Three Rooker Island off the coast of Crystal Beach Florida, was our destination for a picnic lunch and an enjoyable couple of hours this past week.

There is nothing like being able to take off for a few hours of rest and relaxation. Packing a picnic lunch and loading everything into the boat doesn't take long and then we are on our way out to Three Rooker. The map below is from Google Maps.

Three Rooker Island was only a sandbar a few years back but the wind and waves decided to form another barrier island here, protecting Crystal … (15 comments)

This is the daddy snook, caught off Crystal Beach Florida yesterday! It was 38 inches, too long to keep IF it was in season, which it isn't, so it was a case of photograph and release.
Ronnie loves fishing and yesterday he caught two giant snook, one only two inches smaller than this beauty. That is just one of the advantages of living in the Crystal Beach and Palm Harbor Florida area.

crystal beach florida: Bottlenose Dolphin Wants To Play - I Love Living In Crystal Beach FL - 05/30/14 05:42 AM
I love living in Crystal Beach Florida and the bottlenose dolphin that wanted to play yesterday is just one more reason why! 

Unfortunately, there is no video to go with this since I was on my knees, hanging over the side of the boat. This adult sized bottlenose dolphin had circled the boat several times as he was enjoying his lunch of bait fish. I was having a blast watching him and Ronnie was laughing at me, reminding me that I needed to be careful that I did not fall out of the boat. 
The dolphin obviously realized how much … (9 comments)

crystal beach florida: Spring Means The Gulf Waters Off Crystal Beach Florida Are Warming Up - 03/15/14 11:07 AM
Spring means the Gulf of Mexico waters and Clearwater's intercoastal waterway off Crystal Beach Florida are warming up again! I love this time of year because we can go swimming once again and our favorite fish are making their way back down from the creeks to the open water.

What better way to spend a day then fishing and taking time to land on one of the many little islands that separate the Clearwater intercoastal waterway from the Gulf of Mexico for a dip in the refreshing clear waters? To top it off, snook are coming back into the open … (17 comments)

crystal beach florida: Another Beautiful January Day In Crystal Beach Florida - 01/20/14 03:15 PM
It was another beautiful January day here in Crystal Beach Florida. With temperatures at 70 degrees, blue skies and sunshine, it was indeed a perfect day for a late morning walk. 

My phone has been ringing off the hook for people looking for short term rentals here in our area but at this time of year, everything is booked through the end of March. Other than hotels, there is little chance for finding a condo or single family home on short term rental during the middle of the winter. Our Northern neighbors want to escape from the ice and cold … (14 comments)
