Pier 60 Clearwarter Beach Florida

Saturday, May 23, 2009

I will be posting vacation pictures for my friends and family for the next couple days. If you are looking for my recipe blog please check back the first week of June (summer is here and I have over 50 recipes I want to try, yeah baby)!

Today we went to Pier 60 in Clearwater Beach, Florida. This AMAZING beach is only an hour and fifteen minutes outside of Orlando. The sand was white and fine, the whole beach was clean, and the gulf water was blue and warm. It was so much fun! Definitely one of the best days of my life!

We got a nice grandma to take a family picture
Abbott collecting shells
Andrew burying his feet
Justin digging in the sand
Justin and the boys made an elaborate sand castle masterpiece! Here is the castle
... here they are making the river
... the boys digging the moat (really more of a lagoon, but let's call it a moat
... the boys filling the moat
Swimming in the ocean was so much fun!
Can you spot Abbott?
We even saw a couple of dolphins swimming with us! I wasn't fast enough to get a picture of them jumping but here you can see the top of the dolphin fin (it's way back there, to the right of the rocks)!
Justin loves Carrie... and yes, Carrie loooooooves Justin!

Glad you all are having such a great time!! It was probably nicer in FL than here in MO today... hot, humid, and muggy! Bleh!! I like the picture of all the boys working on the 'moat' - they all look very focused on their jobs. :) And at least you were swimming with dolphins and not sharks!!
