Soaring up to 192 feet above the water as we cross the Sunshine Skyway Bridge — the centerpiece of the 15-mile causeway that spans Tampa Bay — I wish I could stop and admire everything around us. Tampa Bay’s wide mouth is to our right. The blue-green expanse of the Gulf reaches out to our left. Conquistadors once sailed these waters. Now boats of all types and sizes cruise in all directions below us.
