September Pictures - Each moment of the year has its own beauty, a picture which was never before and shall never be seen again. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown,
for going out, I found, was really going in.
-John Muir

Here, on the beach, I escape everything worrisome, petty, & mundane.  In the late afternoon, as the waning fall sun begins it's slide, yellow and orange light wash over my "Sanibel-stooping" body as I pick up shark's teeth and shells.  It's actually the Englewood squat because after all I'm not on Sanibel and sadly  I am not on Manasota Key either due to the red tide algae bloom.

  The red tide seems to be waning to the south of Sarasota but on Manasota Key and to the north up to Nokomis Beach there are lots of dead fish washed up on the beach.  The irritation from the airborne algae is still causing beachgoers to hack & sneeze.  Click on the Mote Marine link on my sidebar for the latest conditions on your local Florida beaches.

Sounds of the wind or sounds of the sea
make me happy just to be.
-June Polis

Lose yourself in nature and find peace.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth
find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.
-Rachel Carson

The happiest man is he who learns from nature the lesson of worship.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
