Flagler Beach, Florida
We have been exploring a little and we really love this area. There is a lot to do and most of it very close by.
Our campground is fine. Not too crowded and we have plenty of privacy. Our spot is facing so that we get full afternoon sun on the awning side, but for $42 for a two week stay, I guess we can’t complain. I’ll post some pictures tomorrow of the campground and our site.
We found two very nice ocean front campgrounds. One is $31 a night and the other is $75. Guess which one we like the best? I will post the post the pictures tomorrow.
I just wanted to post a few pictures of Flagler Beach. It’s just minutes from our campground, so we’ll be watching a lot of sunrises.
The following are pictures from yesterday afternoon. That is the Atlantic Ocean and it was a little rough out there.
Some boys were chasing a flock of gulls.
Several shrimp boats a few miles offshore.
We went back to the beach this morning to watch the sunrise. We were lucky it didn’t decide to rise until 7:33 am…because we weren’t in the mood to crawl out of our nice warm bed!
It was well worth the effort though. There is something very special about watching the sunrise over the ocean. The temperature was perfect, cool enough to be able to wear a light jacket, but not cold.
There were a lot of clouds in the sky so we didn’t know if we’d be able to see anything.
Some areas were a little more clear than others.
Soon, we could see the sun beginning to peep up over the horizon.
The clouds didn’t quite go down to the horizon.
As the sun got higher, it disappeared into the clouds.
We stayed around and chatted with a local woman we met while taking pictures. She gave us some suggestions of other places to go. She was a photographer and has her own website where I assume she sells some of her work. I haven’t had time to check it out yet but I’ll bet she has some great pictures.
More tomorrow. I think this area is going to call for more than one blog post a day! There is really a lot to do around here.
if anyone can tell me how to correct the spelling on my new header photo, I’d sure appreciate it! I added a caption and realized later I misspelled sunrise! Duh
