Charles Redington intended "A classier residential area," said newspaper
stories, with chiefly private homes. Its 1,700 residents, a number that does
not vary much, have fought through the years to keep it that way.
The temperature is mild, the central West Coast of Florida in the
Clearwater/St. Petersburg/Tampa Bay area enjoys a semi tropical
climate with warm Gulf breezes and plenty of sunshine. Frequent
thunderstorms, short in duration, dominate the summertime weather
patterns, where humidity usually hovers near the 100 percent mark.
Even with these frequent summer storms, however, this area of the
state enjoys the most days of sunshine per year - with an average of
361. June through September are the wettest months, with the rest
of the year being pretty dry by comparison. The most pleasant weather
is found during the winter months between November and March when
the humidity becomes more bearable and winds from the Bay and
Gulf keep temperatures moderate.
