yes, i admit it. I live in paradise.
I took many, many photos of beautiful birds in this spot today -you can see a few of them here. It will take me some time to share the rest because there are so many . . . but THIS photo really spoke volumes to me of how beautiful it is on the barrier islands that are so close to me. The Gulf of Mexico makes the water so beautiful here. When I show you photos of Asia swimming at De Soto Memorial the water is often tan or copper colored because of all the mangrove tree roots. The water there is really more part of the river. But this!! This is beautiful, clear and all shades of blue. Wade in with me! (large is nice)
