Am spending the week in the Clearwater area visiting friends, thought I might need a day of peace and quiet poolside/beachside solo. Rather than staying in Clearwater I opted for a more understated/low key Sand Key. The beach is pretty but there is nothing to walk to or drive to unless you drive back over the bridge. I checked in early at 2 and headed to the pool. There wasn't a single lounge chair free. The shrieking, ball playing and water oozies...were out of control. The pool was TINY and there wasn't an empty spot in it. The towel guy also had free swim diapers-- I can only imagine what was IN the pool. The rinky dink walk up bar was a pathetic gazebo with a long line due to the fact that there was only 1 slow moving bartender. Couldn't read, got soaked (iphone wet too) by a pack of water gun toting monsters whose parents weren't particularly concerned with the vacation experience of others. Despite my desperate desire to relax-- the beach was kind of a hike and once I got down there there weren't any free chairs. Pathetic, but I came upstairs, showered and put on pjs. Quiet in here..but the "furnished balcony" has a flimsy lawn chair..I'm staring at a tennis court and a sliver of bay...somehow I cannot figure out where water front is? Maybe I could bring the chair down to the pool tomorrow??
