I did finally make it to the beach for a sunset. Being on the Gulf of Mexico, pictures would be easier to take over the water. I chose to walk out to the end of the key. And here was the adventure along the way….
First the squirrels laying out by the pool greeted me. I found later they have a friend who brings them peanuts at the pool.
Halfway down the strand, there was this seagull and then another just standing there facing into the wind…. I finally looked up the beach and here were easily 50 birds of different varieties all facing into the wind. A few had their heads buried under the wings.
I was able to get to the end and around them without scaring the group, but another man looking for shells sent them flying. Fortunately, I was at the ready with the camera… At the end of the key, the sun slowly sank into the gulf as the pelicans and dolphins came fishing for supper. I wasn’t so fortunate to get the great pictures of the dolphins – or at least you couldn’t not pick them out from the waves in the pictures I could get. Not a bad ending to the week.
