Florida's beautiful waterbirds include the Little Blue Heron. I had to do some research on this beautiful bird that I discovered in Eagle Lake Park, in Largo Florida. He stood patiently, poising for his photo shoot and let me take several shots. I had no idea what he was and did a little research this morning to educate myself.  It seems these birds breed all along the Gulf Coast, through the Caribbean Islands, Central America and all the way down to Peru and Uruguay. I don't think I have ever seen one sitting so patiently, allowing a human to get up close and personal for a photo shoot and had to share.

Eagle Lake Park located on Keene Road in Largo Florida is a beautiful 163-acre park that once belonged to the Taylor family. This pioneering family raised cattle and had orange groves. Many of these trees are still growing in the park. Pinellas County purchased two sections which now comprise the park back in 1998 and 2006. Now county park-goes can enjoy the picnic shelters, playground, fishing piers and miles of hiking trails. The fishing is catch and release only. Here you can also bring man’s best friend and let your pet romp in the enclosed dog park with other visitor’s pets. Outside of the enclosed dog park, dogs must be on a leash at all times. This natural habitat includes over 2,000 feet of well maintained boardwalks over beautifully restored wetlands. Convenient to both north a...

Spontaneous, To Be or Not To Be...   It's 11:00 am Saturday morning and we are on our way from Sunset Beach, North Carolina to Largo, Florida.  This isn't exactly what I had in mind for this weekend, I had planned to hit the gym, do a little yard work, and watch some football.  So why am I on my way to Florida instead?  We are on our way to Florida because last evening Karen found online a cream puff 2004 Red Sebring Convertible, with only 26,000 miles in Largo, Florida.   We confirmed the car was available this morning, asked our neighbor to look after our pooches and jumped in the car and headed south. Our question to you is, are you spontaneous, are you willing to change your plans or take a trip in a moments notice?   We have always considered ourselves to be spur of the moment peop...

Most people living in Largo, FL, do not have a house or a condo with a dock on the water, so when people think Living in Largo, the do normally not think Living and Boating in Largo, FL! Largo is in Central Pinellas, and although the Bayou and Bardmoor Area and many other surrounding neighborhoods offer beautiful houses and condos, barely any of them are on boatable water. But Pinellas County has made it easy to combine living in Largo, FL and boating. Many boaters have their boats at marinas, or they keep them on a trailer that they park or store somewhere, like my family does. We make boating a part of our fabulous Floridian lifestyle!   Since we have our boat on a trailer, we use the public boat ramps that are all over Pinellas County to go boating. One of the few options for boating...

New Atlantis Club Condos do indeed offer waterfront living at it's best. My German clients own a condo down in New Atlantis Club in Largo Florida and we have it rented once again. As a matter of fact, the renter - a college professor - is coming into town today and I will be meeting him down there to give him the gate card and keys to the place. This gated waterfront condo community is right on the intercoastal waterway and offers kayak storage. There are two pools, a hot tub, tennis courts and it is convenient to just about everything!

The Bayou Club in Largo is an upscale, gated community of single family homes, and the biggest of its kind in Central Pinellas. There are just over 400 single family homes total, they are nestled along a Tom Fazio designed championship golf course. Driving or walking in The Bayou Club gives you a park-like feeling, with tall trees lining the streets, the winding roads, the lakes and ponds and open green spaces.     My family and I spend a wonderful afternoon and evening at a “Pre-“ 4th of July party at The Bayou Club in Largo, FL on July 3rd.      Our hosts decorated their house in the American spirit, to celebrate our Nation’s Birthday, they flew the American flag, and greeted us with patriotic balloons.   The hostess had a beautiful fresh flower arrangement in patriotic colors on her...

When my husband and I moved to the area by Largo, FL in January of 2002, we knew that living in Largo, FL and boating would somehow have to go hand-in-hand for us. We moved to Florida from Chicago, couldn’t afford a house on the water with a dock, but knew that we would want to make boating part of our new, Floridian lifestyle. In the fall of 2002 we bought a smaller boat, a 19 ft. Regal, and have been happily boating ever since.   Most people living in Largo, FL, do not have a house or a condo with a dock on the water, Largo is in Central Pinellas, and although the Bayou and Bardmoor Area and many other surrounding neighborhoods offer beautiful houses and condos, barely any of them are on boatable water. But Pinellas County has made it easy to combine living in Largo, FL and boating wi...

The Homes at Copperleaf is a subdivisions within The Bayou Club in Largo, FL, and consists of 60 single family homes.

We closed on another condo on Monday and today a tenant completed the condo association forms to rent it out! I can't blame her for moving fast on this condo since it is located in a great community that is right on Largo's intercoastal waterway! The condo was purchased furnished! The previous owners had rented it seasonally when they were not using it themselves. That made it perfect for the new tenant that moved down from Michigan and left all of her belongings in storage up there. She is renting on an annual basis which is perfect for my clients! It has been a really busy year so far and seems to be gathering momentum as we move into the Fall months! If you are considering purchasing in Florida, don't wait too long! Condo sales are up 10% over a year ago and the sales prices are up 7...
