It is a gorgeous green-flag day on Pensacola Beach. Days like this with very little wave action cause us to refer to the gulf as the 'Lake of Mexico'
As I was walking along the beach this morning, I noticed new growth in several areas. Above are sea oats that have popped up in the middle of the beach, not close to the old (or replanted) dunes.
This looks like dune sunflowers, which I love. Again, they were coming up halfway between the houses and the beach. I think we can thank the seagulls and mourning doves for this particular sign of new growth.
