After all the rains, I just HAD to get out of the house once there wasn't much of a threat of another storm....
I walked along the Packery Channel [a boat channel to reach the open seas, the Gulf] Saturday morning. Once I stopped at the end of the jetty, I pulled out my phone and recorded some wave action. If you'd like to listen to the surf, have your volume up on your speakers!

...another short video of 4 pelicans at the beginning as I recorded a 2nd time:

I walked the entire channel from the island highway parking lot to the end, then turned around and headed to the sandy beach. Along the way, this is what I saw. There are boaters, fishermen, a surfing class, egrets, terns, herons, breaking waves, railroad vine [pink morning glories], mexican squirrel, fencing, elevated boardwalks, and an abandoned trainer bicycle...
...I only walked about 3 1/2 miles just to make sure I didn't get soaked with oncoming storms...but, once home and photos were resized for blog, heavy rains poured down once again. On June 1st Hurricane Season began for the United States Gulf, Atlantic, and Pacific Oceans...Bonnie, along the Atlantic Coast has been downgraded to a tropical depression now, yet...there is another storm watch issued along the Yucatan of Old Mexico, predicted to head toward the Florida Pennisula...watch it closely!!!
