Back to the Ocean

Carlin Park Beach
Jupiter, Florida
September, 1, 2020
Chris and I arrived back to one of our favorite beaches yesterday. It is the beach near Carlin Park in Jupiter, Florida. The beach has changed significantly since our last visit during 
November due to hurricanes and reconstruction. It is much wider now. I remember that last year there were places along the beach where at high tide the waves would be at the base of the dunes.  Now the beach is wide and open.

It was a great way to spend the first day of September. The water was fabulous--it was warm, probably about 84 degrees, calm and clear. I could see my feet on the bottom while standing neck deep. That does not usually happen. 

It was also good to see the birds on the beach. Their plumage has changed since the last time we visited. 

There is something nice about waking up in the morning in Elkridge and being on the beach in Florida by 1:30 PM after stopping into the house to unpack. We left home and yet arrived at home. And the house was in great shape and ready for us. Our friends even made sure that the air conditioning was on and the house ready for our arrival. 

Back in Florida! Back to the
