We always say that we stay away from the beaches on a major holiday weekend. We broke our own rule on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. We decided to go spend a few hours in the morning at Fort Desoto Park and then swing by to visit Brett’s aunt since her nursing home is close by. We were there before 9am and left before lunch. The crowds were thick before we left.
Sea hares in the water and on the beach.
A manatee cruising by the fishing pier.
On the fishing pier, I caught this dragonfly resting on a fishing pole. This poor shrimp was bait.
Ships passing by the pier and snowy egrets hanging out on the shelter.
We took the scenic route over to St. Pete beach before heading to visit his aunt.
I’m not a fan of crowds, but I do love the beach! Beautiful photos. I like the macro shot of the dragonfly on the tip of the fishing pole!
