Beach Afternoon


SV Dragonfly off Jupiter
Jupiter Island, Jupiter, FL
October 26, 2022

The weather the past few days has been idyllic. Seriously. Clear skies, comfortable temperatures, and mild or no wind. Perfect weather for afternoons on the beach or at our favorite watering hole along the Loxahatchee River. 

We are three for three for the week!

Last evening the color of the water finally returned to blue as the turbidity from the recent storms decreased. It was a beautiful night. There was a lone sailing vessel on the horizon. My Marine Traffic app indicated it was the SV Dragonfly. I enjoy identifying the vessels at sea. I am looking forward to using the app during our upcoming cruise. 

Pelican on Loxahatchee River

October 24, 2022
Each evening has been different, yet still enjoyable and beautiful. Monday evening I imaged a pelican on a post while looking toward the mouth of the Loxahatchee River where it empties into the ocean. There were more clouds Monday evening, but sitting at the Square Grouper with friends was a perfect way to celebrate the end of the day.

I was reminded yesterday that the end of Daylight Saving Time (DST) is November 6th. With sunsets happening at 6:40 PM right now, once DST ends, they will occur closer to 5:30 PM. Ugh. As I recall, however, this may be the last time that we transition off DST. According to the Sunshine Protection Act, beginning in November 2023 the United States will remain permanently on DST! Think about it--we only have two more clock changes to suffer through!

We will see what today brings! It should be another great one.
