clearwater beach, fl: best sand in the country

Upon our arrival into Florida we were welcomed with sunny skies, 75 degree weather and an ocean front hotel.

We were working in Tampa, but decided to spend 1 glorious night in Clearwater Beach sleeping to the sound of waves crashing out our perched open balcony door.

There's nothing like falling asleep and waking up to waves smashing into the shoreline. Nothing.

We ate lunch and dinner at Frenchy's Rockaway Grill on the beach -- the grouper egg rolls and ahi salad were to die for!

Walking to dinner...
