On the Beach - Jupiter

Jupiter Beach July 6, 2013
It was a busy day on the beach yesterday. There must have been 30 people in the one mile long beach that we frequent. Crowded! But, it was a holiday weekend.

Still, it was our beach. A familiar spot on the planet where the Atlantic Ocean meets the warm, even hot, sands of the beach where I can relax and enjoy the sound of the waves crashing onto the shore. And they did crash on the beach yesterday.

Goodyear Blimp Flying Along the Beach
I can hardly believe that July is a week old today. Wow--how quickly it has gone and although it is vacation day 3, I am already feeling stressed about the impending end of my vacation--which I have only begun to enjoy. Every great beginning, it seems, has an ending. We considered taking a last minute cruise out of Miami--but while we were deciding, the cruise sold out.

So for now--it is beach time.

We even had a brief visit from the Goodyear Blimp while we were on the beach yesterday. I always enjoy watching the Blimp fly along the beach and imagine myself riding along. There is something magical about Blimps--even though they are becoming a bit more commonplace, I still enjoy their presence.

What wonderful things will happen today?  I guess I will just have to find out for myself.
