Camping Near Clearwater Beach Florida – Fishing, Biking, Shelling and Sunday’s Sunset

Clearwater Beach Florida Sunset Series

I’m breaking all the rules this week since this week’s sunset is found south of Clearwater Beach FL in Tierra Verde Florida and Ft Desoto Park. We’ve even included a video to help share the experience this week. So next week we’ll be back to normal with a sunset quote and the spotlight on one special sunset.

We got to take time off this past week from selling homes and condos on Clearwater Beach Florida to go tent camping in Tierra Verde with my parents who came down from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to spend some quality time with my family and be here to celebrate some family birthdays.

Jack was a trooper and was running back and forth between the campsite and Clearwater Beach since we had clients visiting from Massachusetts along with several buyers working towards closing on their homes for Christmas.

We sometimes forget how lucky we are to be able to do “tent camping” along the Gulf beaches near Clearwater for a variety of reasons. First, it’s such comfortable weather it was in the 80’s all week; Second, it’s a bargain when you consider it costs less than $40 per night with electricity, running water, clean and safe facilities and more; Third, it’s truly a piece of waterfront paradise on the Gulf of Mexico.

The best part of camping around Clearwater FL in the winter (ok actually there is one more week of fall left but don’t tell my friends up north) is you get to experience the best parts of Pinellas County Gulf beach living without having to travel very far.

You can go fishing from the park seawall or the gulf of mexico pier; birdwatching along the Great Florida Bird Trail, collecting sand dollars and shelling along the beach, biking through the trails, and just hanging out relaxing in the hammocks – ending each day watching the sun dip below the water with the promise of another beautiful day tomorrow.

Clearwater Beach Real Estate Agents Favorite Florida Sunset from week Camping

Thanks for allowing me to share a little about the fun we have living in Clearwater Florida and our extensive parks and recreation system in Pinellas County that we feel justified in bragging about.

As the sunset on our week of old fashion family fun at Ft Desoto Park – it was great to experience a week with no gameboys, no TV’s just serene walks, personal talks and hanging out in the hammocks.

I thought you’d get a kick seeing our youngest enjoy sleeping under the Florida stars in shorts – we definitely had perfect Clearwater winter weather.

This is the picture I’ll carry in my mind of “total relaxation and comfort” – isn’t that what we all are looking for. Not to worry, we’ve got lots of great outdoor retreats here in and around Clearwater Florida. We look forward to sharing more special sunsets from our piece of paradise.

Wishing you a great upcoming week – remember not to get too hurried with all the holiday hustle and bustle to enjoy some old fashion fun with your family and friends.

From our family to your’s have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Gotta a local sunset – won’t you share?
