In the past, I traveled to southern Florida in the winter, where in the tropics you are usually guaranteed warm weather and sunshine, but this year I went to Clear Water Beach, much further north in the sunshine state.
Although at the time, the weather was not as warm as I would have liked, due to a cold spell, it was warm enough to walk the beach, bicycle and eat at outside cafes, a welcome change from the frozen Midwest tundra I had left behind.
Clear Water Beach has something for everyone. It has a beautiful clean beach, an amusement park for kids, and trendy local restaurants and nightclubs to play in at night.
One of my favorite things to do is to photograph clouds, so I quickly took this opportunity to snap a picture of the incoming clouds one rainy afternoon. Luckily I was able to soak up some sun before the clouds appeared.
