If so, there are houses fairly near to the water that will fit the bill. Or do you prefer condo living? Right on the Dunedin Causeway, about as close as you can get to the water are several condo communities. Some of these are 55+ communities, such as the Royal Stewart Arms. Royal Stewart Arms is almost at the entrance to Honeymoon Island state park, the most visited park in Florida. These condos have a no pets policy, thus are quiet. There is also a community clubhouse for gatherings, social events and meetings. The tennis courts are available to residents and are in excellent condition. The very best feature is the view of the intra coastal waterway, with Caladesi Island and Clearwater Beach to the south and views of Honeymoon Island , St. Joseph Sound and Three Rooker Bar to the north. Almost daily, along the sea wall, one can see dolphins casually swimming, and sometimes leaping, in the water, often within a few yards of the sea wall. The community fishing pier is a great place for neighbors to gather to chat, relax and even wet a line in the hopes of catching dinner. The water is full of speckled trout (really in the drum family), redfish, flounder, and depending on the time of year, tarpon, Spanish mackerel and in the summer, plenty of smallish sharks. Each condo in the Royal Stewart Arms has its own condo association with its separate rules and regulations, so if you decide to purchase a condo, make sure to obtain a copy of the proper documents.

There are also condos on the mainland, which are fifty-five plus. They also have a no pets policy.

Several restaurants provide al fresco dining, including the Cafe Al Fresco, which offers inside and outside dining and is at the intersection of the Pinellas bike trail and Main Street. Other restaurants include everything from superb barbeque to gourmet Italian food to New York Pizza to the Black Pearl, a Mobile Travel Guide rated establishment. Should you decide to eat there, be sure to secure reservations in advance.

Since we are on the lifestyle tangent, the Pinellas bike trail is more than 50 miles of paved bicycle and pedestrian trails that go from Tarpon Springs in the north to St. Petersburg to the south, with off shoots along the Anclote River that have picnic tables, a section that goes out on the Dunedin Causeway to Honeymoon Island and various other interesting little detours. For those who like to experience good food along their bike routes, there is just about the best barbeque anywhere at Eli’s Barbeque.

Ribs and chicken to go or sit at one of the picnic tables and enjoy a wonderful meal right there where it is cooked. Back to the living situation.
