Clearwater Beach: Florida Living At Its Finest: Like A Resort Vacation

Clearwater Beach: Florida Living At Its Finest: Like A Resort Vacation
I was heading onto the sand at Clearwater Beach last Friday when I noticed this beautiful scene of color. Set against the backdrop of white powdery sand and not-a-care-in-the-world blue sky, these beach cabanas shouted RESORT and VACATION and I AM DRIFTING IN A SEA OF RELAXATION. It made me want to go get some sort of tropical fruity umbrella drink and some resort clothes and chuck all my plans for the day.

Alas, I would not have gotten so many wonderful photos that day, had I succumbed to temptation. But fear not, you will get to see the many wonderful pictures of Clearwater Beach, and the Clearwater Municipal Marina, and much more, in the days and weeks ahead. And I will continue to take my 'time in the sun' here and there as it fits in my schedule.

So bookmark this page, and check back tomorrow for another great new picture of Clearwater Beach, Florida, and start making those travel plans!

  1. This looks like a scene from a 60s beach movie. I expect to see girls jump out from behind the cabanas in their oh so skimpy 196o bikini and sing a song about Chipper who is off surfing. Neat picture.
