Sands of Time in the Late Afternoon Sun

Good morning,

No, we aren't traveling again yet.  These images were taken four months ago while we were in Cocoa Beach, Florida.
I'm just in the mood for some beach pictures and hope you enjoy them, too.
Those are very distorted shadows of My Honey and me late one afternoon as we strolled the beach with our cameras. 
The late afternoon sun provided for some great images.
 There had been children playing here when we walked past the first time.  They surely left the feather in the sand. 
 This is the view down the beach where we sailed out of Port Canaveral aboard Freedom of the Seas the next evening.  We'll be back there again next month. 

Ah, the beach....

Best,
Lois

YOur shadow shot made me think of the song Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress--do you remember it. I think it was by the Hollies.

I missed commenting on your grandson Isaac's birthday party at Castle Skateland...granddaughter Alivia loves skating there...they might have been present at the same time. ☺

Since I live in landlocked Utah--beach photos are always welcome. They are beautiful!

Seeing these pictures reminds me of my childhood growing up in Pensacola, Florida with those pure white sandy beaches. And the wonderful seafood that was so fresh (it slept in the Gulf the night before!).
