Flovember: Post Storm



Day 10

“At the beach, life is different. Time doesn’t move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the currents, plan by the tides, and follow the sun.” –Sandy Gringas



Day 11


Day 12

The storm!
We didn't go out on Wednesday.


Day 13

After the storm, I found a tervis glass on the beach! 


Day 14


Day 15


Day 16

An osprey slept on the balcony next door. 


Day 17

“We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.” –John F. Kennedy

On Monday, the storm moved through like a wandering bear cub. On Wednesday, it came back like a curious fox. A rabid fox, but definitely not a lion. We stayed inside. I ate more Grace and Shelly's cupcakes. I drank Flor de Cana rum and coconut water, and made my famous squash ravioli with proscuito, pecans and cream sauce. Now, the skies are warm, the beaches are calling. The tide is low. Meanwhile, the coronavirus has infected eleven million people. And another hurricane is looming over Central America. Life is always full of yin and yang. Next week, I'll post more yin on Lover's Key.

I don't like storms, but I do like your post storm pictures - all of them.

Sharon - OK - I think everyone wants to know - is Day 11 sunglasses? Love the Day 15 picture! Glad you are safe despite the storm, and I hope it stays that way as more storms continue to form!!! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

I loved your seaside images and notes from your week. So sorry to hear about your Covid cases in US. We have relatively few cases here in Australia. Stay safe! And thank you for the link up.

What beautiful photos of the ocean. I am drawn to the sea! I long for it! We didn't have much here in the central part of the state and I am happy for that. And now the weather is gorgeous!

Day 13 looks wonderful! Those swim goggles must have been underwater for a long time.

Anni said...

Love, love, LOVE the osprey straight on looking at us as we enjoy the beach with you. [also, love the sand dollar wedged in the driftwood].

Thanks so much for sharing this post with us birders at I'd Rather B Birdin'. And, sorry so late in getting around to paying you a visit....this week, it's been a slow lazy time.

Lisa said...

The barnacles on the goggles are amazing! Lovely finds. I love beach combing.

theartofpuro said...

As always your images are spectacular. Thanks for commenting on my blog, I'm trying to use it again :)
