Sunday – Fifty-Two Views of the Gulf

Here is the first photo taken from my usual position.


As you can see there is a bunch of construction in the way. This part of the walkway will be a rest area (don’t laugh) with a bench. Here is where folks can take some time to look over the gulf and enjoy a sunrise or two. Since this view doesn’t show any of the Gulf I cheated and moved a little to the left.


Ahhh. That’s better. These posts will support the ramp that gradually slopes down to the beach. The weather is beautiful and unseasonably warm. The Gulf water temperature is 67 F which is aboutΒ 10 degrees warmer that normal. The highs are in the mid-seventies and lows in the 60’s. All in all very pleasant.

Last week’s photo



  1. Very pleasant indeed, John…looks beautiful. Happy Sunday!

    1. You as well Jill. Thanks for the nice visit.

  2. They seem to be moving at a good clip John. Our high (air) temp yesterday was 61, which is unseasonable for sure. 70 degrees warmer than a week ago πŸ™‚

    1. Wow. I remember when I lived in CT when that would happen the next couple of weeks seemed stark in comparison

      1. Yeah, it kinda makes your head snap and then you keep waiting for spring.

  3. You’ll have somewhere to SIT and take your photos in future then John? πŸ˜‰ It’s shaping up well so I’m looking forward to seeing it all finished πŸ˜€

    1. Thanks Jan. Me too.

  4. You’re gong to have to change your position, John. Still jealous of your weather.

    1. next week I will take the photo from the top of the walkway.

      1. Good thinking, that man.

  5. The little rest area sounds like a great spot for you to sit and enjoy the gulf while taking some photos to post. Our high yesterday was 75, but we’ve dropped to 55 for today and will keep dropping this week. Winter weather with snow is in our forecast. Have a terrific week.

    1. I understood there was warmer weather in the East. πŸ™‚

  6. They’re not wasting any time, are they. I’m sure this will be a delight when finished.
    Your weather makes me drool. Can’t wait till our season changes. *sigh*

    1. Yes it is alway nice to have a warmer season. πŸ™‚

      1. Especially for these mature bones. πŸ™‚

  7. Wow! A little progress. πŸ™‚

  8. The weather sounds like bliss, John. Thanks for giving us a beach break. Mega hugs!

    1. Thank you for the wish. Happy Sunday to you. (Sung with the music from Happy Birthday)

      1. LOL, you’re in fine voice, John. Thanks for the Sunday song. With Monday nipping at my heels, I need the reminder to relax and enjoy the rest of the weekend. πŸ˜€

      2. Yes. That Monday thing is brutal. Relax and savor.

  9. John, great progress photos! The walkway is coming along! SoCal’s in the 70s today and into the 80s this week. No complaints here. Have a delightful day & week! πŸ’› Elizabeth

  12. Stunning, John! Thank you for the progress update — won’t be too much longer and you’ll have a nice access ramp.
