Clearwater Beach, Florida: Beach People: Father & Daughter
Sun, sand, waves, hand in hand with Father. I don't know... does it get any better than that?

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Windy Day On Pier 60 Final

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach, Florida: Windy Day On Pier 60 Final
Here you have, from the 'other end', a markedly different view of Pier 60. Yesterday's picture captured the view of Pier 60 from the street side, as you approach the beach, on a sunny day. Today's view captures the pier from the Gulf side, looking back at the beach and the entrance, on a windy, gloomy day.

I hope you enjoyed the Windy Day series. I know I enjoyed capturing these images, as I am always tickled to get to see an unusual 'mood' of a place. Just by way of interesting tidbits, I will tell you that I have been volunteered to meet the Kids down here on the beach this weekend, to take pictures of the Grand-Babies 'on the beach', their first experience playing in the sand. I imagine sand in mouths and I expect tears and wailing. :D

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Theme Day May 2008: Numbers Pier 60 Sign
Welcome to Theme Day May 2008: Numbers. When it comes to Clearwater Beach, I just can't think of any numbers that carry as much significance as this one.

Pier 60 could be considered the epicenter of all that is Clearwater Beach for many people here, and around the world. If you come to visit Clearwater Beach, you are either going to hear about it as a landmark, or you are going to come and visit to see all the beautiful scenery here.

There are over 180 Daily Photo Bloggers from around the WORLD participating in Theme Day this month. I encourage you to take a moment or two to sample their blogs:

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Beach Scene: Beach Weather: Beach People

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Beach Scene: Beach Weather: Beach People
Don't think I haven't noticed the grumbling coming from the back of the room. I know many of you have really been enjoying seeing a different side, a different mood if you will, of Clearwater Beach. However, a number of you are jonesing for something more of a Chamber of Commerce scene. So here you are.

This is typical Clearwater Beach. I snapped this on the North Beach section while I sat watching the beach people walk by. Sometimes it's nice to be in the chairs watching the parade, sometimes it's nice to be the parade. On this day, it was nice to be watching the parade.

If the larger image you see when you click on the picture above just isn't giving you the desired effect, please click here to see a REALLY large version of the image (1800 pixels wide).

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Pier 60 Windy Day Fishing?

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach, Florida: Pier 60 Windy Day Fishing?
If you were brave enough to head out onto Pier 60 on this very windy day, this is what your reward would look like. So few people about that you could have danced from one end to the other.

Of course, the wind might make that difficult. But being one of the few people who will venture out in a little adverse weather means you get to have the place to yourself, almost. I like that.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Windy Day: View From Pier 60

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach, Florida: Windy Day: View From Pier 60
I have posted this view, or a very similar view, before. But then again, this is a very different view also. True, most days on the beach here are calm, sunny, warm and tranquil. But that was not the case on this particular day. I love to capture this other, WILD, side of the beach.

Though most people would not think of trying to stretch out a blanket and lay down here on a day like this, it is still an excellent opportunity to get some fresh air, and to get to know the beach a little better! How about those awesome waves too! Wow, what a show! (I hit the magic wand button on this image, and it really brought out the colors and the drama. I hope you like it.)

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Windy Day On The Beach

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater Beach, Florida: Windy Day On The Beach
It was a little cold, it was a LOT windy. But if you are from a more northern latitude than here, that might just feel like home. I can almost guarantee that there are no 'locals' in this picture!

If you can look long enough, and put aside expectations and desires about warm sunny beach days, the beach is still very beautiful in this weather. If you haven't before, I recommend a walk on the beach on a day like this. Yes, it can be cold... but it's exciting, and when you get home, you will be so happy to enjoy your nice warm house!
