Yesterday I finally got around to going to West Gulf to walk on the beach. The parking areas on West Gulf are reserved for residents with A stickers. This is a real perk in the winter months when the other beaches are crowded with tourists. West Gulf is populated mostly by private homes so it tends to be less crowded.
There weren't really a lot of shells on the beach--at least the kind I was interested in. It was also very hot and I figured that even though I was covered with 50 lotion, I shouldn't stay out too long. So, I wandered back to the car. Now when one can't find shells on the beach, one should look for shells along the path. I love finding these little tree snail shells.And to put a perfect ending on my trip to the beach, this guy waved at me (well not really) as I was driving over the bridge coming back into Periwinkle Park.
