Skywatch Friday - Fort Desoto beach

Beautiful sea oats at Fort Desoto beach. This was taken 2 weekends ago. I think it might have been the last time I saw blue sky and the sun. It's been raining almost every day since.

Another trip to my favorite place, Fort Desoto. It was very hot and there were hardly any shorebirds around. I only had my small point and shoot in the beach bag so I didn't take a lot of pictures. Hubby and I were sitting in our beach chairs and a ranger pulls up in a truck near us and starts to rope off the above turtle nest site. I was tempted to run over and ask him how he knew there was a turtle nest there. It was in the middle of a row of sand dunes. I guess early that morning someone noticed a turtle track leading there and notified them. I stopped and took a picture as we were leaving. The little grasshopper was sitting close by.


  1. Love that white sand & blue skies!

    Happy SWF - Enjoy your weekend

  2. Too bad for rain but I like the sea oats. They don't grow here.

  3. I love your first shot, looks like a beautiful place. Cool capture of the grasshopper.

  4. Beautiful images Dina... These are just like dreams ;-)

  5. You did an amazing job on your photos. Usually grasshoppers are not still long enough. You have a very nice blog and I enjoyed your post.
