"Indescribably lovely. Truly heaven on earth, I thought more than once as I walked west toward Ft. Pickens in the sunny solitude of this unpopulated part of the island. The variegated aqua water was as clear as I've seen it in seven summers, and seemed to stretch on to unknown horizons."
"I saw dolphins jumping at a distance, rays hunting inshore, and small birds zipping by in swift, hushed flocks mere inches above the water. An amateur fisherperson had caught a 'needle fish' and was cutting it loose "so he can live". It was just a delightful gift of a day, full of visual treasures to remember in November."
~~ L.L's message from Pensacola Beach
[Many thanks to my friend, Linda, who also lives here on the beach. She sent me a copy of a paragraph she'd written to another friend in Pennsylvania, describing how beautiful our weather is right now. It visually captured a day on the beach so perfectly that I asked if I could quote her on my blog.]
