It was a beautiful day on the beach. After a bike ride, I decided to drive down toward Park East, hike east a couple of miles, and get a few shots.
It was a beautiful day, as you can see. Not many folks were down this way until after 10:30 a.m., then they started trickling in, trying to find a solitary spot to call their own for a while. It's not a difficult thing to do on Pensacola Beach. The real challenge is to avoid nesting birds, who will dive bomb you when you get close to their territory. This is when it's very helpful to be wearing a hat!
As I turned to go back home -- for a tall glass of water and a nice cool shower -- I stopped for a few minutes and just enjoyed the experience of being able to stand in the middle of the road like a fool. Guess you never get past some childhood pleasures.
