We drove from Orlando to Clearwater beach for the afternoon adventures and dinner, the drive was pretty amazing we are so much in love with the palm trees, so we busted music out loud and started singing ”Maroon 5: what lovers do” making memories. We finally made it to Tampa and all I wanted was to park asap and feel the sunshine on my face and walk on the beach, I have seen pictures of the sand so it was my time to experience all that beauty.
The most beautiful and clean beach ever, we loved it, it was 55 degrees but coming from wisconsin, we were not going to complain about the weather, we waited for the sunset while picking some seashells and build a sandcastle. There is also a busy playground nearby that Armani was happy to hang out with other kids.
This was definitely the highlight of the trip, seeing our daughter embracing the beautiful weather and feeling the sand in her feet, she was waiting on the sunset and slowly getting tired but she braved the cold and had fun.
The beach started getting busy with lots of people within 10 min professional photographers, tourist, and local people came to view the sun going down!
A gentle reminder of why we travel and how fortunate we are to see so much of the world.
Every day’s an adventure when I step out of my door.
The great thing about this germ is how it changes with the season, we really enjoyed this trail in the spring my daughter used to adore the wildflowers, and chasing the ducks around the park, then we came in the summer the trail was shaded all the way and gorgeous but the mosquitoes were brutal.
we came here in the fall and the colorful leaves on the trail was just gorgeous and few bugs around fall season, this trail in the winter is my favorite because I enjoy quiet walks in the woods and a good view of Monona terrace and Capitol building and my baby will nap along the way.it’s family friendly and kid friendly, I can let my daughter walk as long as she is happy, or carry her and hike faster than I usually do with other people.
In the summer we love the playground it’s never crowded and they have clean restrooms for the public.
I usually don’t take any pictures on this hike because there is really nothing to capture it’s a walk along the woods.but once you reach the other sight along the lake I always take pictures of the lake with downtown.
In the winter the lake forms this icicles near the beach side.
If you plan to hike at Olin park in the winter will suggest you bring hiking poles, wear good hiking boots, because the trail gets slippery, there wasn’t much snow on the ground when we went, there was no need of snowshoes.
The trail is easy to follow, they have signs showing skiing trail and hiking trail, so pay attention where you going.
