It's a bit of a trek in Marco to get from the car park to the beach as they have built so many million dollar homes and condos on the beachfront that public access is impossible. I think this is one of the things that keeps the crowds down. Once we rounded the corner and could see the beach we were in awe.
|Miles and miles of uninterrupted beach and not a soul in sight|
|I'm sure it's unusual to have this much tidal difference in Florida.|
We played dodge the thunderstorm most of the day but it was worth it.
|The reality of summer in Florida|
|We have decided to call pelicans Florida Penguins. At least it makes us think of cooler temps|
|waves, Florida sized ones|
|The water looked so dirty from all the sand being churned up.|
Before leaving the beach they picked through the ones they wanted and ended up with 2 small buckets full. I apparently was paying close enough attention cos one of them placed a bucket with water in it in the back of the car!! On the way home it was tipped over and when we got home I had a soggy car but the next morning when I opened the car to go to work was when I found the real problem. It stank to high heaven. Lovely and I had to valet park. I drove with the windows down and sprayed Febreeze before I left and thankfully it helped.
We are heading back over to the west coast again before school starts, hopefully this time it won't be as stormy.
