Clearwater Beach Trip!

So I just returned from Clearwater Beach Florida for my Halloween themed photo shoot I've had an incredible time at the photo shoot but I also wanted to share my experience in Clearwater Florida with you.

Clearwater is the most beautiful beach that I have been to. That's not really saying too much because I have not been outside of the US but this beach is known for it's Beautiful Clear water and white soft sand.

I went to Clearwater a couple years back visiting my BFF who is living there doing work I immediately fell in love with Clearwater Beach I just found it to be so calm and so beautiful that I just really wanted to go back so I am very glad that I was able to return to Clearwater for my photo shoot.

I only stayed in Clearwater for a couple of days but it was truly a wonderful time unfortunately on the other side of the country people are getting hit hard by hurricane Harvey I was worried that the hurricane would affect the weather on her vacation and that we would be stuck inside however it was nothing but sunshine both days that we were there in Clearwater

We flew in late Thursday night and arrived at our hotel at like 1 AM on Friday morning that hotel was in Tampa so that we wouldn't have a long drive to Clearwater that early in the morning at that point we had both been tired from the flight and my friend from working all day that I am very glad we chose a local hotel to stay at. I was so sick that night I had a really bad cold and I could not breathe at all. I finally fell asleep at about 6 AM and woke again at around 8 AM then we decided to pack up all of her things check out of that hotel and head to Clearwater. 

We had breakfast at IHOP because it was affordable and good food and the service was great to to be honest it was a really good experience at that IHOPlocation. Then we headed over to our second hotel the problem was this was really early in the morning and our check in time wasn't until like 3 PM we went to the hotel which we caught we stayed at the Magnuson Hotel. We were unable to check into our room right away but we were able to use their restroom to change into our swimsuits to kill time in the ocean so tragic right. 

The water was so beautiful so green very very calm and a really nice temperature almost too warm but definitely not too cold. We stayed in the water for a few hours well it seemed like a few hours perhaps only an hour and a half before we were finally able to check into our room.

Our hotel was really nice we had a great view of the pool from our door and the pool was very clean and really comfortable to swim in after we checked in we changed and ran to the local grocery store so we could grab some snacks and drinks for us while we were in the room it's very important to stay hydrated not just all the time but when you were on vacation as well. the salt water getting in my mouth made me so thirsty I would've died without having water anyway but it's very important to drink water constantly when you're in excessive heat it was pushing 90° while we were there...at least that's how it felt. 

While we were in the ocean we saw this pirate ship sailing off to the distance I love pirate ships and immediately wanted in I knew I had to go on this pirate ship before we left town

After we had lunch we decided to go back into the water while we waited to go on a pirate cruise. I don't know why wanted to go on this pirate ship so badly but I really think Pirates are so cool and it looked like a really relaxing trip.  The pirate cruise here in Clearwater Florida cost $40 per person kand around $20 per child even for babies you have to pay $11.  It is a two hour cruise with all you can drink beer and wine for the adults and soft drinks for the kiddos.  The cruise was really fun and relaxing we were also able to see dolphins swimming together while on the cruise. This of course was my favorite part and made it definitely worth my time and money.

 After returning from the pirate cruise we had something to eat and then of course went right back to the ocean this time we had round floating rings that were really comfortable I nearly fell asleep in the ocean. The sunset was absolutely beautiful but it began to get chili quickly and with me being a little bit sick still I was really tired and had to go inside I was ready to relax for the evening and get started on Saturday. 

Saturday was probably the best day the weather was perfect we were settled in in our area and comfortable about where things were the ocean was right across the street and we were ready to have fun I got a much better nights sleep than I did on Thursday nightwhich made me 10 times better on Saturday morning. We had IHOP for breakfast again best food around good prices everything was great. 
We had a little mishap with my friends phone so we spent the morning at Verizon in Clearwater replacing it. Once we replaced her phone we were able to go back to the hotel with a clear conscious get ready to get in the water.

We Spent the rest of saturday switching between the ocean and the pool. It was probably the best day that we had there. Very relaxing and low key. 
For dinner, we ate at this fun restaraunt on the beach called Frenchies bar and grill and I got this amazing scallop dish that tasted delicious. I loved the atmostphere of the restaraunt but we had to pay to park there which I did NOT like. Other than that, it was lots of fun and a great place if you want a view. 

Sunday was a day of adventures as well. Although we were headed back to Tampa for the photo shoot, we decided to stop by the aquarium to see Winter-from the movie A dolphins Tale.
