Our days in Florida are drawing to a close soon. We plan to leave Sat. Jan. 31 so we can be in Tuscaloosa in time to see Jessica and Dexter (Derek?) on Sun. before they go back to Birmingham. So we've been doing some long walks on the beach here. One day it was about 6 miles and another day maybe only 4 or 5 miles. The miles go by nicely because the scenery is beautiful. To get a picture of us walking on the beach we got a couple who was on the beach fishing. They put their poles in pole holders of some sort and fish right from the beach. They mostly fish for whiting. They say it's good eating. Here is the picture they took of us. It was a little chilly that day. I've learned you have to dress in layers some days so you'll see me in layers. Bob, on the other hand, dresses the way he dresses and bears the heat or the cold or whatever comes his way. I'm the whimp and want to have options.
Notice the beautiful blue water and white sand. There is also red sand on a lot of the beach in our area. I think it comes from some sort of sea algae.
No surfers, whales, dolphins, sharks or swimmers in the background. The signs said the water was about 52 degrees. I wouldn't be in that water either. The air temp was probably in the 60's. Nice.
