Things at the marina

Trying to stay off my legs (due to hip bursitis) but not wanting to stay at home, I headed out for the Dunedin marina and fishing pier early one morning in mid-November. I spent the morning just hanging out, sitting on benches watching the activity around the marina. From the shots above, it was pretty quiet that morning.

I did see a manatee cruising around the boats in the marina.

This anhinga was having fish for breakfast.

Some of the birds also hanging around the marina, a green heron and lots of pelicans.

A spotted sandpiper was digging around the exposed muck at the boat ramp.

Sunday night walk in Dunedin

I headed over to Dunedin fairly early for a long walk in late September. It was a hot sunny night. At least there was a breeze coming off the water.

The building above was built in 1927 and had been many things including several hotels up until the 60’s, It became Trinity Collage until 1988. It’s now run by the Marriott Corporation under the Fenway Hotel name.

It’s always a beautiful walk along the water here.

The pier is a perfect place to catch the sunset.

After dinner walk on the water.

This summer I’ve been going for a long walk on Sunday nights after an early dinner to get out of the house and stretch my legs. Just me and my phone. I’ve been taking some short road trips to go somewhere other than my neighborhood (even my neighborhood walls are closing in on me). There was a good chance of rain but I still headed over to Dunedin (a little less than 30 minutes from my house) to walk along the intercoastal waterway. The sun peaked out a few times during my walk but the above are the shots I got along my walk. Most of the people were at the pier or on main street so the neighborhood street I walked on was quiet. This won’t be my last walk here.

On the way home, stopped at a red light, the storm was moving in.

A small town feeling.

Dunedin is a small town that sits on the intercoastal waterway just north of Clearwater.  It’s an artistic town with cool shops and restaurants and doesn’t have any big hotels nor that touristy feeling. I went there for a Sunday night walk recently to get a cool breeze and change of scenery from my neighborhood. I stayed off main street though since the sidewalks can get crowded and now some of the sidewalk areas are being used for outdoor dining. I walked along the water and through some of the neighborhoods close by.

Scenes from Edgewater Park and the pier at the end of Main Street.

Lots of boat traffic out on the water. You can see the buildings on Clearwater Beach far south of the park.
