the walk to the beach

1.20.2012

Mel and I walked to the beach almost everyday while we were visiting her parents in Florida. It's about a 10 minute walk from their front door under a canopy of live oaks and Spanish moss. We would stroll down to the water with our towels, sunglasses and books and read and walk around looking for shells. I usually can't go to the beach and just hang out.. I get bored, but this was different. Maybe because it was 70 degrees instead of 100 and there were tons of different kinds of birds to watch and photograph. We got to know the birds pretty well and we would go back to the house with descriptions of seagull-like birds for Mel's dad to identify for us.

I could definitely get used to life on Amelia Island. Now if I could just convince everyone I love to move there with me.. that would be perfect.

  8. I'm not a huge beach person either. I've just never been one of those people who are spiritually into the water and all that. But this seems like a lovely way to enjoy the beach.

  10. How lovely! And I agree with your last statement, if only I could convince everyone to move to Australia then life would be perfect. Unfortunately that's not as easy as you think it should be!
