CLEARWATER BEACH...

Saturday...a beautiful Florida day of sunshine and breezes. MacDaddy and I decided to go for a drive to Clearwater Beach. It's been awhile since we have been there (we usually avoid the "tourist" areas) and we were amazed at all the changes. What I loved the most were the renovated homes on the north end of the island. Here's a glimpse of my favorite...


I.AM.IN.LOVE!!!


Oh, how I wish I could have photographed the whole house! This classic beach bungalow in Clearwater Beach almost convinced me
to forget moving to the east coast. Almost, but not quite. (I did suggest to MacDaddy that we paint our house white with orange shutters. He rolled his eyes.)


One house away is this...
 It's a lovely beach access...


A few houses down the block, I spied this wall...
It's made from coquina "crush" stucco with large shells embedded in a design.
WOW!




Sea grasses blow in the wind. These grasses grow on the dunes...and separate the beach and the sidewalk on the public beach...
These dunes are fairly new...a great "natural" protection on the public beach. Showers are available for beach-goers. Each are topped with adorable sea turtles...


Love the changes along Clearwater Beach. It's a wonderful place for a gulf vacation...
Come on down!
