Good Morning...and it was

Went to the beach this morning to clear my head of the weekend. I also find the ocean air helps when I'm fighting a virus. Maybe it's in my head, but I'm OK with that.

Some stormy looking clouds were moving in, but they wimped out and dissipated.  No rain. Unfortunately, as we could use it here.

Nearly had the whole beach to myself...

except for these guys.

They are called "Piping Plover".  They are adorable to watch. They run around the water line all nervous-like as the tide pulls back they run towards the ocean looking for food and they sprint away when the water returns.  They look like they're afraid to get their feet wet. 

Run away! Aaaahhhh!

I did bring one friend with me.


There was an older gentleman there using a metal detector swishing it all around up and down the beach.  I found him to be so "local" that he was adorable.  I realized that we both were finding our own treasure there.  Here's mine...

Morning breaking through the stormy clouds.

No wonder we call it The Treasure Coast here.  I am truly blessed.

I just can say "WOW". I also live close to the sea, in Co. Wicklow, Ireland. But we absolutely could do with warmth and sun (being Italian I miss it big style) I could send you some Irish rain and you could send me some Florida sun :)
