In search of the Perseids

I had wanted to attend the Perseid Meteor Shower Night Walk in Dade Battlefield Historic State Park as recommended by the Tampa Bay Times.  That was until I realized the park was over an hour’s drive from my house. In general, my favorite place to stargaze is just outside the Sand Pearl Resort on Clearwater Beach.  It’s close to where I live, and they light bonfires nightly in their beachfront fire pit.  It’s urban stargazing at its best.  As you can see below, I didn’t capture any meteors, but I enjoyed the visit nonetheless.
