Clearwater Beach Sunset, Florida
A Beach Scene in Tampa Bay, Florida. The photo was taken by my friend, Vicki Norton, a fabulous photographer who specializes in shots of sunsets and using just her cell phone. She edits them completely using her phone.
From the Tampa Bay Times, article by Gabrielle Calise, 2019:
A lot has changed on Clearwater Beach since it first started being developed more than 100 years ago. It’s now a booming tourist attraction. It has been the setting of several movies. And it also receives consistent national praise, most recently being named the best beach in America by Trip Advisor for the second year in a row.
Ernest Tate first bought the island for just $200 back in the 1890s. It was only reachable by boat until 1917, when a 2-and-a-half mile bridge nicknamed “Old Rickety” was constructed. It started at the foot of Seminole Street and stretched down to where the Clearwater Recreation Center is now.
The bridge’s name comes from the noise that automobiles made as they came across the wood, said Susan Raineri of the Clearwater Historical Society. Workers at the island’s diner used to notify the kitchen when they heard the clacking of potential customers driving over the wooden bridge.
