A Beautiful Day



Everyone in the northern hemisphere should be having at least warmer weather, if not quite hot weather yet.

These weren't of anything special, but it was such a beautiful day on the day I took these that I thought I would put them out here.

I was standing along US Highway 1, which runs from Key West, Florida, all the way up the east coast of America, into Maine. That's the Indian River Lagoon on the left, with the Atlantic outside the picture farther left. The photo is looking south, along Highway 1, toward Miami and Key West. Every time I get onto US 1, I have the thought that I'd love to head out to Key West.

The other photo is from standing in the exact same place, only I turned to my left, toward the barrier island that we call beachside around here, and the Atlantic is on the other side of the island. Notice that there are little islands within the lagoon (extreme left in the pic), and on most warm weekends people pull their boats up on the shores of them, or on the sand bars, and spend the day, swimming, fishing, and picnicing.

My favorite is the first photo where you can see those trees in it. It would be a great place to go boating.

Wow what beautiful colors. Even though it is dry down there you still can't beat it for remarkable beauty.

Nice captures!
