If you are seeking creative ideas, go out walking. Angels whisper to a man when he goes for a walk. ~Raymond Inmon

Walking provides an easy & inexpensive way to get fit.  It's good for the body and the soul.  Walking gets the heart pumping, detoxes your lymph system and gets the ole head back into good space.  I've tried walking every day but my schedule is kinda crazy and it just doesn't work out for me.  My rule of thumb is not to go 2 days in a row without walking at least 2 miles.  I do tend to get bored walking the same path all the time.  A beach walk is the perfect way to mix things up. We had a rainy day here in SWFL so today was perfect to walk the 1.3 miles out to the end of Stump Pass and back.  It was a light, drizzly rain (for the most part) so I donned my raincoat and got moving.

The tide was rising on the very southern end of Stump Pass State Park.

At low tide this sandbar is uncovered leaving a nice siesta spot for the birds.  In another hour it will be submerged as the tide rises.

We humans could take a lesson about co-existence from these birds. Thankfully there was no signs of red tide although the wrack line was littered with fish carcasses.

This huge shell pile was going under the water fast.

The shell trees are in bloom again.

Beach walking is never boring.

  3. I like to walk....and walking on the beach takes it to a new level! I dream of living close enough to walk on the beach every day! I'll go to the park today though...want to join me? Love your photos! Sweet hugs!

  4. I love the last "Beach Walking" photo. It's like God is coming right thru the light in the center of the picture. Beautiful. Hope everything is going good by you. xo
