Sunday – Fifty-Two Views of the Gulf


Beautiful day here on the island. Had to maneuver around to avoid spring breakers in the picture. Nothing like a bunch of half dressed teens asking me to take off my shirt for some beads to ruin an image.

I thought I would post one of the last photos of the crossover. I took it from the beach side and it gives you an idea of the scope of the thing. The debris around the base of the structure is what the high tides brought in. That black thing sticking up in the air is a sign warning trespassers that our area is mined and patrolled by black ops mercenaries. (just kidding). It does inform the lost that this is private property


That little mound on the left is the piece of the dune that the pictures previous to the walk over would show. I now take the Gulf picture from the platform to the left of the sign.

Last week’s photo



  1. Your island is so pretty, John. And you did very well, no spring breakers in your gorgeous images. πŸ™‚

    1. I got up early they were still asleep. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the visit.

      1. Sometimes it really pays to get up early. πŸ™‚

  2. The water looks so very inviting this morning, John. Lovely shot. It’s been a gloomy weekend, but I’m not complaining. We had a full week of positively glorious weather. And now the temps are in the 50s, which I find pleasant enough.
    LOL, watch out for spring-breakers with beads! πŸ˜€ Mega hugs.

    1. I know right? Last year a young person leaned out of a pickup and said, “Hi old man.” (in a very kind way I might add.)

  3. Have fun this upcoming week with spring breakers. Ugh. o_O
    I can’t believe this walkway is finished. What a wonderful place to live in spring and summer. I’m jealous. πŸ™‚

    1. Lucky Spring Break is only two more weeks. Thanks Tess

  4. Looks like our Spring’s springing finally too. Played with the dogs in the garden this morning and almost felt too hot with my thick jumper (sweater πŸ˜› ) on/ They’d love your beach, John – so much, I think I’d have difficulty getting them to come back! πŸ˜€

    1. I know what you mean. Thanks Jan

  5. Relaxing pictures. Surprised to find the drunken masses are around there.

    1. Oh they are here alright.

  6. The walkway is beautiful John. The did a great job and it seems like they did it quickly.

    1. Yes they did. We were lucky to have them exclusively which is very rare on the island

  7. Oh no, I forgot about the spring breakers…good luck. Hum…I wonder if that will be the topic of your Top 10 list tomorrow? πŸ™‚ Gorgeous photos, John!

    1. I am thinking of doing one. Yes

  8. Serenely gorgeous.

    1. It is peaceful. Have a great week

  9. It looks absolutely beautiful, John. We really should have stopped by on our cross country trip last year πŸ™‚

    1. I know right? You were so close.(well maybe a couple of hours.) Next time perhaps.

      1. Absolutely. Sounds like a plan.

  10. What a beautiful day you’re having! After rain this morning, we’re finally seeing a bit of sun. But the clouds are still swirling, with more rain on the approach. Enjoy those spring breakers (and know that season only comes around once a year!!)

    1. Yes it is like a three week sty. uh stay. (Sty was pretty good.)

    1. *Don’t be. I like your area too*

  11. John,
    Thank you for this.

    One of my favorite shots so far of the water… The water is such a pretty color today.

    1. Yes it has been pretty blue for a couple of days. Thank you for stopping and for the comment.
