Better Half and I ventured out to check out First Friday in Clearwater last Friday evening. Oh my. One reason, especially, for having made it out on that particular Friday night was that there was to be SNOW! That's right. Snow, right here in Clearwater, Florida. And there was!
I'm happy to say that it was not oh-my-God-the-roads-are-closed snow, just a very localized dusting that resulted in a pile big enough for the kiddies to get on and slide down. What fun! I mean, how cool is it to be able to go sledding for even just thirty seconds in a place like Florida?
Meanwhile, before we could even get to the snow pile... we were accosted by PIRATES!! That's right, pirates right here in downtown Clearwater. Very fun! That would be Captain Romantic on the right, and the Krewe of the Bitter End! I'm pretty sure that is Jensen in the middle (I know, not much of a pirate name... perhaps I got it wrong?). These guys were awesome! The costumes are wonderful, and they were having a great time with the crowd and the photographers like me. Thanks Guys!
Thanks for coming today, I hope you enjoyed your mini-vacation to Clearwater, Florida!
