We had a glorious week. The sun was out every day, and the water was as clear as a swimming pool. The winds were relatively calm, and so the daytime temperature of 85 degrees seemed even hotter. The water temperature is also 85 degrees, so it is like taking a bath in the Gulf. If you look very carefully you can see purple morning glories to the near right. I tried to get a little closer so they would show up. That car came into view just as I took the picture. Yes, driving on the beach is allowed (darn it). Way off in the distance you can see a boat hauling a barge. The little dot is the boat and the dash behind it is the barge.
last week’s scene wasn’t too much different although the winds made the wave action a little stronger.
