The first night we drove down to Sanibel Island so that I could do some shell hunting on the beach. The word they have some of the best shells anywhere. I guess it is good that it was not too sunny or I would have looked like a cooked lobster. There were dark clouds to the North as my brother and I strolled the beach looking for shells. I did find some good ones. The the thunder started rumbling so we jogged most of the way back. The dark clouds do make for wonderful photography so it was all good.
One of the days we went North from Tampa to a place Called Richards Beach which is along a river close to the Gulf of Mexico, we did a little swimming. After that we drove to another beach on the coast and I snapped this photo on the way back. The coastal swamps are very scenic.
I am one of those people that always wants a window seat when I fly and I spend much of the flight looking out of the window watching the landscape below change. There is such a variety of things to see flying from Subtropical Florida to Desert New Mexico. I have no idea where this photo is. My best guess Louisiana or East Texas but I love the fields and shapes below and it might make a good jumping off point for an art quilt.
