Clearwater, Florida: Municipal Marina: Sailboat For Sale

Clearwater, Florida: Clearwater Municipal Marina: Sailboat For Sale
It's a fine, beautiful sailboat for sale here. Or is it 'for sail'? :D According to the sign, this is a 1997 Beneteau, 40', for sale. Also, the sign says the boat is worth US$125,000. They are asking US$115,000. It seems like a really nice looking boat, but I don't have a budget like that for a yacht... sailing, motor, or otherwise.

I have had the occasion to sail on similar boats once or twice in my life. It is a wonderful thing to glide across the water with just the wind to move you. Ah well...

*Here is a question for you... What about the Natural Pet Food discussion? I know you can get cat food and dog food that ranges from super cheap at 25 cents a can, on up to all natural pet food that costs over two bucks for a small can. I always figured that the food sold in Pet Stores was just overpriced. But what about All Natural Pet Food? What do you feed your pets? (Please leave a comment if you are so inclined.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: City Daily Photo Theme Day!

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach, Florida: Beach, Sand, Waves, Sunbathing, Bikini, Pier 60, Vacation
Welcome to Theme Day in the City Daily Photo Community! Today is February 1st, and the theme is "What Your City Is Known For". Well, I have to admit, for me, and for my Clearwater Beach Daily Photo blog, this is a no-brainer! We are totally, completely, undeniably, indisputably, everlastingly known for our... BEACH! And everything that makes a beach a beach, and makes our beach an AWESOME beach!

Let me just review a small sampling... Sand, fine, white, powdery sand. Water, warm, bluish green, Gulf Of Mexico water. Waves, softly swishing, gently lapping, rhythmic, hypnotic waves. Sun, delightful, shiny, warm, cozy, dazzling, consistent, cheerful sun. People, women, children, men, bikinis, trunks, t-shirts, tanning lotion, shades-wearing, vacationing, on-holiday, swimming, walking, shelling, sleeping, sunning, tanning, playing, happy people.

And I quote: "I could do this all day."

There are over 130 blogs participating in Theme Day today. Please take a moment to check out the list below. Click on any name to take an armchair tour of that city. Have a great time!

Clearwater Beach, Florida: ... Is For Lovers!

Clearwater Beach, Florida: ... Is For Lovers!
I think I know how they feel. That's how I feel when I walk on the beach with my significant other. What a great feeling. I don't know what it is about the beach, or the sun or the sand... maybe the sound of the waves and the salt air... but if you come to the beach with your significant other, don't be surprised to find yourself falling in love all over again.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Sunny Warm Winter Weather

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach, Florida: Sunny Warm Winter Weather
It was just about a week ago when I was enjoying a leisurely stroll on Clearwater Beach. I had parked near the South End of the beach that day, and was heading north toward Pier 60. It was a pretty low tide, and a bit of a breeze. All in all, another beautiful day on Clearwater Beach.

Take a close look, blur your eyes just a little bit, and you can see yourself there in the photograph, walking along, soaking up the sun, delighting in the bright winter sunlight. Marvelous!

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Beach Lifeguard Station: Yellow Flag!

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach, Florida: Beach Lifeguard Station: Yellow Flag!
Do you remember this one: "Danger Will Robinson! Danger Will Robinson!" Or at least, that's how I remember it. Do you? Well, I was having a nice walk on Clearwater Beach last Monday when I saw this lifeguard station with the yellow flag flying. I thought it must have some specific meaning, and yellow did not seem like an 'all is well' kind of color. So I had decided to walk over and ask about it.

Well, I did not get quite there when another lifeguard arrives in this cool looking little four-wheeler. Neato! It's a Kawasaki Mule. Yup, they are the coolest utility vehicles for off road, around the ranch, etc. I have seen some in Dunedin (Florida) decked out in the local sheriff's colors. Very cool. Click here if you want to check out the Kawasaki website where they tell all about their Mule models.

Meanwhile, back to the yellow flag. As you can guess, which I did, the yellow flag is a warning flag. Specifically, the lifeguard on duty told me it means that it is windy (this is obvious) and that there are strong tides to be aware of (not so obvious). Cool. Now, in an effort to bring you the most up to date information... I have found a website about Florida's statewide flag system, used on our beaches. This is good to know information. It goes like this:

Green Flag: Calm conditions, exercise caution.

Yellow Flag: Moderate surf and/or currents.

Purple Flag: Dangerous marine life.

Red Flag: High surf and/or strong currents.

Red Flag with line crossing out swimmer: Water closed to public.

So please, enjoy the beach, but make your visit a safe one, by paying attention to the flags.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: What We Drive? Serious Construction Machinery!

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach, Florida: What We Drive? Serious Construction Machinery!
This is the Lull 944E-42 Telehandler. Yeah, drive that home tonight! Talk about a handy piece of machinery to have around the house! This orange monster can handle 6,000 pounds at its maximum lift height of 42 feet. That is SERIOUS!

Did I mention that they are doing some construction out on Clearwater Beach? Yes, I'm sure I did. Click here if you want to refresh your memory about the Billion Dollar Beach project and website. What was cool is that this guy spotted me taking his picture and waved. I like people like that, they make life fun. He deserves a 'You Make My Day' award. (Like the one I received for my Dunedin Daily Photo blog.)

By the way, right about now some of you are thinking... Hmmm, maybe I wanna get me one of them! Well, you can find an '06 model with just 179 hours on it, in Belton, MO, for a mere US$ 85,000. Or, if your budget looks anything like mine, you may want to consider this one I found on eBay for less than a hundred bucks. Click here to see the eBay listing if you like.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Warm Sunny Winter On Pier 60
It's January. It's winter. This is Pier 60, on Clearwater Beach, in Florida. It's also warm, and sunny, and bright... SWEET!

And in the distance, beyond the end of the pier, the Gulf of Mexico stretches out into the distance. On and on and on... to Mexico. Nice, isn't it?
