A few snapshots from the beach

We just came back from a short trip to the beach (New Smyrna Beach) and although we weren't there long, I finally managed to catch a sunrise over the ocean. 

Within a few minutes, the sky changed dramatically as more and more of the sun became visible.

Bright light over rough water

The morning light over the rough waves was well worth the early wake-up and fast pedal to the beach.

Biking on the sand

I'm so enjoying biking again, even if our pedalled trips are relatively short.  Biking on the sand is a blast (a sand blast?) - almost as much fun as going for swims, photographing birds and playing with the shells and seaweed on the beach.

The waves were so steady and strong I had a hard time keeping track of Ralph and Tim in the water

Tim tells Ralph, "That last wave was this big!"

After he finished swimming, Timmy did a bit of acrobatics on the beach

Pelican on the wing...

A month ago when we were at New Smyrna Beach, the sand was dotted with jellyfish.

Jellyfish were everywhere

This time, we didn't see any jellyfish but the sand was covered with lots and lots of seaweed.

I like seaweed MUCH better than jellyfish!

Greetings from the beach


  1. Fantastic photos of the sunrise. I love pics of sunrises and sunsets. Can never get enough of them. Looks like a nice time was had by all.

    1. I feel the same way about sunrises/sunsets. Never too many. We did have a fun and relaxing time even though it was a relatively short there-and-back trip this time.
