Ft. Pickens walks
I had not walked into Ft. Pickens national park area since right after Hurricane Gustav blew past us on his way to Louisiana. The first thing I noticed was that Hurricane Ike, on his way to Galveston, had taken out our new Park sign.
The white sand and blue sky was incredibly beautiful.
A stately heron sits atop a large section of asphalt buried in the sand.
Remnants of the old road are all along the shoreline. I don't think this is new damage.
It appears Hurricane Ike unearthed the road destroyed several years ago during Hurricane Ivan.
Hundreds of sea birds were everywhere.
Water so clear that you could easily see fish riding the waves.
The sky on occasion would fill with all types of birds, but this time with pelicans was an extraordinary sight.
What a wonderful day to be on Pensacola Beach.
