It’s been a hot summer with little rain. Most days looked like this. Sunny with no real chance of rain (at least the rain lowers heat). I went out early for a short walk on the causeway, hoping for a breeze.
The water was so clear you could see the little bait fish swimming in between the old concrete pillars.
The north side of the causeway has never been nice but now it’s really full of dead seaweed. I wonder if this is part of that big 5,000 miles of sargassum seaweed that was floating out in the Atlantic Ocean and heading for Florida.
Walking over the bridge I was almost eye level with the terns diving for fish.
The south side of the causeway was nice and clear.
A kiteboarder goes cruising by.
After my walk I headed over to the marina to see if there were any dolphins or manatees swimming by.
A pelican sits on the corner of the pier and for a short while no one was bothering him.
I could see a dolphin fin breaking the water (just below the red sign) but I couldn’t find him again after I snapped this. He must have turned around and headed out under water.
My favorite great egret was there on the floating dock, trying to catch bait fish through the hole.
There’s a live camera on top of the restaurant next to the pier (it has a minute or two delay). I pulled it up on my phone and screen shot the above of me standing there leaning on the pier (in the blue shirt on the right). I had the pier all to myself this morning, no fishermen or joggers stopping by.
