Sometimes I like to go to the beach. The beach is a very calming and relaxing place to sit and think. I don’t like to sit in the sun and bake all day, and I don’t prefer to get in the water. In fact, I’m often afraid that sharks, crabs, or jellyfish will end up causing me harm. The only time I like to go to the beach is when I can spend all day in Clearwater, Florida. The Clearwater Beaches are the nicest beaches around the area. I live in Florida, so there are a lot of beaches in the area. I’ve been to Daytona, St Augustine, Miami, and Destin. Many of those areas have excellent tourist attractions and agreeable amenities. Still, none of them offer the views and night time stars. There is just something really nice about Clearwater Beach. When I’m feeling down or depressed, I drive over to the beach and listen to the waves. I like the sound of the water crashing on the sand. The sand on Clearwater Beach is pure white and the water is a pretty blue color. Whenever I feel sad, the beach always improves my mental health. I’m glad that Clearwater Beach is only an hour from my house. It’s probably not close to 60 miles, but the traffic heading to Tampa everyday seems to make the drive a whole lot longer. On a Saturday or Sunday, it can even take up to 75 minutes. That’s a long drive for me, especially when my mind is calm and relaxed. I often get sleepy if the traffic is moving too slowly.
