A visit to Lantana, Florida and the Atlantic Ocean!
After we spent some time in the Tampa area, and at the Homosassa Springs area,
we went to the east coast to visit a dear friend in Lantana, Florida
and an Aunt in West Palm Beach.
As much as I love the Gulf waters, the Atlantic ocean was wonderful, too...
and the water was warmer.
So today, I am posting some random pictures of Lantana and the ocean there.
There is a lovely pier there and the pelicans like to land on the pier awnings:
I spied this little one playing on the beach..so focused! His mom was sitting up to the left keeping her eye on him, but he looked so cute, I had to use my long lens to capture him:
People and birds walking by the pier:
Chairs waiting for you and me!:
A hungry bird eating on the pier!:
We went here for breakfast..a wonderful place!:
Sun, sand, birds, ocean and people walking the beach...a lovely day!:
His big sister joined him in playing in the sand...
All kinds of these black capped seagulls on the shore:
If we would have had more time, I would have wanted to have a go
at that fishing pole!:
Can you hear the waves and the seagulls?:
We took a lovely stroll all the way down the pier, talked to some fisherman and visited the pelicans on the arched covers!:
I ADORE this picture of my friend Maureen picking seashells along the shore...
her hat was so cute:
Hello, Cutie Pie!:
What a wonderful face!:
Wonder what kind of sea vessels hooked up to this old chain pole. If only it could talk:
Under the pier:
(Look again at the top right of the picture, right under the pier floor..is that a man's ghost?)
This sunset picture is a trick picture.
Do you know why?:
Because the sun does not set on the ocean in Lantana..it is on the EAST coast of Florida...it gets sunRISES on the ocean...
this photo is actually a sunset on the GULF.
(Just wanted to mess with your head to see if you were paying attention!)
