    We always take the sailboat south about 2 miles to the north side of the Clearwater to Clearwater Beach Bridge. We anchor up next to an island 'bout 4pm, start drinkin' and cookin'. Then we ALWAYS have fun watching the chaos as thousands... yes thousands of boats start arriving for the fireworks. (not as amusing as watching them all leave at the same minute, right when the fireworks are over... and they're all drunk too!)

    Couple chairs on the deck after dinner, watchin' the fireworks!

    Staying home safe and sound, probably do some BBQ and watch the neighbors shoot off some fireworks.......................

    The lake was great. Not crowded at all. The water was kinda low though , and lots of sandbard/reefs were marked. We went through 2 tanks of gas on both SeaDoos , and one tank on the Tri-toon cruiser. Thes things (the sea-doos) have at least a 15 gallon tank , as thats what was put into them on the second fill , prolly a bit bigger. All fuel and motor for a totally fun experience.

    I had such a blast on the Sea-doo that I told my wife I wanted one for my birthday/xmas/anniversary/everything else present. The water was great until about 3PM , so the last 3-4 hours were really rough riding , but fun as hell. I was on the smaller one , 130hp is what I was told it was rated at. The other was rated at 150hp supposedly.

    We also got to watch the rangers break up a beach party across the cove from us , dunno why though. Even though the music was loud , they were being pretty mellow I thought.
