A few pics taken with my new IPod, on our vacation in the Seagrove/Seaside FL area. 30-A is the two lane county (state?) hiway that separates the houses from the dunes and the beach. It's been beautiful all week.
Every day, every hour, the colors change a bit. No day is the same, with endless variations of sky, water, dunes.
No condos or high rises on "our" stretch of 30-A. No drunken revelers, no college spring-breakers -- mostly just families, and even a good number of "full timers".
Above is looking back over to Seaside from the beach access.
I wish I could show you the true colors, without the intermediary of the camera lens or computer resolution.
Another day, more amazing colors!
I don't think I could ever tire of it.
Sunset brings more brilliant colors.
Yesterday's high tide brought in a prodigious amount of seaweed on to the beach - somewhat unusual for here.
But another amazing day and sunset, none the less.
Today we went inside an "open house" of a house for sale -- a 2 bedroom bungalow built in 1935 a couple of blocks off the beach, with fully renovated kitchen and bathrooms, large front porch, a driveway cool and shady with arbors and vines, and a separate guest house in the back and reasonably priced (for the beach -- almost attainable if we didn't have 8 consecutive years of college for the girls to look at, and if we had a job down here ;-). Oh the beachdreams in my head . . . .
