@Wildfyre - those are epic!
By the way, I totally forgot to tell the story of Wallace's last-minute adventure before he went home. I realized he had never made it to the beach during his stay and he was set to head back in like two days, so we were in Clearwater running errands and I thought, we'll just pop over to the beach. It's only like 20 minutes or so from where we were vs over an hour from our home by the time you factor in traffic.
Well...we got on the bridge heading to Clearwater Beach and....ran smack into a traffic jam. And with water on both sides it's not like I could turn around! We wound up stuck, rolling an inch or two at a time for an hour. The entire visible span in this pic is bumper-to-bumper cars:

We were at a total standstill at the sign which is why I was able to take a pic despite being the driver! LOL
After we FINALLY made it through the congestion of Clearwater Beach, we turned and headed south to Sand Key which is another bridge over (and thankfully, MUCH less busy!!)
Ironically, it was FREEZING that day with a ton of wind so I had my hoodie zipped up.
But I wanted to make sure he did get to at least experience our world-famous beaches...
And that's the story of Wallace's final Florida adventure.
