Causeway Isles, along with its neighboring community Yacht Club Estates, is a waterfront community located on the far west side of St. Petersburg just before crossing over to Treasure Island.  The homes range in price from $150,000 (off the water) to over $2 million (luxury homes on the water).  Most homes in the communities were built in the 50's and 60's, but there are also several newer homes built on these beautiful waterfront lots. This waterfront neighborhood has over 400 single family homes and no businesses.  On the south side the community consists of several waterfront "fingers" leading back to prestigious Yacht Club Estates.  The north side consists of one street on the gorgeous open waters of Boca Ciega Bay. Causeway Isles Neighborhood Association has voluntary membership. ...

St. Petersburg, FL - Kenwood-Melrose Community - A Lovely multi-family home in distress is at long last on it's way to a new owner! This one's been on (again, off again) the negotiating table for nearly a year...an example of everything that can go right and wrong in this tricky market, and the New World of short sales and bank-owned property purchases. The seller has become a dear friend, after several difficult years of falling rents and rising repairs on her hoped-for future-retirement property.  This was one of the short sale stories you don't often hear about--legitimate claim of not only financial loss, but health issues, employment issues, and the like. This was an example of "The Little Guy" who has been so thoroughly decimated by market conditions and shrinking property values...

The Festival of Reading will be held in downtown St Petersburg this Saturday, October 24, 2010 from 10 am to 4 pm at USF St Petersburg. More than 40 authors, including Michael Connelly, will be reading and signing their books. The festival used to be held at Eckerd College but has grown a lot over the years. Visit the USF waterfront campus in downtown St Pete and take the opportunity to meet and talk with Florida authors and to buy books and have them autographed.   Correction:  Saturday is October 23rd!

The 25th anniversary celebration of the movie "Cocoon" in St Petersburg is scheduled for October 19 and 20 in St Petersburg. Tuesday night is a VIP Reception and Party at the Princess Martha Hotel and Wednesday is both a Tea Dance at the St Petersburg Coliseum and an Open House at the Mirror Lake Complex. The film won an Academy Award for special effects. Not only do we remember the local scenes, but there was quite an array of start in the film: Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy, Don Amece (who won an Oscar), Brian Dennehy, Wilford Brimley, Tyrone Power Jr and others. Barbara Harrington had helped recruit retirees as extras, and when the director saw them, he sent her out for older, more decrepit extras. Hernando De Soto was looking for the Fountain of Youth in Florida back in the early 15...

How is the weather in Saint Petersburg Tampabay? Everybody wants to know what the weather is in Saint Petersburg.  I don't care much about degrees, neither Celsius nor Fahrenheit, I like to know what the weather feels like and what I have to wear. So, this Saint Petersburg weather page is for all people that need more "practical" information and not just temperatures.  Between December and March it can get cold in Tampabay. Won't hurt to bring a sweater or two. It is winter in Florida and believe me, it can get cold. When you wake up in the morning and want to go for a walk on the beach, you will need a jacket or one of these big wrap around fashionable blankets. Around 10 am or so, the sun gets a little strong and before you know, it is T shirt time and by noon it is bathing suit time....

Raincamp in Orlando this week was great.   First, it was a very positive experience with lots of great ideas.  However, the two (we assume Realtors) people on the stalled esculator calling for help was a perfect description of the industry and the market that is our real world.  That was a very creative message.  Thanks.  Bill Blackburn, St.Petersburg.

St Petersburg, FL is the home of a first permanent museum quality collection of works by Dale Chihuly. 7,600 square foot bay front space in the Morean Art Center is devoted to the works of this Seattle based glass blowing artist. While the space itself is large, the collection is divided into smaller more intimate galleries. The collection at display is estimated to be worth $6 million and requires daily cleaning by professional glass cleaners. The pieces are truly breathtaking and this is a must see for anyone living or visiting the Tampa Bay area. You will not be disappointed! The exhibit hours and admission fees are as follows.
