Beautiful Corey Avenue, St. Pete Beach, FL is holding a Craft Festival today (March 31 to April 1 2012). The street is packed with local artists, crafts, unusual gifts – a great place to go if you are looking for the perfect gift to take home.
Corey Avenue is a wonderful place to stroll along visiting the local stores and enjoy a refreshing drink or meal.
Seems you can not go far without spotting either Selena Gomez (with or without) boyfriend Justin Bieber or co-stars Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson.
This video was taken on Corey Avenue, St Pete Beach, FL during the filming of the new movie Spring Breakers.
Just among my small circle of friends there have been many sightings of the stars including:
Selena and Justin were spotted last week eating ice-cream in Treasure Island.
Selena and Vanessa popped in for a nice cool beverage at the Undertow Beach Bar on St Pete Beach
Selena was seen walking on the beach – numerous times.
Do you want to see Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber or Vanessa Hudgens?
Just drive along the Gulf Blvd. from Pass-A-Grille, St. Pete Beach to Treasure Island and look out for parked trucks and signs saying “crew”. That means they are filming in that area. Now just look for a crowd of young people (usually in bikinis) and the stars are not far away. Hang around where they are filming and you might even end up in the movie Spring Breakers.
Do you want to be an extra in the movie Spring Breakers?
I have heard (according to CBS Tampa) that they are looking for around 500 college kids to be in a shoot on Wednesday 21, 2012. Try emailing email@example.com with a photo and you may have a chance. Oh, you have to be a resident of the Tampa bay area, over 18, and look great in beach wear. Good luck 🙂
We took this video of Dolphins jumping and surfing the wake while on the Dolphin Racer boat in beautiful St Pete Beach Florida. I have never seen so many Dolphins playing and leaping behind any other Dolphin watch boat before.
We recently went out on the Dolphin Racer boat, and to be honest despite their brochure showing Dolphins jumping out of the water we presumed it was a typical Dolphin watch tour – yep, we expected to see a Dolphin or two but we were excited to see pods of them leaping into the air and jumping in the wake of the bright yellow boat!
The Dolphin Racer boat takes you from St Pete Beach to Johns Pass and back. The trip takes about two and a half hours traveling along the beautiful scenic bay and ocean.
Dolphin watching is one of my favorite things to do on St. Pete Beach. Visit the water often enough and you will see them and if you are lucky they will be jumping and playing. However if you haven’t got many lazy days to spend staring at the ocean then take my advice and book a trip on the Dolphin Racer boat – they guarantee you will see Dolphins surfing the wake – or you get a free trip!
I can honestly say this is the best Dolphin watch boat I have ever been on – and I have been on a lot. It was as if the Dolphins were putting on a show just for us – awe-inspiring!
Watching Dolphins jumping and surfing the waves is cool at places like SeaWorld but seeing them in their natural environment is an experience not to be missed.
