Sunday – Fifty-Two Views of the Gulf

2015-08-29 08.22.03

Today’s photo shows a continued lack of a lot of visitors on the beach. You can tell the wind has been calm since there are a lot of footprints leading to and from the walkover. There is one lone camper on the left, and they look like they will not be staying too long. The temp this morning was a cool 78 degrees and since the humidity is in the 60’s it seems much cooler. The water is still at 89 degrees, so it feels like a bath when you go in.

Last week’s photo.

You can see the effects of high winds on the sand and the lack of footprints.

  1. It looks like a truly lovely morning, John. I hope you are inspired to write more and more. Hugs!

    1. Thanks, Teagan. Happy Sunday.

  2. Funny how some areas call 78 degrees cool while others consider that really warm. Reminds me of native Floridians bundling up in 60 degree weather.

    1. We bundle at 60as well. That’s cold.

      1. Can you see your breath in that weather?

      2. Only if you still have ice cubes or a frozen margarita​ in your mouth.

      3. I so need one of those now.

      4. Here you go. *transporter hum*

  3. It looks like the camper is heading toward center stage (beach). Will there be a crowd for Labor Day?

    1. Oh yes. We expect quite a number. We are going to Austin and leave the house to the kids.

      1. Sounds like a good idea. 🙂

      2. Yes. Quiet cafe in the city.

  4. What a lovely weather for a dip in the beach!

    1. It is nice. Thanks for coming along.

  5. Looks like a beautiful day – wish we had 78 degrees here!

    1. Thanks Teri. Wish you did too.

  6. The sea really is warm John. That near empty beach looks very inviting. It’s grey and fairly miserable here in London.

    1. I remember London in the fall. Still loved it though.

  7. I wouldn’t mind your 78-degrees. We’re nearing the 100s here!

    1. Yeah, that’s our low. We will get to 85 high

  8. John, I so look forward to your beach views on Sunday! This one certainly doesn’t disappoint, either. Temps in the high seventies doesn’t sound so awful, but I imagine you took this in the “cool” part of the day — before it jumped to 100, right?!!

    1. Well here it only gets into the high 80’s. It is 100 inland.

  9. This morning, I sure needed this…thanks, John. What a beautiful shot!

    1. Thanks, Jill. Have a good week.

  10. With the coolness of the morning, the feeling must be grand.

    1. Yes, it is. The lack of humidity is a gift as well.
