Today we decided to tackle the traffic to check out the beach. It was heavy, but not as bad as I had expected. I imagine the chilly weather had something to do with that. We went to resident access 6 on West Gulf Drive. It was only 52 degrees but it felt much colder with the northwest wind blowing. The beach actually looked like it had been swept clean. Shells were really scarce.
There were some things at the high tide line. (An operculum.)
And a Valentine heart.
The best thing to do when the NW wind is getting the best of you, is to slip up behind some unsuspecting person and use them for a windbreak.
