August 30th is here, and…

…and it’s National Beach Day! Happy to say that I’m heading out in a few hours to get in on the party!

If you’re anywhere near the coast–any coast–I hope you’ll get some sand in your shoes today.

That’s my plan exactly! Just threw the cooler and that over-sized beach umbrella in the back of the car!

The banner photo is of a recent trip to Canaveral National Seashore near Titusville here in the Sunshine State. That’s the closest National Park to me; we never miss a chance to take in its unspoiled beauty.

The photo below was taken at Cocoa Beach, just a bit to the south of Canaveral. I took it about ten months ago. When I view this one, I can almost hear the waves lapping at my feet and smell the sea air.

Enjoy your day whether or not you make it to the shore! If you’re only just now hearing about how special this day is, and can’t get in on the fun, I’ll give you an excused absence. Just this once!

And if you don’t make it, remember this: you certainly don’t have to wait ’til National Beach Day 2022!
