Clearwater Beach 2

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 10 February 2013 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

... this is a companion to "Ready & waiting", taken the same day, alongside Pier 60. I love how the sky looks painted in both images.
=> This weekend we're thankful to be in Florida and not back in Connecticut, where this photo was taken. Our hometown of Milford received 3 feet [96.52 cm] of snow in this weekend's blizzard.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

CElliottUK from Reading, United Kingdom

What lovely white sand. A shot to raise the spirits on a dull, damp, grey day

10 Feb 2013 9:25am

@CElliottUK: I take it you didn't look at my link of Mike shoveling back in the day...

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

I'm always longing for the beach...because it is too far from our home! Well...after a lot of snow, the promise is of a very LONG,HOT SUMMER!

10 Feb 2013 10:12am

@Japanalia: We're happier near the beach ... but don't choose to live too very close.
Climate changes are taking their toll all around the world.

Doug from Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom

Now that's where we should be instead of watching the rain poor endlessly out of the sky

@Doug: Come on over ... and at the moment we're watching Rugby in Las Vegas!

Beautiful beach shot. And yes, far better here in FL than up East. My sister in law in Quincy, Mass has snow up to her fence tops.

@Viewfinder: Thanks ... and our hometown had 38" recorded ... too much! ;D

Jeff from Pembroke Dock, United Kingdom

Check out 5x2 here, "It Works".

@Jeff: This really sounds interesting ... I may try to give it a go, however must keep my diabetes in mind.

franz from Baden, Austria

as i said before, i like this white sand ... here, all that's white is the snow that has been coming down all day again, though fortunately not nearly in those quantities as in new england ...

10 Feb 2013 4:37pm

@franz: Enjoy your snow ... if you didn't have it you couldn't ski. (Hope photos are coming.)

Alun from cheshire, United Kingdom

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

This is a gorgeous image. I am also imagining it in B&W with just the umbrella in color.

10 Feb 2013 8:58pm

@Ruthiebear: Thanks, Ruthie ... but no blue sky, water or yellow lifeguard stand? ;D

john4jack from Corvallis, Oregon, United States

Carol from Leamington, Canada

I like the whole scene Judy, it just makes me feel happy and warm! :) I love the summer colors, the beautiful blue sky and that cute little lifeguard's house.... oh yes, the umbrella, I love umbrellas.... don't know why, I just do.... and all that gorgeous sand! It's a 'feel good' kind of photo!! I am looking forward to your cruise photos... take your time, we can wait!

10 Feb 2013 11:39pm

@Carol: Thank you so much, Carol ... what a warm comment; I'm so happy you enjoyed this one. I try to use special ones for Sundays and I guess I succeeded today. ... Thanks too for your patience re: the cruise photos. ;D

Rick from Toronto, Canada

Quite a contrast to what your hometown received, ha ha... Toronto had a decent storm wallop but nothing compared to a lot of other places. Apparently it's all going to be melting away by Tuesday. Nice shot !

11 Feb 2013 12:30am

@Rick: Thanks, Rick ... with all of the media hype before 'Nemo' ... I wondered what would actually transpire. Thankfully they were pretty accurate in their predictions ... this time.

Tim from Ft. Worth, United States

11 Feb 2013 3:41am
