Clearwater Beach, Florida: Warm Sunny Beach Fix

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Warm Sunny Beach Fix
Enjoying a little warm sand underfoot recently, on Clearwater Beach. I thought I would share this photo, as I know there are places in the country not quite getting the same kind of weather. It was actually somewhat chilly this day, and so the warm sand was not as warm as one would have liked!

Even though it is winter, there are many, many people who find that Clearwater Beach is still beautiful, and sunny, and to many who live in cooler climes, warm! On the off chance that you are enjoying the seemingly endless sky in the picture above, you can click here if you have a big monitor and would like to enjoy a much larger image (1800px wide). And too, if you just want to see more detail, scrolling back and forth to take it all in, then go for it!

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Serious Fishing Boats!

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Serious Fishing Boats!
I have always loved the look and the lines of boats like these. No, these are not the biggest, most luxurious examples I have ever seen. But they just plain look good, waiting there... for us... to Escape on, over the shiny blue-green waters of Clearwater Harbor, or the Gulf of Mexico. Ah yes, sitting in the bowsprit dangling legs, the salt spray in our faces, the sun shining down and warming us right to our bones. WONDERFUL!

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Pier 60 Sunny Beach Low Tide

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Pier 60 Sunny Beach Low Tide
There is no way to get around it... this is why people love Clearwater Beach, Florida. Even in winter, the beach is beautiful. The likelihood of snow falling here is just about zero, zilch, nada. Meanwhile, you always have a good chance of enjoying the warm, sunny, sandy beach while you wander along watching the waves and the seagulls. Later, at Pier 60, you can get right out over the Gulf of Mexico waters and look for dolphins, do a little fishing, or just enjoy all the pelicans hanging out. If you get hungry, there is a cafe at the land side of the pier, and plenty of restaurants nearby.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: What We Don't? Drive: Cement Trucks

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach, Florida: What We Drive: Cement Trucks Construction Concrete
What was that about construction? This is a good picture of what we DON'T drive! At least, what MOST OF US don't drive. I just happened to catch, barely, this ironic and telling image of the two trucks crossing paths, one headed toward the construction sites, full of concrete I am sure, and the other headed back, empty, for a refill. Hat's off to Florida Rock Industries, Inc.

Let me just say this, it has to be a real pain in the but to drive those things out there on Clearwater Beach. With the traffic, and lots of people who are not used to having vehicles that big on the road with them, it seems like a real hazard.

What are they working on? My best guess is the Billion Dollar Beach or Beach Walk projects. Yowza! It seems so strange to me the contrast of cement truck to palm trees.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Beach Walk Construction Paint Job

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach, Florida: Beach Walk Construction Paint Job
I guess even a Billion Dollar Beach needs the personal touch here and there! I was creeping among the dunes of Clearwater Beach, looking for photo opportunities in the adjacent construction zone, the one with all the signs that say stay out, when I caught sight of the young lady with the roller. I felt quite the spy when I snapped this and slithered away without being seen.

However, I don't really think she was part of the Billion Dollar beach reconstruction, or the Beach Walk project. It actually looked as though she were helping to refurbish one of the many businesses caught in the vortex of those massive projects. There are a number of businesses whose customers are being so inconvenienced by the construction that they will likely close completely.

So, if you are headed out to the beach, please give them a chance. Try to walk a little further, wait a little more patiently, to get past the hassles and give them your business. Thanks.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Sightseeing Tour Boat Row
Tour Boat Row? Yup, pretty much. This is just one portion of the Clearwater Municipal Marina where the sightseeing boats tie up. Along the seawall here, you can step up to the many tour shacks and make arrangements for the various tour boats.

Among the vessels here, you will find Captain Memo's Pirate Ship Adventure, Thriller Powerboat Tours, Sky Screamer Parasail, Jet Ski Rentals, Sea Screamer, Little Toot, Calypso Queen and more! And of course, you may recognize Adrenaline, as she glides across the foreground of this picture.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Charter Fishing Boats
If you are in the mood to go fishing, and you want to get off the beach with your fishing rod, you might want to wander down to the Clearwater Municipal Marina and check out all the charter fishing boats. There are plenty of them there, all with their signs up posting their terms or availability. It looks like fun, doesn't it?
