We stayed for one month on Sunset Beach, a small residential community in Treasure Island Florida. On every clear evening people gathered to watch the sunset, surf or stroll on the beach during the magic hour.
Gulf Boulevard runs along the Gulf of Mexico before it turns into Blind Pass at St. Petersburgh Beach. After a while it begins again and runs towards the end of the St. Petersburg peninsula. Where it turns into Blind Pass in Treasure Island there is a small spur called Gulf Boulevard West that runs along the Gulf before it ends at Boca Ciega Bay.
This sour is known as Sunset Beach and is a small community within Treasure Island.It is a tranquil Gulf community that is mostly residential with only two restaurants/bars and few other businesses. When the sun sets people come out on their decks and stroll along the beach. It is not crowded but as the sun falls into the Gulf you can hear cheers and applause along the beach.
Every night the sunsets at the beach would bring something a little different. On windy nights the surfers were out and the whipping wind provided photographic challenges. But calm nights would bring out the long-boarders and gentle sea breezes made for a pleasant relaxing photographic experience on Sunset Beach.
