Go the extra mile!

It’s getting to that time of the year when Clearwater Beach gets really crowded so I decided to walk the extra mile to the quieter Sand Key Park which lies just over the Sand Key Bridge, passing by Captain Bligh’s Landing miniature golf, a fun place to spend some time if you’re tired of the beach!

Sand Key Park has two distinct areas—a beach and a park. It is also part of the Great Florida Birding Trail and has a salt marsh with viewing benches where heron, roseate spoonbill, great horned owl, anhinga, and common moorhen nest and feed.

Sand Key is aptly named as the beach has a huge expanse of sand, especially the area fronting the Sheraton Sand Key ResortMuch as I enjoyed the quiet and wide beaches at Sand Key, the sand itself is nowhere as fine or white as at Clearwater Beach and has a lot of broken shells.

It was so windy today that I got a new funky hairdo! Started walking back about 4 pm as it was starting to get chilly. Took some pictures of the area around the bridge.

Also stopped to check out a couple of watering holes just across the street from my condo. Jimmy’s Fish House & Iguana Bar is a popular spot for locals and tourists alike to have a beer and watch the sunset.
