Beautiful Beach, Good Weather and No Shells

Beautiful Beach, Good Weather and No Shells

Wrapped up a fine and long-overdue trip to Cocoa Beach recently.

I love the beach, and the City of Cocoa Beach is always a pleasure to visit.

And yes, the weather was near-perfect.

But for whatever reason, it was tough finding shells.

Now, I know most of you are probably thinking that any trip to the beach is very worthwhile whether you come away with a good haul of sea-stuff or not.

I certainly agree!

But still, I was a bit disappointed. The banner photo for today’s post showcases the shells we did come away with.

But I’ll be heading back soon, of course!

Get outdoors, folks.

To the beach, to one of our amazing National Parks. To wherever!

Just get off the couch and do it!

You’ll be so glad you did…

Fave Fotos: One More from a Summer of ’17 Beach Outing

Time to bring out a photo from a trip back in July. I like this shot. It recreates for me the feel of expectancy just before you get to the end of the ramp where you can see the sand, smell the sea and hear the waves crashing on the shore.

Not too many things in life that can make me feel that good.

It’s been around two to three weeks since I’ve been to the beach. And it’s killing me. Spending a boatload of time and energy tryin’ to figure out how to get back.

I’ll get it done. Until then, I’ve got some pretty damn good pictures.
