Aloha to Florida - Clearwater Beach

We are currently staying in a vacation condo in Oldsmar at the top of Tampa Bay.   Our previous trip to Honeymoon Island yielded a rocky beach (link) ... so we ventured to Clearwater Beach for the renowed sandy stretches.  

It was an overcast day with a few breezes ...

... and sea shells galore!

Clearwater Beach offers a fishing pier ...

 ... and pirates off shore!   

The pirate ship docked at the harbor ...

... for the next round of tourist seeking a high seas adventure!

Have you sailed on a pirate ship?  Sail boat?  Cruise ship?   One randomly selected commenter from this week's blogs wins a book choice from my convention stash.  Comments are open through Saturday, August 16, 10 pm in Baltimore.  I'll post the winner on Sunday, August 17.

  1. These are great pictures and I have actually been there. The only time I have been on a ship was at Disney and oh how much I love going there.

  2. I went on a pirate boat at Disney a long time ago. I've also been to Clearwater Beach a few times. It's beautiful, and much better than the beaches we have on the Atlantic side.

  3. I've been on a few cruises.

  4. I have been on a sail boat once. It slept 6 and we have a blast.

  5. I haven't had the chance to be on a sail boat or a pirate ship, but I have been on 5 cruises.

  6. I don't go out on the water much since I tend to get a bit seasick. Although I would love to go on a pirate ship but not have to walk the plank! ;-)
