Beach in Winter..

I dropped by the beach with my girlfriend last week.. the first thing I noticed was that the Coconut Palm had Coconuts!... can you see them?

If not here's a close up!

This is my first sight of the ocean ...

Then I saw the erosion!  it had to be a 6 foot drop to the water!

But the ocean was gorgeous.  Look at all the shades of blue and green.

It was very clean (for a change) no seaweed around and magnificent colors.

See how clean everything is..  in the photo below (barely seen) is the jetty.

The waves were quite calm.  I don't know when the huge erosion happened.. it wasn't this way the last time I saw the beach, which was last year.

There were maybe 3 other people walking around, otherwise not a soul on the beach...not even a Seagull or Pelican!

Hi Pat,

Which beach were you at? Great shots, brings back loads of good memories.

We have hit both Daytona beach and Cocoa beach in December and not seen a living soul, apart from a few birds near to waters edge. It was magical to walk for so far with just the sea for company.

Didn't manage to visit from the UK this year, first time we have missed for 20 years. We were both really sad, having to home for Christmas, darned recession!!!

Wow, with the weather we're having here, it would be lovely to wish myself down there to visit you, if only for a couple of hours. My sister called yesterday from Mission, Texas, saying it was 77 degrees and sunny there.

It certainly is BEAUTIFUL, Pat....But shocking that there would be such a HUGE Erosion...! I wonder if it happened during the big Storms/Hurricane Season? It is rather scary to think that THAT much of the beach could disappear....!

Love those Cocoanuts!

Firstly, gush! You stopped by my blog. I have seen your name so many times over the blogging world, I was a tad shy to come and say hello, but you beat me to it, so thank you for visiting my blog.

Secondly, what awesome photos. You have a very good eye for an excellent picture.

The lack of people and birds makes it sound like it would have been a lovely, peaceful time to take a walk there. Great pictures, the water does look lovely.

Absolutely gorgeous pictures, Pat. I miss the ocean sometimes so much, and your photos make me wish I could see it again soon. I'll have to look at these instead, they make me feel like I am there!
