    Naples - Clearwater - St Augustine

    June 19, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Managed to get to the 7 Mile Bridge over the Keys before another heavy thunderstorm hit us and followed us most of the way. Still, we enjoyed the country music on the way. As we arrived at Naples on the Gulf of Mexico coast, the weather cleared and we had a lovely walk around this beautiful city. It is very clean and upmarket with classy designer shops and fine restaurants. The homes lining the palm tree 🌴 avenues were gorgeous, and the area has been referred to as the Palm Springs of Florida. I remembered being here with Mags - can it really have been 34 years ago? - and we loved it then too. It really has to be one of the most attractive cities in Florida. Had a lovely walk along the old pier and saw a young fisherman catch a hammerhead shark, to the great excitement of onlookers, which he released back into the ocean.

    Next day we headed north up the Gulf Coast and arrived at our next destination - Clearwater Beach. Another beautiful place. Today was hot and sunny and so we headed to the lovely white sandy beach. Although it was busy, there was plenty of space for everyone. I have to say though, with all the tanned, svelte bodies around, we looked a bit like Bette and Joan in the final beach scene of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane. Another lovely evening walk and another busy pier, this time lined with stalls selling arts and crafts.

    Regrettably the sunshine didn’t last, as we left the Gulf Coast. We stopped for breakfast at a traditional American diner, complete with wisecracking waitress. The diner was located adjacent to a Dinner Theatre, a Lutheran Church and the County Courthouse. A middle aged couple in the booth next to us were having a heated discussion, presumably prior to their divorce hearing in the Court next door. ‘The bed may be yours, but I goddam paid for that sofa and you ain’t having that!’ declared the lady, as they exited the diner into their separate cars.

    Next stop was an overnight at America’s oldest city - St Augustine. Although very touristy, it was an attractive town to walk around in, and the main historic area was pedestrianised and easy to get about. We particularly liked the beautiful former Ponce de Leon Hotel, now Flagler College, built by industrialist Henry Flagler, a key figure in the development of the Atlantic Coast of Florida.

    Looking forward to catching up with Sadie and family tomorrow!

    June 7, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Nachdem sich der Himmel hier allmählich zuzieht und für die nächsten Wochen Regen und Gewitter prognostiziert sind, haben wir uns noch einmal auf gemacht, wenigstens einen der schönen Strände an der hiesigen Golfküste zu besuchen. Und welcher Ort wäre dafür besser geeignet als der Guinessrekordhalter für 361 Tage Sonnenschein in Folge? Am Clearwater Beach gab es dann auch tatsächlich ein Sonnenstündchen für uns und am Ende waren wir uns einig: Dies war bisher der schönste Strand auf unserer Reise. Im weißen, feinen Sand, dem angenehm warmen, flachen und sehr klaren Wasser, könnte man es (ohne Baby) durchaus länger aushalten und sich von den sanften Wellen umspülen lassen. So hieß es ein Mal panieren, eintauchen, duschen, that‘s it.Read more

    Zwischenstopp in Clearwater

    December 5, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 24 °C

    Spontan haben wir uns entschieden, nicht die direkte Route zu unserem nächsten Ziel zu nehmen, sondern einen Umweg zu fahren, um das Panorama und Feeling mehr genießen zu können. Die Strecke führte uns über Tampa an die Golfküste, von dort aus nach Süden.

    Hier der erste Teil, unser Zwischenstopp am Clearwater Beach. Leider etwas wolkig, aber Sand wie Puderzucker 🏖

    Clearwater Fun

    March 27, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    What's to say about Cleaewater, Florida?
    Well for one it's a very fun touristy beach town, typical food and drinks we're not pocket gouging to say the least. Drinks ranged in the $6-$9 range and were fair pours to say the least. Food prices ranged from appetizers $6-$8 and dinners $9-$12 depending on where you decide to eat. Our hotel ran about $130 a night, so now on to the fun stuff!

    We awaken in our hotel room at the Sta 'N Pla Marina Resort. It's a quaint little place with two locations about 50 feet from each other. Sami described it as A cross between Miami Vice meets Melrose Place with pools in the middle. Free Wifi with a sting connection. The bed was very comfortable with super soft pillows, couch, coffee table, coffee maker and coffee, mini fridge and well you get the idea. Most of all it was very clean and relaxing.

    Word to the wise, bring a HDMI cable and a laptop so you can patch right into the TV to play tunes or watch whatever you care to as we did!

    We set off to for our meal of the day and found Frenchy's Beach Bar and grill to be a cool spot to hit. Staff was ultra friendly and we decided upon fried calamari. It was a lightly battered with an assortment of shapes and sizes. Sami had the Long Island Ice Tea and I a schooled top shelf margarita.
    When the food arrived their cocktail sauce was bland to say the least but once we got the garlic aioli sauce, that food was going down quickly.

    Struck up a conversation with a young couple, Chris and Courtney who were day visiting. When we first sat down they were having a lovers quarrel, but not long after Sami applied her compassionate charm and relationship advice they calmed becoming quite jovial. After my second margarita I was quite buzzed, yet upon ordering a third I felt it was time to entertain them with card and coin magic. Chris seemed to be an "expert" on my magic, but I broke through his gruff exterior and humorist him. Courtney on the other had repeatedly expressed her mind being blown. All and all they were quite adorable. Paying our bill we set out to the beach.

    The beach sand was soft and white, little cabana umbrellas lined the shore as people played, sunbathed and soaked in the atmosphere. There's a seagull on these shores that literally enjoy hovering over you and laugh. We decided to call the Mocking Gulls! Since I had contacted Sunsets on Pier 60, it's an organization that puts on busker entertainment and vendors for the night every day 2 hours before sunset and 2 hours afterwards. (Those who're entertainers interested in performing, contact dallasthefireguy@gmail.com )
    Assessing the scenario for my shows the next night we headed off to get water and bathroom as my stomach was still upset from the fast food at St. Louis airport.

    We stopped at Duffy's Bar along the market strip, we ordered Corona for the gal and I had a Heineken with a shot of Cuervo. DO NOT ORDER SHOTS HERE because they were ridiculously short. We left after I shared some rope magic with a family that has three daughters.

    Since this blog site is called Find Penguins, we felt it's only apropos to seek out a penguin along the way. Stopping into a boutique called Bags and Baubles I will let Sami take it from here. Sami: Purses and bling with lots of shiny things! A very beautiful selection of hand bags and jewelry, so of course a cool Bettina ring and silver thumb ring was purchased along with a gift for my friend Kelly. The gentleman working the counter was sweet and funny saying we had a slim chance finding a penguin there or anywhere near laughing about our mission. But we looked anyways.

    Needing other provisions we set out to get them for the rest of our trip, Ziplock baggies, Moonshine....you know, the important stuff! Low and behold Sage found our first penguin, her name is Waddles and she was saved from the confines of Mr. Walgreens shop of corporate plenty. Sage also surprised me with a set of Bettina ear rings that have a pearl with sea shells.

    We went back towards our room for some napping.
