The forecast for today was warm and overcast. Instead, we had warm and sunny! We took several walks on the beach and I even got my feet in the water – but not for very long. I just don’t like not knowing what might be coming with the water. There are lots of jellyfish on the beach so what if one of them came rolling in with the waves? Eeeeeeek! The waves are incredible. I watch them rolling in and crashing in to the beach, washing away portions of the sand. The high tide line was up past the pilings of one of the houses closest to the beach this morning. Next week high tide will be in the late afternoon rather than at night so maybe we’ll get to see it.
John stayed behind to read and I went in search of birds. There is a park in Gulf Shores with no discernible parking area so I parked in an empty lot next to a business and took my chances. Then I walked to the park and out on the boardwalk into the marsh where I found a gang of brown pelicans and a couple of stately herons.
