After endless months of hot, humid weather, a cold front came through Central Florida yesterday and dropped the temperature down into the mid-70s. Boy, were we glad to see that!
Terry and I had doctors’ appointments in New Smyrna Beach in the early afternoon, and when we finished up with that we drove a mile or two to the beach for some vitamin sea. It was a beautiful day, with a gentle breeze blowing, and not a cloud in the sky.
Here in Volusia County, you can drive on the beach, which makes it very nice. We found a spot and backed in, facing the water.
There were not a lot of people out because it was kind of breezy and cool, but after all the hot weather we have had for so many months, as far as I’m concerned, cool is cool.
A kayak and a paddleboard were pulled out of the water, and a couple of fellows were standing in the surf fishing. One of them caught something, but we were too far away to see what it was.
Only a few people ventured out into the water like this woman, and none of them stayed in for very long before coming back to shore and finding a towel to wrap up in.
Yes, Florida has heat, humidity, bugs, alligators, and hurricanes. But it also has days like this, and to me, that’s a pretty darned good trade-off!
I’m glad for the cold front for another reason. We are having some fill dirt delivered today to replace what was lost when we had the big tree taken out of our yard last week. It will make things a lot easier as we spread it out in preparation for the citrus trees we have coming in a week or so.

Thought For The Day – My high school was so small that we had to use the same car for drivers education and sex education.
I always liked visiting the local beach. It was calming and always beautiful. And I didn’t need to go into the water to enjoy it. Nice photos; thanks for sharing them.
