So many different things to see around the tip of Davis Islands where the small airport and yacht basin ends the island. From tiny boats, really big boats and tug boats the variety can keep you busy watching the sights all morning.
In one corner of the island, there’s a small dog beach next to the private airport. There wasn’t many dogs on the beach early one recent Saturday morning. I think it was just too hot. Even the water was warm.
I think this is my favorite. This sailboat had a handmade boat lift for it’s own rowboat.
Clearwater Beach sure has changed since we moved down to the area almost 15 years ago. The beach was still mostly Mom & Pop motels and now it’s all high-rise hotels and condos. Traffic and parking are insane so we rarely go over there. On Christmas afternoon we wanted to get out for a walk so we went to Sand Key beach which is just across the bridge from Clearwater beach. It was such a beautiful day that all of the beaches were crowded. All of the above were taken from Sand Key Park looking across at Clearwater beach and downtown Clearwater.

A beautiful day to walk around and admire all of the yachts in the basin.
Things you see driving along the inside channel across from Harbour Island.

Flowers along the channel.
I hadn’t been over to Davis Islands in downtown Tampa to walk around in a long time. I use to go over and walk around the yacht basin all the time. It is usually packed with joggers, dog walkers, bicycle riders and walkers. The morning I was there was very quiet. I guess because it was so hot outside that early.
