This morning I went to Pointe Santo on West Gulf Drive to check on a couple of condos for a friend. This is the view from one of those condos.
The grounds are beautiful and green with lots of flowers blooming.
There is a major difference in the amount of people on the beach now. The temperature has been pretty nice. It was around 73 last night and got up to 92 for a little while today. I'm pretty whimpy in the heat, but it didn't seem that hot out to me, probably because the wind was blowing.
I was surprised to find a couple with a little boy on the beach, who lived directly across the street from me before moving here. We had a very nice chat before all of us were surprised by the little boy throwing two handsfuls of sand in my face. His Mommy let out a gasp in shock, just before he plastered her with sand too. His Dad was hurrying, trying to grab him when he started to throw more at me. He jumped in front of me and got pelted with it instead. It was hilarious but both parents were mortified.
There were not many shells on the beach during the time they have been here and they are leaving tomorrow. So I went home and gathered up one of nearly all of the common shells we find here, oiled them, put them in a bag to give them along with a shell guide so they will be able to identify them all. They will be driving back to Indiana, so maybe they can enjoy doing that on the trip back.
