Seagulls in Black and White


St. George Island

Yesterday we went to my new favorite stomping ground. We visited St George Island in North Florida. This was a lovely beach with a lighthouse and the usual public facilities. Small, understated, yet clean and the best part of all free. There’s a storm right now out in the gulf, and I believe that is why we experienced some rain and some high surf.

But there was a lot of good. The rain was gone by the time we got there. We had a little bit of cool time with an overcast sky. Then the sun came out and did it stuff and burned our faces.

But those waves

We had so much fun getting twisted into a pretzel. So much fun getting flipped upside down. This was a workout and the kind that you enjoy.

If you jump into a shop you see like this. Make sure your little ones have a flotation device. The smallest ones we like to keep that life jacket on even when they know how to swim.

No major incidents just a successful day at the beach as a family. And this was one of those take a day off in the middle of the week kind of days.

My oldest daughter does not like birds at all. She was standing in front of me offering me a half-eaten cookie. I asked her if she knew that there was a seagull hovering over her shoulder. The second she saw the gull, she let out a scream and threw her cookie straight up in the air. Well.

That means we had more than one gull for a little while. I tried to explain if you don’t like seagulls you don’t throw cookies up in the air. It’s a rule.

I have to say I like the beaches in North Florida. Especially in this area which they call the forgotten coast. Have you ever been to St George Island?

Do you like hole in the wall beaches or do you like big commercial type operations?

What’s your favorite beach overall?
