When we go to the beach there is nothing I like more than to take in the view of the beautiful expanse of sea that lays before me. I enjoy scoping out the various cargo ships and military ships that weigh anchor out in the vastness. At night, when the lights from the ships are the only clues that there is life out there they look like ships from the 1800s. I like to imagine that we are living in such a time and believe that the ship is coming in to deliver travelers from afar off.
It is this time of year in Southern Florida that the "snow birds" come to visit. These are the travelers that come from Europe and Canada and countless other regions of the earth to escape the cold of their home and enjoy the warm sun of "Sunny Florida". I find it fascinating to hear parents from different countries and tongues speak to their children while they play on the playground. Sometimes I can figure out what language is being spoken and other times I have not idea. I just know from the way the family is dressed that it's a European language. Sometimes I see people take a seat on a nearby picnic table and just spend hours looking at the ocean. There is something mesmerising about the water much like looking at a fire crackling in it's hearth. I haven't minded the cold snap we are experiencing here but I am looking forward to the sunny days to come much like are seen in these photos from a few weeks ago.
