere. It is now very clear to me how easy it was for the rising water can cause so much damage, especially combined with high winds.
The beached along the coast were marvellous. They are the whitest sand and go on for miles, and there were no people on them. There were also many shrimp boats that seemed to be very busy.
It was back through Alabama, then finally into Florida. I always wanted the free glass of orange juice and Karen, the lady at the Welcome Center made sure I was taken care of, took my picture and helped me reserve a room for the night. She was a terrific lady who couldn't do enough.
As I approached another long bridge, I came across the sign to make sure you had enough fuel. I expected it to go on for ever, but it was only a couple of kilometres
I passed though a very interesting beach area and was fascinated by the "space house".
I ended the day in Destin at another Motel 6,and went for dinner at a Fisherman's Wharf.
