Clearwater, Florida: Real Estate: Home For Sale

Clearwater, Florida: Real Estate: Home For Sale
Here is a neat looking older home I spotted down a side street, near the waterfront in Clearwater. It looks like it could use some repair and maintenance loving. It's still a neat looking house, in general though, if you like that style.

I am not big on this style, but it looks interesting enough that I would look inside if I thought it was in my budget, and if I were in the market. The Clearwater real estate market, like all of Pinellas County, seems to still be in a downward slide.

Clearwater, Florida: Cool Pete & Shorty's Sign

Clearwater, Florida: Cool Pete & Shorty's Sign
I forgot I had a picture of this cool Pete & Shorty's Tavern sign. I know it's not real old and all that... but I think they did a neat job of giving it that old-timey look. So I thought you might find it interesting too.

I often wonder what it would take, just how many photos would be necessary, to completely document a city. I mean, when you think of it, it gets bigger and bigger. Overwhelming. So no, I have no plans to completely document the City of Clearwater. Yikes!

Oh, since someone asked... related to the post about the kids killed by the fleeing crack dealer... no, that is not a big problem here. No more so than most cities this size, and probably less than many. Ironically, the carbon-based life-form crack dealer who did this was actually from St. Petersburg (about 15 miles south).

Clearwater, Florida: Waterfront Condo: Water's Edge

Clearwater, Florida: Waterfront Condo: Water's Edge
I posted a picture of this new building last year, on November 27th. Click here if you would like to see the difference.

It should be quite a place to live, if you have the budget for it. I would think there should be some awesome views from up there. Of course, you are downtown Clearwater, so there is that to consider also. Pretty cool.

Clearwater, Florida: Memorial Signs: Drive Safely PLEASE!

Clearwater, Florida: Memorial Signs: Drive Safely PLEASE!
I originally thought these memorial posts must have been the result of some sort of traffic accident that resulted in their deaths. Sadly, upon Googling the names, I find that is not the case. They were killed, that much is correct. But the fact is, they were killed (and two other passengers in the same car nearly killed) by a now-convicted crack dealer who was fleeing the police.

You can read the original story in the St. Pete Times here, and the story about the sentencing here. So maybe the signs should say, instead of "Drive Safely", "Stamp Out Crack Dealers".

Clearwater, Florida: FIELD TRIP! Sawgrass Lake Park

Clearwater, Florida: FIELD TRIP! Sawgrass Lake Park St. Petersburg
GATOR! DW and I took an impromptu mini-vacation Sunday, and spent a few hours at Sawgrass Lake Park, in St. Petersburg. It is a really beautiful place. It's amazing to think that it exists here, in the middle of this densely populated county.

St. Petersburg is just about 15 or 20 minutes south of Clearwater, and it is really easy to find this park. This is actually not even the first alligator we saw at the park. I have some other pictures to share, perhaps, of the babies we saw too. But this shot was such a nice clear image of this wonderful animal. I'd say it was about 5 or 6 feet long. We were watching safely from a position on the deck, about 4 or 5 feet above.

All in all that day, we saw three adult alligators of about this size, 4 baby alligators that were about a foot long, a GIANT soft-shelled turtle, and a wide variety of other wildlife. It was an awesome holiday away from chores and work and worries.

Clearwater, Florida: Construction Fly By Picture

Clearwater, Florida: Construction Fly By Picture
On the way to Clearwater Beach yesterday, DW driving, I riding shotgun. Barely a moment to see the shot coming up. Quick motion with the camera. Shooting as the window barely went down and got out of the way.

All that to bring you this stunning (sarcasm) image of construction in Clearwater. What it will be, I don't know. Not a condo or hotel I think. Rather I suspect a retirement home. But no, I don't know for sure. This is just one of life's little mysteries for me... and now for you too. :D

Happy Monday.

Clearwater, Florida: Pete & Shorty's Tavern: Fountain

Clearwater, Florida: Pete & Shorty's Tavern: Fountain
Did I mention the fountain? On the patio at Pete & Shorty's Tavern, they have this really cool fountain. I am looking forward to getting a chance to shoot it at night, as I am told it is lit up and looks really cool.

Happy Sunday! Are you getting some rest today? Or are you working like mad to get all your chores done before work tomorrow? Are you relaxed, or are you already worrying about going to work tomorrow? Things to think about, my friends, things to think about. Peace.
