Welcome to my "Florida" blog

Being a third generation Florida native, I'm completely enamored with the diverse beauty of this gorgeous peninsula. For most of the year the weather is divine which makes exploring its unlimited nooks and crannies fun and easy.

Wherever I go I appreciate nature and the world around me. Come along with me as I share the places I visit and perhaps a few other amusements I find interesting along the way.

Beach Skies

Sunrise at the beach is a magical time of day.

Sunset is equally magnificent and full of wonder.

The skies along the shoreline can transform into many shades and colors in the course of a day.

First light of soft pinks and orange-yellows reflect onto tree trunks against brilliant blue skies.

Sometimes clouds and wind shift the skies from blue to grey and back again very quickly.

And birds in flight change the skies into paintings.

The tallest palm trees reaching for heaven brighten the life of a crystal clear sky.

Blue water. Blue sky. Black Skimmers break up the blues .

Calm Gulf waters lap gently onto the shoreline as the day comes to a close.

Cloudless sky.

Morning shadows.

Sunset on fire.

Hazy horizon.

Magical colors.

Cloudy sunset.



Ominous sky.

Dull sky.

Peaceful sky.




All photos taken in the last 6 weeks... the ever changing, ever beautiful skies of the beach.
