Sand Key

I took this picture at Sand Key a couple of weeks ago…beautiful, no?

Tropical Storm Debby has finally passed over. After almost a week of rain being swept inland from the Gulf, here in the interior of Florida I can smell the salt air. And I love it! Though the humidity is high and the sun is warm, I love that curious smell of the salt air. It is especially interesting how it blends with the sandy aroma of palmettos and bahia…. It won’t last long, so I am enjoying it while I can!

I love the smell of the beach, anyways–there is always a wildness in it that both fascinates and terrifies me. The vastness of the ocean is overwhelming to me–but the attraction of the sea draws my adventerous spirit…
