I came here to see these guys play. Rathkeltair is a Celtic-Rock band that grew out of the Tampa Bay Area. If you're not familiar, Tampa Bay has a longstanding Celtic history. The band members are Nick Watson and Neil Anderson, original members of 7 Nations, Trevor Tanner, former frontman of 80’s UK The Bolshoi, and international recording artist Collier Hyams.
~ St. Pete Beach, Florida ~
Across the Intracoastal Waterway from St. Petersburg is its touristy sister, St. Pete Beach. St. Pete Beach (officially not called St. Petersburg Beach) is a lively beach resort town boasting condos, hotels, souvenir shops and small attractions. I stayed here twice as a child, once in the cylindrical Hilton St. Pete Beach, a distinctive tower that boasts a rotating restaurant on its top floor. St. Pete Beach is also home to a historic landmark resort, the Don Cesar. Located on the south end of St. Pete Beach, it stands out boldly on the skyline with its bright pink exterior. It served as a landmark for my family when we would take turns rowing our inflatable two-man boat up and down the “usually” gentle shores of the Gulf of Mexico. I say “usually” because one time a sudden breaker knocked our little inflatable boat right over. Fortunately, hats and sunglasses were the only casualties. Speaking of the Gulf, don’t be surprised to find small stingrays, sand dollars, and even the occasional baby octopus as you enjoy the warm, clear water.
