"Strong winds buffet the sea oats and tall dune grasses, tossing sand and seabirds where it will... ."
~Karen White, The Memory of Water

Took a ride along Pensacola Beach this morning. After stopping off at Native Cafe for breakfast (where the tourists outnumbered the natives by 10-1), we headed for the Gulf Islands National Seashore. As we headed towards Ft. Pickens, we ran into a "Road Closed" sign. So we turned around and headed in the opposite direction towards Park East. Another sign greeted us that said, "Road Closed to Thru Traffic." Well, we weren't going "through" to Navarre Beach, so we circumvented the sign and drove along the shore for awhile. The sea oats are just beautiful and the winds from Tropical Storm Debby had them bending gracefully with the breeze. Thankfully, we left the "cone of uncertainty" and today the skies were blue and the breeze, while gusty, was welcome. It was a magnificent day on our part of the Gulf.

Our breakfast spot.

Sea Oats bending with the wind.

The golden glow of Sea Oats


  1. Those sea oats are beautiful, I especially love the second shot! Great news about the storm moving off, here's to more good weather.

  2. Ah lovely. It's a rainy city again here today so you can imagine how much I'm enjoying these!

  3. And I love the way the sand, sea oats and clouds seem to be following the same lines.
