It was a beautiful Florida winter day, so I decided to grab my camera and head over to Indian Rocks Beach on the Gulf Coast. The wind was blowing off the Gulf, making it a pleasant walk as I did my version of shell collecting. I like to leave them for everyone to enjoy, so I just take pictures to carry them with me.
While the perfect ones are pretty, its the ones that are slightly broken that I really like, because they still have beauty in their imperfections.
I don’t want you to think I ignored the water. I let the soothing shushing sound act as background noise.
And no trip to the beach is ever complete without the presence of those loud, squawking beach combers, seagulls.
I parked at the 17th street public park, where parking is $2 for 2 hours. Plenty of time to soak up the sun and let stress slip away for a bit. A trip to Indian Rocks Beach should be on your list if you’re visiting the Clearwater/St. Petersburg area.
