A beautiful beach day before red tide rolled in.

Things along the trail from our car to the beach.

Out on the beach, it was a perfect quiet morning in late August. We get there early before it gets too hot and crowded.

The water was crystal clear but warm. This was before the red tide had brought dead sea life to the beach, the calm before the storm. I was traveling light this morning so all above were taken with my phone.

Is summer over yet?

Not for us down here in central Florida. September is one of the hottest months because we usually don’t get the afternoon summer rains to cool down.  It’s a perfect time to start heading back to the beach since most of the tourist are gone after Labor Day.  On a nice quiet Saturday morning, all that’s left are sea oats and ghost crabs.
