I just got this advisory in my email today. Not really what I wanted to see! :-( Today it is sunny and it doesn't feel too cold out. It was near 60 degrees, but by mid-afternoon it began to drop again. You will find my regular post below, along with some photos and a video of the beach at resident access 7, off West Gulf Drive this afternoon. Several of the pictures are purely for your cyber shelling pleasure. :-)

It wasn't too cold for the birds to play in the water.
A good Paper Fig! The only other things we picked up were a few jingles and a couple little scallops.
We still have lots of beautiful flowers blooming on the island and green grass. :-)
Just before dark, I noticed how pretty the sky looked. It made me wish I had stayed at the beach for sunset.
