Of course the weather was perfect the day after my sister-in-law went home
The beach was crowded with early morning beach goers.
High tide was taking a bite out of the sandy shore.
This is what Mike always referred to as the "dead tree." It had fallen over about seven years ago and there really is not too much left of it now, but it was a land mark for us. Mike always had the best luck finding sharks' teeth near it. When I would walk to the beach to meet him after his early morning hunting, this is where I would meet up with him and we would walk the mile and a half back to the parking lot together. I was greeted there today by a large dolphin maybe fifty yards off shore. A shout out from Mike.
Another half mile down the beach, two new dead trees, Causarinas. I was
sorry to see their demise even though they do drop sharp little cones.

It looks kind of deserted, but it really was not. I ran into six different people I knew so my four mile walk actually took three hours to complete. It was a beautiful day to get sand between my toes.
