Sunset Walk

We have been back from Florida for two weeks now. Hole up in our mountain abode surrounded still by mountains of snow. Fortunately the snow is melting slowly so we can avoid some local flooding. Each day we watch the temperature creep up into the high twenties or low thirties and opt to walk on the treadmill watching episodes of Warehouse 13. I wish I could teleport and just take a walk on the beach. Note to self,”Stay south through March!”.

Volley Champs

A lot of younger people play volleyball on Clearwater Beach. They all look fine in their speedos and teeny bikinis. However, some can really play. These young ladies were playing for the Eastern Regional Beach Volleyball Championship and they knew how to spike and dig!

Togetherness

I was sitting on the beach with my telephoto zoom lens and saw this toddler running towards the waves by herself. Where are her handlers I thought. A young runner ran in front of her and she turned and ran away from the water. She sat down as I zoomed out and saw this group of young ladies paying absolutely no attention to her.

The little girl sat and played in the sand by herself. Well who am I to judge, maybe she wanted it that way. I assumed one of the young ladies was her mother but then I moved on.

A Valentine’s Day Beach Flirt

When did you first learn how to flirt? Chances are it was on Valentine’s Day. Although a manufactured holiday designed to sell greeting cards and candy, I can remember when it used to be important. As a child I would spend a long time agonizing over who received the bigger cards from my Walt Disney collection. As a young man, it was absolutely critical to not be alone on Valentine’s Day.

This picture is a study in flirting dynamics. The young man on the right is clearly with the girl next to him but seems to be trying to win over the young lady in the middle. The guy near the water needs to buy a clue.

Whatever you do have a great Valentine’s Day but don’t fall for that “Must buy candy” ploy!

The Soft Underbelly of Clearwater Beach

Clearwater Beach is probably one of the best beaches in the USA. Broad expanses of white sand manicured daily by an attentive staff. Beautiful sunsets complete with pirate ships, strolling families and flocks of sea birds.

However as large high rise condos are built the views of the small mom and pop motels that have been there for years are destroyed. This makes it hard for them to survive and some have fallen in to disrepair creating scenes like this.
