Dunedin Sunset on Edgewater Drive

As I finished my shooting of the homes and the trail along Edgewater Drive, I looked back one more time. This shot is the culmination of a large group I took (See Nov. 14 post below for a few of them). You can see one of the benches, with the wavy line, that are sprinkled along the biking & walking path there. I truly had no idea just how well this would come out. I knew I had to try. It just seemed like one of those special moments. I hope you like it.

Dia de los Muertos in Dunedin?

This awesome sight can be found adorning a light pole in Downtown Dunedin. As it turns out, they have an annual "Winter Holiday Pole Decorating" contest, sponsored by The City of Dunedin and the Arts & Culture Advisory Committee. As crazy as it sounds, I like it! Here is an excerpt of what the official press release says about it all:

" The objective is to dress up Downtown Dunedin for the holidays and create a festive and sparkling, family-friendly atmosphere. Light poles are to be 'adopted' and decorated by the local merchants and organizations. The contest sponsors are seeking applicants to get into the holiday spirit and help 'dress up our city for the holidays.' "

Now I have to admit, the Dia de los Muertos theme seems to be at odds with Christmas and the Holiday Spirit, but then it is celebrated on the 1st and 2nd of November, so maybe it's not so out of sync after all?? And then, this pole IS just across the street from a Mexican restaurant!

Either way, it adds some great color and culture to an ordinary light pole! Here is a link to the Wiki entry on Day of the Dead.
I have to correct some earlier information now. In an earlier posting, click here, I posted a photograph of a light pole decorated with a Dia de los Muertos theme. In that post I described the City of Dunedin's Light Pole Decorating Contest. Foolishly, I assumed that pole was a part of that contest. So, when I walked by the other day, looking for more decorated light poles, the pole had changed! It was still decorated in a theme that seemed Mexican in origin, but it was NOT the same. So, I walked into the Mexican restaurant across the street to ask some questions.

The restaurant is called Casa Tina. When I asked about the light pole, I got the scoop. They had decorated that pole alright, but the Dia de los Muertos theme was for Halloween! They simply hadn't taken it down and put up the Christmas holidays theme decorations yet. I see, said the blind man! Casa Tina is a really cool place, and if you click here you can check out their website and their menu. And in a future post, I will show you more of the decorated light poles that I found! ******

Dunedin FL Downtown Pt II - Entrance

Welcome to Downtown Dunedin Florida! This welcoming entrance brings you into the area that I posted a photo of earlier. It is one of those downtown areas that has been made so welcoming and attractive that you would enjoy going for a walk here just to experience the feeling, as if all the dining and shopping choices we not even there :). But you might want to consider a Downtown Dunedin lunch while you are here! When you come to Dunedin, or the Greater Tampa Bay area, you will want to visit Dunedin's Downtown!

Logistically speaking, this area is less than a mile from the Dunedin Marina, Dunedin City Hall, Mease Dunedin Hospital, and lots of beautiful housing and Dunedin real estate (Lots of which I will be posting on this site in the future). Not to mention a wonderful waterfront trail for walking, biking or skating.

Dunedin Homes - WATERFRONT!

A beautiful example of Dunedin homes, Dunedin real estate. There are some fine, fine homes on the waterfront here. This house sits just across Edgewater Dr. from Clearwater Harbor. That is also the Intracoastal Waterway as it passes our area. Check below to see what their view is like. And yes, that's my shadow, stretching wraith-like across the road, reaching for the next good shot. The City Of Dunedin has done a great job of making this stretch of waterfront accessible. There is a beautiful walking/biking path right at the water's edge, complete with benches and trash cans. It makes for a wonderful place to catch the sunset... And if you are thinking relocation, this is a great place to sit and watch the boats go by.

Dunedin Loves Their Children

When I saw this sign it stopped me in my tracks. I thought how wonderful that politics and red tape did not prevent the City of Dunedin from posting this sign. And I thought, how can you not love a place that will post a sign like this? And speaking of great communities, I am very pleased to have been accepted into the City Daily Photo Community! I look forward to sharing with and learning from the members of this awesome global community.

Veterans Day - Dunedin FL

This is a Veterans Memorial monument in Dunedin, FL. It is located at the Dunedin Marina. I could have posted a picture of a downtown street scene, or some clouds, or some kids playing, and felt the same respect and gratitude for the veterans that have served our country. Because it is all about freedom. The freedom for children to play without fear, the freedom to walk down the street enjoying a conversation with a friend, the freedom to just lie on your back in a public park and watch the clouds pass by over head. I enjoy the opportunity to live free, and to enjoy all these things and more. And I thank you, Veterans of America, who have secured this freedom for us through your sacrifice and dedication.

Dunedin Moss Draped Trees

If you love the look of moss draped trees shading quiet neighborhood streets and lanes, you might like Dunedin! There are so many varieties of neighborhoods, there is something for everyone. Myself, I love the look. I love the feel of these streets. They seem so peaceful, so tranquil. Coming home to something like this after a day at the office is a great way to unwind. And then, living here in the center of everything that is Florida Wonderful, you get changed and head out for a taste of what makes life worth living.
