Clearwater Beach, Florida: Color Wheel Beach Umbrella

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Color Wheel Beach Umbrella
Do you remember your color wheel? I do. I think. I don't know why I do, but I remember this: Roy G Biv. Or R O Y G B I V... which stands for Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indigo Violet.

I was surprised to realize, while reviewing this picture, that the umbrella has exactly that color scheme (almost, I don't know WHERE the pink came from). Maybe that's why it is so appealing to me. Strange what undercurrents run through our lives, isn't it?

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Happy Beach Scene Awaits You
This is pretty straight up. See the beach. See the beach people. See the beach scene. Now... see the place in the beach scene left open for you? Good! Now, see the beach scene with you in it. Yes, there you go. See YOU, in the beach scene.

Now you are really getting the hang of this. I'm proud of you. Now, sit down and get out of my light! :D

Happy Friday!

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Frolic On A Sunny Sea Of Sand
Come frolic on our sea of sunny sand. Or is it frolic on our sunny sea of sand? Oh heck, you get the idea. Look at the picture. Sand, sun, plenty of room to frolic.

No you do NOT have to frolic if you do not like that. You may walk, sit, stand, lay, lie, bask, roll, recline, repose, or just about anything else you like... as long as you are ENJOYING yourself, and getting some RELAXATION and BATTERY CHARGING for your SOUL!

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Beach Scene... NO GATORS!

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Beach Scene... NO GATORS!
Like most any good day on the beach, lots of us were there to enjoy the sunset. Although I kept both eyes peeled, I didn't see any alligators down there in the surf. No, no sharks either. Let's face it, they've got better things to do, like catch and eat fish that are SOOOO much healthier than most of us!

I love a good beach scene. Be sure to click and enlarge it so you can really sink yourself into the moment. Feel that warm sunset breeze, smell that wonderful saltwater, let your tired feet sink into the cool soft sand... yeah, that's it, you're getting the hang of it now. Happy Hump Day.

Oh, and if you haven't lately... please think about donating blood sometime soon!

Clearwater Beach, Florida: FIELD TRIP! Sawgrass Lake Park

Clearwater Beach, Florida: FIELD TRIP! Sawgrass Lake Park St. Petersburg
GATOR! DW and I took an impromptu mini-vacation Sunday, and spent a few hours at Sawgrass Lake Park, in St. Petersburg. It is a really beautiful place. It's amazing to think that it exists here, in the middle of this densely populated county.

St. Petersburg is just about 15 or 20 minutes south of Clearwater Beach, and it is really easy to find this park. This is actually not even the first alligator we saw at the park. I have some other pictures to share, perhaps, of the babies we saw too. But this shot was such a nice clear image of this wonderful animal. I'd say it was about 5 or 6 feet long. We were watching safely from a position on the deck, about 4 or 5 feet above.

All in all that day, we saw three adult alligators of about this size, 4 baby alligators that were about a foot long, a GIANT soft-shelled turtle, and a wide variety of other wildlife. It was an awesome holiday away from chores and work and worries.

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Big Blue Playground Slide Ladder

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Big Blue Playground Slide Ladder
Well, there you go! Big Blue is the ladder to a slide on the playground on Clearwater Beach. Simple as that. I may yet post a pic of the 'inside' of Big Blue, so you can see the way cool design that kids use to get to the top of the slide. Lady Demeter, good job! You came very close.

I hope you all had a good weekend. Now it is Monday, and we are all back to work. I admit it... just like almost every other Monday, I find myself echoing the words of DW: "One more day, I just need one more day!"

Clearwater Beach, Florida: Big Blue Is Waiting For YOU!
Okay, here we go... this is Big Blue. Well, at least, that's what I call him/her. Big Blue is waiting for you down on Clearwater Beach. Can you tell WHAT Big Blue is?

Had a brief lapse in lucidity when I agreed to meet the kids for a grand-baby photo shoot on the beach, on a SATURDAY evening. OMG! People everywhere! I mean, people EVERYWHERE. They were hanging out car windows, running all over the beach, it was a madhouse. Lots of people having fun and enjoying the beginnings of summer. Were you there?
