While taking a vacation/break in the Tampa Bay/Clear Water Beach area, I decided to make my way down to Anna Maria Island. Now, I have been to quite a few beaches in my life (e.g. Bahamas, Pompano Beach, La Jolla, etc.) but I must say, this is probably the most gorgeous (and secluded) place I have ever visited. The water was crystal clear blue, the weather was a gorgeous, humidity free 88F degrees and I had all the sun I could handle. All I can say is this: paradise.
