Clearwater Beach, Florida: Sun, Sand, Water, Christmas Vacation

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Sun, Sand, Water, Christmas Vacation [enlarge]
As I look at this little example of beach photography, taken on Clearwater Beach, it seems like all the lines are pointing to one thing... Your vacation place in the Florida sun! Yeah, it's kind of hard to make out from here... so I took a closer picture for you. Come back tomorrow and you can see it up close.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Frenchy's Cafe - The Original!

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Frenchy's Cafe - The Original! Grouper Sandwich, Dining
Let me just put it this way... if you come to Clearwater Beach, or even just close, you MUST, MUST, MUST stop by Frenchy's and order a grouper sandwich!!! They are DELICIOUS! Now, which Frenchy's you visit is up to you, there are four different locations to choose from on Clearwater Beach. Click here for their main website. Click here for the page about the Original Cafe, shown in the photo above.

Before I forget, you also MUST try their smoked fish spread. Yummy! I am getting hungry just thinking about this food. If you like a small quiet atmosphere, try this one, the Original Cafe. If you like bigger venues, with lots of bar space, and outdoor patio where you can watch the sunset, and live music, then check out the Rockaway Grill. After that, try the other two! :D

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Municipal Marina: Sightseeing Motor Vessel Little Toot

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Municipal Marina: Sightseeing Motor Vessel Little Toot
Yesterday's photograph of the Lady Katie has put me in the mood to post this other picture of Little Toot. Again, exploring my photography skills while at the Clearwater Beach Municipal Marina, I just happened to be at the end of the dock when the Little Toot was being moved over to the fueling dock. What a great opportunity for a good shot.

There I was, on the end of the dock, watching them glide past while I snapped away. I have posted a picture of Little Toot before. Click here for that post, which has a link to the Little Toot Dolphin Cruise & Sightseeing Tours website.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Municipal Marina: Motor Vessel Lady Katie

Motor Vessel Katie, Clearwater Beach, Florida, Clearwater Municipal Marina
I have a confession to make... I don't know a darn thing about this boat. But it sure looks good! Yeah, I saw it, I liked it, I snapped it. Simple as that. I don't really think this is the type of boat you find around here a whole lot. Maybe that is why I like it. Or maybe it's just the look of it.

But I really like it, and I thought you might enjoy taking a look at her. What a neat name for a boat, Lady Katie. What do you think, Kate? By the way, if you would like to know, the script under the window say Capt. "Wild Bill".

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Christmas Decorations: Outback Steakhouse

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Outback Steakhouse Christmas Decorations
I caught these Elves decking the... Outback Steakhouse Patio, recently, and wanted to revisit that Christmas spirit now that the temperatures have dipped (47F outside right now). With all the palm trees and resort apparel on Clearwater Beach, it can be hard to feel like Christmas sometimes. I think Santa Claus changes into shorts and flip-flops when he gets to this area! Hmm, what kind of flip-flops would Santa wear?

Next mission: Venture forth after sunset to get some more Christmas decorations for your viewing pleasure. Of course, any pictures like that must be interspersed with plenty of "Sunshine Photography"! (Oh, can you spot the cyclist in this picture?)

Clearwater Beach, Florida - What We Drive - Ferrari!

Clearwater Beach Florida, Ferrari, Marina
Joining in with our cross-blog "What We Drive" series. Or in this case... what They drive. :D This sweet Ferrari was waiting for its owner at the Clearwater Beach Municipal Marina. There were plenty of fine vessels in the marina that could be related to this Ferrari. As near as I can tell, the model is a 348. But I don't know anything more than that about this one.

What I can tell you is this... If you have the wherewithal, Clearwater Beach is a fine place to drive your Ferrari. Drop the top and roll, baby, roll.

On the Ferrari website, amongst all those beautiful machines, you can find similar 348's selling, used, for $50,000 and up. In case you are so inclined.
