Leaving the beach

A few miles east of south Cocoa Beach.

Water is warming but still cold

As cold as our water is for this time of year, look at how much colder the coast north of us is. This difference in winter water temps is typical. Daytona Beach is usually colder by 5 to 10 degrees through the colder months and Jacksonville Beach, well, just forget about it. Might as well be in Jersey.

On the water

These people were probably having fun yesterday as they were leaving Port Canaveral on the Disney Wonder for a cruise. The guy below was definitely having fun doing his own cruise in the river behind the cruise terminals.

Top of Cocoa Beach

The Apollo capsule shaped pool at 2100 Towers in Cocoa Beach.
Easter Surf Festival is April 2 - 4 at the Cocoa Beach Pier. Pray for surf.

Helloooooo, anyone home?

Random pool in south Cocoa Beach, obviously not March in this photo.

Eye of the beholder

While there is undisputed beauty in the colorful flowers of the last post, there is equal beauty (in my eyes) in the golden sea oats on the dunes.

Good morning, sunshine

The flowers in my backyard seem to think spring is here. They were all welcoming the sunrise this morning.

Beautiful surf today

Clean peeling surf this morning at 16th St. Wind is straight out of the west and the sets are head high and bigger. Water is still in the low 60s, however. Wetsuit recommended.

Sea Oats

This is a summer shot. This time of year the sea oats are scrawny sticks before the new oats pop out in a few weeks.
