Today is National Beach Day

It is National Beach Day today and 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! The banner photo is… Continue Reading “Today is National Beach Day”

Fave Fotos: A Florida Beach in May

Sometimes I take a photo I like so well that it can be good material for a post all by itself. The banner photo is one of those. It’s from a trip we made about two weeks ago. It was just when beaches became… Continue Reading “Fave Fotos: A Florida Beach in May”

Quick Trip Back to the Beach

It had been about three months since I had made a beach visit. And that’s way too long. Because it’s been difficult — as well as risky, of course — to get to the shore, I’ve been eager to get some sand in my… Continue Reading “Quick Trip Back to the Beach”

Earth-lovers are smiling today

But for whatever reason, it was tough finding shells. Now, I… Continue Reading “Beautiful Beach, Good Weather and No Shells”

Made another trip out to the Canaveral National Seashore yesterday and it was a bit different. It was our first visit since Hurricane Dorian passed by, skirting our coastline. Although the storm never got closer than about 50 miles offshore, the unmistakable tell that… Continue Reading “Canaveral National Seashore in Dorian’s Wake”

Back to Canaveral National Seashore Yesterday

Had a ball yesterday at the National Park that’s the closest to me. Yes, that would be Canaveral National Seashore near Titusville, Florida.

Time to walk the Beach

Sometimes you just want to walk up and down the beach. Not necessarily on a prime beach day, either. Sometime you’ve just got to take your luck, head that way and get out in it! That’s what this pensive fellow has done in this… Continue Reading “Time to walk the Beach”
