Palm Harbor Florida's 34685 zip code currently has 20 condos on the market - 10/2014 I have not seen so few condos on the market in a long time! With only twenty condos on the market in the Palm Harbor Florida area east of Lake Tarpon, you know people are going to have a difficult time finding something. That is why it is so important to work with a Realtor. The Palm Harbor Florida 34685 condos on the market range from a low of $55,900 for a small one bedroom one bath to $178,000 for a 4 bedroom 4 bath condo built in 1981. There are indeed opportunities to be had and with the gulf beaches only a short drive away, it only makes sense to purchase now before prices go up any further. Give me a call today to look for condos in Palm Harbor Florida's 34685 zip code!

This beautiful Palm Harbor Florida home went under contract yesterday.  Located near the Pinellas Trail and St Joseph's Sound, this brand new Huntington Home will be complete prior to closing. It is still in need of the final punch out list and completing installation of the hot tub.  My clients are in love with this well constructed Huntington Home in Palm Harbor Florida 34683.

This beautiful Huntington Home in Palm Harbor Florida is under contract and set to close in August. There is nothing that can compare with new construction and Huntington Homes have an excellent reputation. The current owner, William O'Neal, has followed in his father's footsteps and built a home that my clients will be proud to own! If you are interested in new home construction in the Palm Harbor Florida area, give me a call today and let us discuss your plans.

Sun rise over  John Chesnut Park in Palm Harbor Florida is the best time of day to be in the park during the summer  months. With temperatures in the 90's in the afternoon, I cannot think of a better time to take my walks than the EARLY morning hours. John Chesnut Park in Palm Harbor Florida has miles of boardwalk and shell paths that meander around the lake and through the forest. A beautiful place to start the day!

Mama Gator was just hanging out under the boardwalk, guarding her nest of eggs. It was pure chance that we spotted her in the water and Ron kept saying 'don't drop your iPhone' as I clicked away a few photos. My comment was that if she swallowed it, I would use his phone to call myself. That should confuse her! Glad I did not drop it!

Palm Harbor Florida's Lake Tarpon has some extremely large bass and what better time to go bass fishing than sunrise? That is when this video was made, as the sun started to rise in the East and the local fishermen were already out in their boats, attempting to catch the first bass of the day.

This is a great morning view of Lake Tarpon in Palm Harbor Florida. We were on top of the observation tower when I took this photo. The sun was just beginning to come up over the lake and there were fishermen out already, hoping to catch bass. Naturally, this is the best time to walk since we are now in summer and it is hot and humid down here.

Bambi was having breakfast in John Chesnut Park located on the shores of Lake Tarpon in Palm Harbor Florida and wasn't going to be disturbed by my photographing. I actually had to tell Bambi 'hey, pick up your head' since my whistling and clicking sounds were ignored. Guess this little one is used to having humans around. If you get to John Chesnut Park in Palm Harbor Florida early enough, you are sure to see Bambi or his mother - or another family member - enjoying their breakfast. Perhaps that is one of my favorite places to take my walks.

A few days ago I wrote a blog and posted photos of mama gator in John Chesnut Park in Palm Harbor Florida but now have to share the before and after photos with you! Before the park realized that they had a mama gator - a LARGE mama gator - right next to the boardwalk with a nest of eggs  (covered but you can see the mound) that she was protecting, you could take photos of her easily. I am guessing that most people do not realize that they CAN jump and are extremely fast for short periods. Perhaps people were reaching across the boardwalk railing for photos or even lifting up children that the little ones could see mama gator. Little ones look like an appetizer to mama gator, so NOT a good idea.   Anyway, the park has put up a fence now with signs that there is a gator there and it is d...

I really love John Chesnut Park in Palm Harbor Florida, so here are a few more photos of our early morning walks there. We walk along the boardwalk, which is easier on your feet than concrete trails or asphalt roads. The boardwalk meanders through the swamp areas and there you can see gators as well as deer. When you walk the shell pathways, the animals hear you coming and get out of the way, but when you are quiet and stick to the grass, you have a better chance of coming up on something special. There are so many deer in the park as well as a variety of birds and more gators than most people realize! John Chesnut Park in Palm Harbor Florida is a great place to spend the day with the family since there are picnic facilities and playgrounds as well as volleyball in the sand. What else c...

John Chesnut Park in Palm Harbor Florida is home to Florida deer. It is amazing what you can see when you get out early in the morning. The gates open at 7 am and that is the best time to see Florida deer that live right in the park. This photo of mama deer was taken as she waited for her little fawn to come back from his wanderings. He had gone over a bridge and could not figure out how to get back to mama. Luckily, we were able to go in the other direction and guide him back over the bridge. You have to keep your eyes sharp to find the beautiful animals that reside right in John Chesnut Park in Palm Harbor Florida, on the east side of lovely Lake Tarpon.
