May rays in Santa Rosa Sound

Now that I live in a condominium, I have many opportunities to observe sunsets, sunrises and storms, as well as all type of birds and marine life on Santa Rosa Sound.  This was an amazing moment when I saw two schools of May rays (cownose rays) noticing each other and staging their own version of the Sharks and the Jets (in West Side Story)!

Holding communion

Kissing the Shoreline

"There's nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it's sent away." ~~ Sarah Kay

Favorite Places

One of my favorite spots is the western end of the island at Ft. Pickens. To the right is Pensacola Pass, where you see boats heading out into the Gulf of Mexico. On the other side of the Pass is the remains of a battered and burned Ft. McRae,located at the tip of Perdido Key.

Solitude is where one discovers one is not alone. ~~ Marty Rubin

Park West

The surf has continued to cut into the shoreline. Beach restoration, which had to be postponed from last fall due to rough surf and windy conditions, will commence soon. This photo was taken recently at Park West.
