Hoping your week has treated you well. Spent the last couple days getting back to normalcy after being in Florida earlier in the week. It’s always nice to go down to visit family and get refreshed on the beach.
We deviated from our usual travel itinerary and stayed at a condo we found on Airbnb. Boy am I glad we did! It was a nice 5 minute walk from the beach which added some extra time to our beach days. Normally we stay by the Tampa airport and would have about a 30 minute drive each way to Clearwater Beach. Being close also meant we could have sunset walks on the beach after dinner.
Another reason we chose the condo was so we could host brunch on Mother’s Day. We had a fully stocked kitchen and lots of room for us all to hang out in. If you didn’t want to be inside then there was an amazing deck overlooking the water outside. The weather was beautiful too! Sunny with a cool breeze. Perfect weather and so much nicer than hanging at a hotel.
This was our first time using Airbnb and I wanted to try out the experience before using it in Italy in a few months. I used the same parameters to book this stay as I did when booking the Italy lodging. If this was an indication to what we’ll have to look forward to then I don’t think we went wrong!
Along with the great stay we also had great food at Frenchy’s. It’s our favorite place in Clearwater Beach. My go to is the grouper sandwich and I had it all 4 times we went there. Hubs tried to get something new every time but always ended up with some sort of grouper nuggets dish. And yes you read that right, we ate there 4 times. It’s so good!
I can always use a little motivation to get my week going…more so this week!
