Early to Rise
When you get up early and head out to the beach you sometimes are in for a great surprise! That surprise today is that we were pretty close to the only ones on the Air Force beach. We flashed our ID and with in a few steps we were on the sugar white sands of the Emerald Coast. The gulf was beautiful this morning. The water was brilliant greens and blues, just like the water in the Virgin Islands. With no one except the birds wandering the shore line, we had a great time. The water was cool, but once you get your shoulders wet it was no big deal! Plus, the cool water is a nice retreat from the suns 100 degree rays beating down on us.
After 45 minutes in the water we took a little stroll down the sandy shore to take a few pictures. We found some great drift wood formations.
Since we are only 15 miuntes from the beach we stayed for an hour and half, then stopped at the grocery store on the way home to pick up all the stuff we need for the weekend of entertaining the family! Tonight we will head back to Eglin Air Force Beach for sunset after we have dinner.
What an awesome place to live!
