Day 11 - goodbye Disney, hello Gulf coast

Today we pack up and leave Tuscana Apartments and take a 90 minute drive west via Tampa to Indian Rocks beach where we have a beach apartment booked for 3 nights at Sun 'n' Fun.

The apartment is pretty old by US standards dating from 1925, and to be honest, it shows and could do with some investment on internal fixtures and fittings. You can't however fault the location as Indian Rocks is a quite area between Clearwater Beach and St. Pete's beach on a very narrow strip of land barely wide enough for the road. The beach is just out the back and is fantastic white fine sand leading to the Gulf of Mexico sea, a haven for Dolphins, Pelicans etc.

After a quick play on the beach, we head off to explore nearby Clearwater Beach and make a plan for tomorrow before a meal out at nearby JD's, a very nice local restaurant.
