    Zwischenstopp in Clearwater

    December 5, 2016 in the United States

    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

    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.

    Clearwater, Florida

    March 27, 2017 in the United States

    On our way home to nap we swung into King's Pizza where the deal of the day was 2 slices gets you a free beverage. Grabbed the sausage and cheese, light crust even worthy of eating the pizza bones and with the price of 2 slices for $5 it was a deal!

    After our nap we set out to see what the night life was like. Caught a busker who was getting ready for his grand finale, a double fire whip act. It's was great but we feel he needed less talk and more rock.

    Searching menus of local eateries we drifted down a side street with nothing striking our tastes. As we walked I smelled marvelous food coming a building tucked away off the street. Approaching the building we discovered Bobby's Bistro & Wine Bar. Looking in through the tinted glass of the door it didn't appear to be lively, yet did look a bit expensive. The waitress saw looking in and opened the door inviting us in. It's a real quaint little joint with almost a Greek feel to it. Kitchen was closing so we put our order in as they seated us in there covered patio area. Sami got the Caesar salad and I the steak salad, both were delicious! Prices ranged from $5-$14 for the food, but what's great about Bobby's is the staff. Very friendly, apologetic, they brought us fresh made warm bread with a bowl of olive oil, pesto and Parmesan cheese. The wait staff never let our water glasses empty. The music was fun, ambient and peppy being played through the speakers of the place. Suddenly Eminem's "Real Slim Shady" came on and quickly changed as we were getting in the groove. All-in-all it's a very quaint joint, find it at 447 Mandalay Ave, Clearwater Beach.

    We strolled back to our abode smiling over having such a great time and meal at Bobby's. Once home I threw a movie on via my laptop patched into the TV and we quickly snored our way to the next day.

    Dia de playa Oeste

    February 12, 2017 in the United States

    La ciudad del sol, el lema oficial de Saint Petersburg. Las playas del oeste de la ciudad son concurridas y apetecidas por sus atardeceres. El agua estaba muy fría (corriente del golfo de México) suponemos por la época del año (invierno). Lo que más me impresionó fue la fina arena blanca de la playa, la más suave que haya pisado que yo recuerde. Es como si se caminara sobre harina para cocinar!. Si pudiera construir una playa la haría de esta arena, seguro!!.

    El atardecer es de Clearwater Beach al norte. La segunda foto es de St. Pete Beach, al sur por la misma costa.

    Clearwater Beach --> Panama City Beach

    August 22, 2017 in the United States

    Nach einer sehr heißen Nacht sind wir schon um 7 Uhr aufgestanden und hatten ordentlich Hunger. Vor allem Henry da er am Abend nichts gegessen hat. Bevor wir essen gegangen sind, waren wir noch einmal am Strand baden. Von Clearwater Beach ging es dann in die Innenstadt zum einkaufen. Leider hatten noch alle Läden zu aber wir hatten zum Glück noch eine ganze Melone. Die verspeisten wir genüsslich und haben uns auf dem Parkplatz noch ein bisschen frisch gemacht. Nun hatten auch alle Läden offen und wir konnten uns Internet für's Handy besorgen. In einem 1$ Laden laden haben wir noch eins zwei Sachen geholt die wir zum Beispiel für's abwaschen benötigen.
    Die Läden gibt es hier in der USA sehr oft und sind für uns das Paradies.😜 Alles für 1 Doller, besser geht es nicht. 👍

    Wir sind eine Stunde gefahren und plötzlich ging Henry's Handy nicht mehr. Wir haben alles probiert um es zum laufen zu bringen doch es wollte nicht angehen. Die Karte konnten wir auch nicht in mein Handy stecken, da wir kein Teil dafür hatten. Also mussten wir an einem McDonalds anhalten, weil es dort immer kostenloses Wlan gibt. Wir haben uns ein Schokoshake geholt und haben gegoogelt wo in der Nähe ein Apple Store gibt. Es war keiner in unserer Nähe. 😞
    Henry hat es dann mit irgendeiner Tastenkombination hin bekommen das, das Handy wieder läuft.
    Nun konnte es nach einem kurzem Tankstop weiter gehen. Wir sind von da aus bis nach Tallahassee gefahren. Außer einer schönen Uni gab es da nicht viel zu sehen. Da haben wir uns echt mehr von versprochen.
    Wir beschlossen schnell das wir weiter fahren sollten.
    Die nächst größere Stadt war dann Panama City. Dort angekommen sahen wir eine sehr schöne Stadt die leider sehr leer war. Es waren auf beiden Straßenseiten viele Geschäfte die teilst offen und teilst zu waren. Wir schauten uns den Hafen an und fuhren ungefähr 15 min weiter nach Panama City Beach.
    Es war eine komplett andere Welt. Die Straßen waren voll, Geschäfte waren offen und der Strand war gut besucht. Die Badehosen waren schnell angezogen und das Meer hat unsere Füße berührt. Das war ein wundervoller Moment da wir fast 9 Stunden gefahren sind.

    Nach dem Baden sind wir die Hauptstraße hoch gelaufen und waren noch shoppen. Am Meer ging es dann zurück.
    Allerdings hatten wir noch kein Schlafplatz. Der nächste Campingplatz war viel zu teuer. Also haben wir uns letztendlich auf ein Parkplatz gestellt, unseren Gaskocher angemacht und Nudeln mit Tomatensoße gekocht.
    Das Zelt wurde aufgebaut und wir haben uns auf's Ohr gelegt.

    PS: Wir haben kaum Bilder gemacht weil wir eigentlich nur auf den Straßen waren. Deswegen nur kleine Eindrücke was wir gesehen haben.
