We spent a short weekend at Clearwater Beach in mid-October. It was quiet, relaxing and warm. Just the perfect beach vacation. We were here in March for almost a week but I totally did not have time to blog about it. We had lots of fun then though. It is fortunate that my current project is in Tampa so it was only an hour's drive to Clearwater Beach.

This entry will mostly be beach photos with few remarks. I miss the warm and the sunshine as I'm sitting here writing this in Ohio (in December!). Ah well.

We arrived on Friday evening and went straight to the beach to enjoy the water and the sunset.

Look how clear the water is
Running and playing
Adik embraces the water?
Love this shot of Yaya with the hotel in the background
Water on his arms
Yaya confidently strides through the waves

Then it was Saturday.

All day at the beach, baby! Speaking of beach babies:

My beach babies all sunblocked up the wazoo
Adik chooses some toys to borrow
Literally Fun in the Sun
La playa
Yaya plays with a bucket in the sea
Adik is loving the warm water
Pouring water on Yaya
Gorgeous day at the beach
Do not disturb. Child seriously at play.

At the playground right next door to the hotel they have set up a huge water slide. Guess who begged and begged to go on it:

Intrepid Yaya climbs all the way up

Sadly neither Vin nor I were together enough to get photos of the girl coming down. I do have a video of it somewhere though.

Adik comes down the little slide...
...and enjoys the swings
Is that bird going to fly into the setting sun?
Fake pirate ship and real bird

That evening we were not supposed to go swimming again but Yaya and Adik both wanted to spend some time at the beach (and you know I can't resist a good beach either) so we went to hang out while it was still light.

And then it was Sunday. We asked for a late checkout and got back out to the beach for some more fun.

Playing together
Even Papa is happy!
Seriously, see how clear that water is?
Yaya has the bucket
And now Adik has the bucket too

Sadly we had to leave and go back to the work hotel. Back to work people! But we sure had a good time at Clearwater Beach. :-) Until next time!
