Memorial Day weekend started out beautiful on Florida’s west coast. The string of barrier islands that lie off the coast of St Pete/Clearwater stretches for some 50 miles. The pass from the inland bay to the Gulf separating Madeira Beach from Treasure Island is called John’s Pass. On the northern side is a delightful collection of shops, restaurants, and waterfront concessions. Daughter Vikki and I kicked off our summer there with a frappuccino on the boardwalk.
