This afternoon we went to the beach at Buttonwood Dr. It's a half mile west of the lighthouse. It was sunny and hot. It got up to 88 degrees today and the water felt really warm. The tide was out and there were hardly any waves at all. I enjoyed walking in the water, looking for shells, because it was pretty clear. I only found one cone, and not a very good one, by doing that. Then when we were ready to leave, I noticed a wentletrap at the edge of the water. When I looked closer, I found a few more tiny shells. I love the teeny tiny ones. :)
There were a lot of boats anchored out, some were tied together. I've never seen that many hanging around there at one time.
There were more people out in the water than on shore. Seems they were all trying to stay cool.
These two, coming out with their noodles. :)
There were three groups of pelicans, like this, all bobbing around together, just like the people.
You can tell how far out the water was shallow.
This doggie didn't think he needed a leash. He repeatedly fetched this toy, over and over. There were three dogs there at the same time and none of them were on a leash. One small dog took off running down the beach and a man started after him. When he saw he wasn't going to be able to catch it, he went back to where his beach umbrella was. He then got on a segway and went flying across the beach after the dog. He had to go quite a way along the waters edge before he caught it. The dog was on a leash and running along beside him on the way back. I didn't think segways were allowed on the beach. ??
These are the shells I carried home. I was most proud of the two wentletraps, tiny baby's ear and a itty bitty mac n cheese.
After a walk on a hot day, I highly recommend one of these Pina Coladas. :) Even the bird thought it looked good.
