Camping Near Clearwater Beach Florida – Fishing, Biking, Shelling and Sunday\'s Sunset

Clearwater Beach Florida Sunset Series

I’m breaking all the rules this week since this week’s sunset is found south of Clearwater Beach FL  in Tierra Verde Florida and Ft Desoto Park. We’ve even included a video to help share the experience this week. So next week we’ll be back to normal with a sunset quote and the spotlight on one special sunset.    

We got to take time off this past week from selling homes and condos on Clearwater Beach Florida to go tent camping in Tierra Verde with my parents who came down from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to spend some quality time with my family and be here to celebrate some family birthdays. 

Jack was a trooper and was running back and forth between the campsite and Clearwater Beach since we had clients visiting from Massachusetts along with several buyers working towards closing on their homes for Christmas.  

We sometimes sunset over shell keyforget how lucky we are to be able to do “tent camping” along the Gulf beaches near Clearwater for a variety of reasons. First, it’s such comfortable weather it was in the 80’s all week; Second, it’s a bargain when you consider it costs less than $40 per night with electricity, running water, clean and safe facilities and more; Third, it’s truly a piece of waterfront paradise on the Gulf of Mexico.

The best part of camping around Clearwater FL in the winter (ok actually there is one more week of fall left but don’t tell my friends up north) is you get to experience the best parts of Pinellas County Gulf beach living without having to travel very far. 

You can go fishing from the park seawall or the gulf of mexico pier; birdwatching along the Great Florida Bird Trail, collecting sand dollars and shelling along the beach, biking through the trails, and just hanging out relaxing in the hammocks – ending each day watching the sun dip below the water with the promise of another beautiful day tomorrow.    

If you have a sunset you want to share just email it to me at cyndee@sandbarstosunsets.com

Thanks for allowing me to share a little about the fun we have living in Clearwater Florida and our extensive parks and recreation system in Pinellas County that we feel justified in bragging about. 

As the sunset on our week of old fashion family fun at Ft Desoto Park – it was great to experience a week with no gameboys, no TV’s just serene walks, personal talks and hanging out in the hammocks.

I thought you’d get a kick seeing our youngest enjoy sleeping under the Florida stars in shorts – we definitely had perfect Clearwater winter weather.

This is the picture I’ll carry in my mind of “total relaxation and comfort” – isn’t that what we all are looking for. Not to worry, we’ve got lots of great outdoor retreats here in and around Clearwater Florida. We look forward to sharing more special sunsets from our piece of paradise.  

Wishing you a great upcoming week – remember not to get too hurried with all the holiday hustle and bustle to enjoy some old fashion fun with your family and friends. 

From our family to your’s have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.    

Gotta a local sunset – won’t you share?

In Clearwater Florida Paddling is Common and Happens Often

Fun Things to do on Water in Tampa Bay’s Bluest Backyards 

IMG_2936I was driving the other day from Pinellas County, heading over the Gandy Bridge and Tampa Bay to South Tampa when I was reminded of one of my favorite past times – paddling. 

No I’m not talking about “paddling” as in spanking, though I must say I received a few of those in my youth.  Paddling is what locals call “kayaking” around here in the Clearwater Florida area.  Pinellas County is actually surrounded on three sides by water  (the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay) which is why we are blessed with so many blue backyards and so kayaking is one of the popular ways of sightseeing or even flats fishing when you’re looking for a relaxing eco-friendly day – now that’s my kind of Green Living.

So what jogged my memories? Seeing Dave Camp and the guys from Sweetwater Kayaks helping some local kayakers put in to the mangroves along the side of the road and off into the waters of Tampa Bay. I have to confess I was even running a little late to a friends wedding and couldn’t resist quickly pulling off the side of the road for a few shots and a quick video interview . I’m always excited to be able to bring great info back to the readers of Sandbars to Sunsets. Here is the interview with lots of good info on kayaking around Clearwater | Saint Petersburg | Tampa Bay…   

Dave tells about Local Kayaking | Weedon Island Self-Guided Tour

So have you had a good paddling lately? If so, what’s your favorite place to kayak?
