Clearwater Beach Florida - Sand Key Bridge

Happy December 1st! This is Bridge Theme Day. The bridge over Clearwater Pass, between Clearwater Beach and Sand Key is called, simply, Sand Key Bridge. I call it beautiful! Thank you Nikon D80!

On Sand Key you will find both condo towers and a very nice 95 acre Sand Key Park. On Clearwater Beach you will find... well, you will just have to check out my other posts here to see what Clearwater Beach is all about.

Clearwater Beach Florida - Waterfront View From Pier 60

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach Florida - Waterfront View From Pier 60Another view from Pier 60. I was standing in just about the same place. But this time I pointed the camera southeast instead of northeast. You can see some of the equipment that is being used in some of the major rebuilding underway. Clearwater Beach's older hotels are being replaced. Some with new hotels, many with condominiums.

And in case you are wondering, I took these night shots at the pier with my Nikon D80, on a tripod, with a wireless remote shutter release. Cool camera, that Nikon!

Clearwater Beach Florida - Waterfront View From Pier 60

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach Florida - Waterfront View From Pier 60This is what the waterfront on Clearwater Beach looks like from Pier 60, after sunset. Fantastic, is it not? The soothing sound of gentle waves, the shimmering reflection of the city lights. Talk about a place for romance! This is a great place to enjoy with someone you love. Come to Clearwater Beach and fall in love... with the beach, with each other!

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Google Earth Satellite Image Pier 60 WaterfrontClick the image above to enlarge it. This image is from Google Earth. Amazing software. In this satellite image, you can see Pier 60 on the left, jutting out into the Gulf Of Mexico. I took the top photo standing out near the building that sits about half way out to the end of the pier. The view in the photo is to the northeast, or upper right. And if you notice the giant fountain in the middle of the roundabout, I must report that it was such a distraction that it was blamed for car accidents, so they took it out. Bummer.

Clearwater Beach Florida - Sally Sells Seashells by the Seashore!

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach Florida - Sally Sells Seashells by the Seashore!But first she has to go down to the shore and find them! And what a lot of shells there are. So many varieties. There are many wonderful ways to relax in this world. 'Shelling' has got to be one of the best. It is so peaceful to walk the beach, gazing at the sand, stooping to explore a little closer when you spot something of interest.

Here I stop to check out some nice looking shells, among the bubbles of a receding wave. Not a high anxiety moment. Nothing to stress about. In fact, just looking at these shells you might be able to hear the gentle rustle of the waves as they lick at your toes.

Clearwater Beach Sunset - A Different Perspective

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach Sunset - A Different PerspectiveThis is what the sunset looks like if you are late getting to the beach! Yes, almost as beautiful, isn't it! I actually snapped this from the top of the Clearwater Memorial Causeway bridge when I was there taking pictures. They did a great job with this bridge, as it has pedestrian versions of scenic overlooks built into it. So you can walk over the bridge and 'pull over' to gaze at the wonderful views for a while.

Those tall buildings to the left of the sunset can also be seen in this picture, posted earlier. In future 'episodes' I will take you for a long walk at sunset, a stroll among the shops, and perhaps even an evening at the Sunset Festival. But I don't want to give it all away at once!

Clearwater Beach - Deep Sea Fishing

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach - Deep Sea FishingDo these people look happy to you?? Well they are! They are all excited to be aboard one of the deep sea fishing boats that operate out of Clearwater Beach. While snapping early one morning, from atop the Sand Key bridge, which spans Clearwater Pass, I watched two of these boats head out for the deep waters of the Gulf Of Mexico.

The first was the Double Eagle III, operated by Double Eagle Deep Sea Fishing. The second was the Super Queen, operated by Queen Fleet Deep Sea Fishing. There are numerous fishing charters, of all depths of water, operating in this area. It only takes a few minutes looking at a map of the area to see why!

Clearwater Beach Florida Hotels, Condos, Rentals, Sales

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach Florida Hotels, Condos, Rentals, SalesThis is the very southern end, or tip, of Clearwater Beach, Florida. Some of these buildings are condominiums, where you can buy a piece of paradise. Others are hotels that offer rooms right in the middle of the action. From these buildings, you are a short walk to many of the things that make Clearwater Beach so popular. Restaurants, gift shops, scooter rentals, miniature golf, beaches, harbor cruises, deep sea fishing cruises, dolphin cruises, beaches, and more. Oh, and did I say BEACHES???

After all, Clearwater Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! Even now, they are remodeling parts of the main road here to make it more accessible, and more enjoyable. And old hotels are being replaced by new condo developments. Soon, there will be many more opportunities for you to own a piece of this wonderful beach life!
