Treasure Island, Florida 2020

I traveled to Florida from February 28th to March 12th. Luckily was able to enjoy the sun, sand, water and sea breezes before the spread of the coronavirus cancelled or delayed events and flights, etc. I enjoyed many walks along the Gulf beach. Found many treasures washed ashore and stood one early morning between the full moon setting and the fierce sun rising.

This photo is of the page I created in my journal of treasures that washed up on shore one morning.


waves crashing on sand

slip back into ocean’s fold

leaving sea treasures





Busy little birds along the shore at sunset.


sandpipers scuttle

surveying sand for supper

spy savory snails





Another day in paradise winds down…


magic hour at dusk

lone bird flies across the sun
