Sign up for Tropical Sun

The colors at the golden moment were intense and quite wonderful. I’ll let the pictures tell the rest of the story…
One of the worst eroded spots was right through the site of the last sea-turtle nest on our stretch of beach.
Luckily this nest had hatched just days earlier, so all was well. But it highlighted for me why we protect those nests and how vulnerable those eggs are during the eight week incubation period.
Previously, this swampy, backwoods area was home to smugglers, renegades and runaways.
Frank set up a trading post and later a ferry across the river and his wife set about founding a city we now know by the name of that abandoned Fort; Ft. Lauderdale.
A bygone era of tropical life before as it was before bug screen and air conditioning turned many Florida beaches into a tourist playground.
This weekend has inspired me to collect a few images from rainy mornings to share. These days are more moody, quiet and contemplative, and the drama of the rain coming across the ocean is always worth stopping for.
All images here are taken by iPhone 3GS or iPhone4 over the last year.
As a wise woman once said, “We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop”.
This morning I came across him several times along the shore as he flew to different parts of the shoreline looking for fish to catch.
Jog, run or powerwalk, the beach is a fine place for getting out those running shoes and hanging out by the palms.
Ft Lauderdale Beach is defined by its famous wave wall and jogging along this stretch of A1A is a very pleasurable way to keep fit.
