Village (Johns Pass) #AtoZChallenge #blogboost

Johns Pass Village is on Madeira Beach on the west coast of Florida, near St. Petersburg.

Created by a hurricane on September 27, 1848, it sits on a pass connecting the Gulf of Mexico with Boca Ciega Bay.  It's named after John Levique, a pirate, who is said to have been the first person through the pass after the hurricane.  It is a fishing village and a tourist attraction, and if you are after beautiful beach related scenery, you are in the right place.  It's child friendly, too.

Now that's a sunset.

Sitting on the dock of the pass, a bird watches the tide roll away.
It isn't all beauty.  Being a fisherperson is a dangerous job.  Some don't make it home.
And speaking of seagulls, I decided not to tempt them with an ice cream cone.

Seagulls or not, this village was a wonderful place for a New Yorker to visit in January.

Day 25 of the Ultimate Blog Challenge #blogboost and "V" day on Blogging from #AtoZChallenge.  My theme "Florida Outside the Theme Parks".

  3. I think the gulls in Florida are much more aggressive than the ones I see on Long Island

  4. Such beautiful pictures. I'd love to go there sight-seeing for sure. I don't like to go on boats and cannot see land. Guess the Titanic movie put a big-time scare in me. Huge phobia of that, but I do love to look for real & pics of the water. Sometimes if I go to like Lake Michigan for example and you can see water for as far as you can see.. no land... I get weak kneed and the shakes. Must turn around and feel the land under me and see the land behind me. WHEW! Your are beautiful for sure! Thanks for sharing.

  5. That sign reminded me of the time a gull attacked our cones when we were traipsing around Long Beach.
