Gulf Coast Drive

From our RV park it was about an hour’s drive to the gulf coast going across the Tampa Bay on hwy 60 into Clearwater and across Clearwater Memorial Causeway to Clearwater Beach, a distinctively touristy place. Had a bite to eat and then headed down Gulf Blvd. to see what we could see. Not a lot of places where you could just pull over and walk around, so we made it all the way to Indian Rocks Beach before we got out and explored.


Definitely not the large, sandy beaches we had been accustomed to along the Atlantic and back in California. This beach had coarse, white sand, and broken seashells against the water.


I’m a sucker for birds, so was fascinated by this couple of Gulf Coast Seagulls.

We continued on down Gulf Blvd. to the Pinellas Bay way and on to Mullet Key and Fort Desoto State Park to Two Beaches Beach to cap off the day.

Grima’s gotta try it

End of day


So, more to come. Love to hear what you have to say about our travels.
