Clearwater Beach, Florida: Beach Holiday, Vacation Rentals, Condos, Accommodations 1
It is starting to look like a few of you may have misunderstood the whole sunscreen concept. So let's get off the sand and out of the sun for a bit. We'll take a little tour of some of the vacation and holiday rental options out here on Clearwater Beach.

This is probably the smallest rental cottage I have ever seen out here on the Beach. I would be surprised if it's more than 250 square feet. But the location is almost perfect. It's right on the main drag, on one of the side streets that ends at the beach. Yeah, from the front door, maybe 30 or 40 steps and you are in the sand. Nice!

Clearwater Beach, Florida: What Are YOU Doing This Weekend?

Now, before you get mad at me for insinuating that I am going to spend a luxurious weekend on the beach, while you are doing your chores... know this: I have too many chores to do this weekend, and I will NOT be on the beach. Doggone it!

But it's nice, just the same, to think about this scene, and imagine being there on a blanket, or in a chair, without a worry or a care. To be warm upon the sand, with a nice cool drink in hand. To feel the caressing breeze, and to put your mind at ease.

(I apologize if any of that scenery offends anyone. Remember, it takes all kinds to make a beach a beach.)

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Skimboarding - Chasing Waves

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Skimboarding - Chasing Waves
So here he is again, off chasing waves. No, I have no idea who he is, but I enjoyed practicing my action photography while he chased the ankle high waves. I figure you all might have had enough of this by now, but I was so pleased with catching him in action like this, that I could not resist posting it.

Besides, some of you might be looking for tips on how to do this, after yesterday's photo! :D And for at least one of you, this shot is all about the sailboat in the background. Enjoy.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: HOT Skim Boarding Action

Clearwater Beach, Florida: HOT Skim Boarding Action
I admit, watching those skimboarding young men for an hour or so, chasing these little tiny waves that barely cover your ankles... made me wonder what the big deal is. I mean, what's the big attraction. Well... NOW I understand.

Truly, it is amazing what we men will do for a chance to talk with a pretty girl!

I was driving by the Sandpearl again the other day, and the light on the building looked so good I could not resist taking another picture of it. Not to mention, the gorgeous blue sky above.

Happy Tuesday.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Beach People: I Saw You At The Beach

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Beach People: Warm Sun Sand Waves
Was that you? I think I saw you at the beach last weekend. You seemed like you were having a really good time. You walked along the beach, with the waves of the Gulf Of Mexico murmuring at your ankles. You felt the warm sun on your skin and smiled. It made you feel good, happy, fresh. You wore your hat upside down, making fun of your parents, who would not take off their shoes. They still had fun though.

I bet you'll remember your vacation to Clearwater Beach for a long, long time.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Late Arriving Bird Gets Whatever He Can

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Warm, Sunny Beach: People Sunbathing Walking: Pier 60: Umbrellas, Towels
Friday I showed you what the beach looks like when you get there early and get a good spot. Today, I show you what it looks like when you get there a little later. You get whatever spot you can find!

Lots of people had the same idea about what a wonderful day it was going to be on the beach. They came in droves. They make the beach what it is, in its other personality. People from all walks of life, from all income levels, from all over the world. But when they walk down the beach in their bathing suit or shorts and t-shirt, they are just like everyone else.

That's Pier 60 in the background. On the left, just before you would get to Pier 60, you will find the Palm Pavilion restaurant and the Palm Pavilion Inn. Just past Pier 60 a little ways, you will find Frenchy's Rockaway restaurant. Come to think of it, the tall building in the near foreground on the left is the Sandpearl Residences building. The Sandpearl Resort is out of view just a little more to the left.
