Clearwater Beach, Florida: Double Eagle III Deep Sea Fishing Boat

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Double Eagle III Deep Sea Fishing Boat
Clearwater Beach has a lot to offer, and deep sea fishing is one of them. I watched as the Double Eagle III came home and her fishermen gathered on the dock with their catches. I was not the only one to observe their return. The pelicans and seagulls seemed to know their schedule, and quickly gathered and prepared for a treat.

If you would like to experience deep sea fishing, but don't want to buy a boat, and all the gear, or you don't want to charter an expensive boat just for you and a few friends, this could be the way to go. That being said, there are also plenty of charter fishing boats that sail from Clearwater Beach. So if you have the budget and would like a more personalized deep sea fishing experience, you will find just what you are looking for.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Old Pier, Warm Sun, Man Reading Newspaper On Bench
When you want to relax and read your paper, I'm just not sure it can get much better than this. Blue sky, blue-green Gulf Of Mexico, warm breeze... even the calming sound of the gentle waves... all come together to feed the soul and quiet the mind. It is a beautiful thing. Come on down and check it out, you will be glad you did. There are plenty of hotels and motels and other such accommodations for you.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Municipal Marina: The Miss NanSea

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Municipal Marina: The Miss NanSea Powerboat
I like this boat, the Miss NanSea. It has character. Normally, I don't think of myself as old and stodgy, but when I see this boat, and think how it appeals to me, I worry that I am becoming just that! I know, we have to move aside and give the Brad Pitt's of the world a shot, eh? (Now I am laughing at myself so hard I may choke!)

But what can I say, this boat appears to be roomy, and practical (to the extent a boat can be), and the name strikes a chord in my heart. SOLD! No, not really. But I do enjoy a boating daydream from time to time. I would probably buy an old tugboat, if I could, and convert it to a live-aboard. {sigh}

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Municipal Marina: A Shifty Looking Crew

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach, Florida: Municipal Marina: Pelican Rail Crew
I caught this shifty looking crew hanging out on a boat at the Clearwater Municipal Marina. They wouldn't tell me who they crew for, and they would not give the name of the vessel. I rather suspect they were just flat-out loitering. But then, I was not going to call them on it... look at the size of those bills!

Now I will take the liberty of quoting the first limerick I ever learned:

A wonderful bird is the Pelican
His beak can hold more than his belly can
He can take in his beak,
Enough food for a week,
But I'm darned if I know how the helican!


I apologize most humbly as I do not know to whom credit should be given.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Pier 60 - The Business End

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach, Florida: Pier 60 Fishing Sightseeing Sunsets Birds
This is what you might call the BUSINESS END of Pier 60, on Clearwater Beach. This is where you can go fishing any time of day or night. That's right, just about 24/7! In fact, here are the hours, as listed on the website:
October 1st through March 31st: 6:00 am to 9:30 p.m.
April 1st through September 30th: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
Closed Christmas Day

So there you go... come on down this coming summer, and you can fish all day and all night on Pier 60. But take note: Pier 60 is also a great place to get close to a variety of birds that call Clearwater Beach home, like pelicans and seagulls. It is also a great place to get 'out on the water' in a way that you would need a boat for otherwise. Although the pictures did not come out worth posting, I saw dolphins and a stingray swimming right below the pier, while I was there recently.

Oh, and check out the horizon... it was one of those days when the water and the sky almost blended with each other at the horizon.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Gulf Coast Intracoastal Waterfront Is Your Backyard!

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach, Florida: Gulf Coast Intracoastal Waterfront Boating Boat Lift Backyard!
When you live on the north end of Clearwater Beach, you can have a backyard that looks like this, if you like. The homes I saw recently did, indeed, have nice backyards. At the backs of those yards, instead of a fence or a hedge, they have seawalls and docks, davits and boat lifts. It seems to me that this might be a nice way to live. If the water is in your BACKyard, can you still call it waterFRONT?

Can you imagine being able to walk out your back door, hop in your boat, and enjoy a long day of fun in the sun on the water? Yeah, I thought you could! I hope you enjoy the picture, and the daydream. :D (Click on the picture for a larger, more immersive view.)

Clearwater Beach, Florida: North Beach Motel

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach, Florida: North Beach Motel
The North Beach Motel is located, not surprisingly, on the North End of Clearwater Beach. It is a neat looking place, or so I thought, so I snapped this shot of the entrance to the pool area. If a person were to stay at this motel, they would be close to lots of fun places to see and eat. A few examples are Palm Pavilion Grill and Beach Bar, Frenchy's Rockaway Grill, Pier 60, Clearwater Beach Recreation Center, and much more.
