Sorry I was away for awhile. I was working straight 3 nights in a row. In fact I am very sleepy and drowsy as of this very moment while writing my blog post. I feel bad missing all your posts, but I promise I will check out your blogs one by one and see what I missed. For the meantime, I will be sharing our short getaway to Treasure Island in St.Petersburg Florida.
What I love about St.Petersburg Beaches is they are not as congested as Siesta keys, but not too remote like Anna Maria Island. I heard Anna Maria Island is also very lovely and quiet, but I am having a hard time looking for a good place to stay.
The place is very quiet with few people walking around, and the sand is fine and soft. The color of the sand is more of a grayish white. There are not much shells under the water so you don’t have to worry walking barefoot. The water is sooo clean and we enjoyed swimming in the beach. However, the waves are very strong. If you are taking your kids with you, you have to watch them closely. 🙂
We drove 4 hours to reach Treasure Island. From our accommodation you only need to drive 1 more hour to get to Clearwater Beach. Maybe next time we will drive further north to spend a night or two in Clearwater Beach, I just read in an article that Clearwater Beach is one of the Top 10 Beaches in America from the Travel Channel. But anyway, St Petersburg Beaches and Clearwater Beach share the same emerald water from the Gulf of Mexico.
I hope you will enjoy watching our short travel video. At the end you will see Wifeblah struggling with the waves. lol
I am contemplating where to go next: Clearwater beach or Siesta Key? What do you think?
