Vilano Beach in January

Vilano Beach is outside of St. Augustine. It is a rough one. Or maybe it was just today, being windy and cold. Sunny, but cold. The Atlantic was like a huge washtub with the water overflowing.

These were not ordinary waves


Then there were the seagulls. Everywhere.

Up in flight


Wait...they are flying to me


Up close


Flying away


...away...


...and away...


...to the flock.


And the ocean


Leaving the beach we saw this funky little typical Florida motel. It was across from an enormous state-ot-the-art Hampton Inn. Almost a palace. What a contrast.

What a sign!


In all it's funky beauty


The rooms


A taste of Florida

Beach Cactus

After a short trip to town, we ventured out to just look at the ocean. It was a cold one. Windy and gray. But, no rain this trip.

What stopped me dead in my tracks was this cactus with beautiful purple...ummm...flowers? Seed pods? I really don't know. All I know is that this little cactus caught my attention and made me get out of the car to get a closer look and a couple of pictures.

And, as long as I was out of the car and cold, I figured I might as well take a few more pictures. I LOVE taking pictures!!!

River Lights

Every night when I leave work, this is the view I am lucky enough to enjoy. I park my little Beetle so she gets a first hand look all day long. This scene always makes me stop and look for a minute.

This is really one of those pictures you have to click on to appreciate the full panoramic effect.

Rainy Day at the Beach

We went on a ride out to the beach since we ate breakfast at the Beach Hut Cafe. Today was one of those rainy days. Kinda cool and gray. The beach was serene and wet. Really wet. And gray. I'm still trying to warm up.

Wet boardwalk


Snow fencing?
