A New Mexican in Florida-Part V

Perhaps the most beautiful place I visited on my trip to Florida was Canaveral National Seashore, a beautiful, 24-mile-long strip of pristine, undisturbed beach on the east coast of Florida. It was a beautiful day, and the white sand and azure water were stunning.

Some readers may recognize the distant beachcombers.

There were a number of people fishing in the surf …

I loved watching the little Sanderlings busily foraging at the edge of the surf.

This Boat-tailed Grackle appeared to be in charge of the dunes.
