Curry Hammock State Park Regretful in Key West
We are on Day 12 at Curry Hammock which means this is my 12th sunrise. The clouds are ever present at dawn but so is the pastel color.
There are a number of spots from which to take pictures even as the color fades.
This morning it looks as though the crabs and the birds have crossed paths in the night. The track looks a little too big for this mama willet or her chicks.
The light is golden and makes these pictures of the trio look almost like a painting. They are my favorite shots from today.
In the west, the clouds are painted pink and reflecting in the water.
It’s fun to watch the battle between the sun and the clouds.
Of course we know who is going to win this one no matter how dark and ominous the clouds look.
Back at the house, I look out the living room window and see this in the bush just outside. Pretty well camouflaged
I do love watching my neighbors even though I know they are illegal immigrants and should be deported.
Such a fetching pose. And look at those eyes.
Very different faces though I’m pretty sure they are all the Common Green Iguana which can be green, brown, gray or black. Apparently Gertie is a juvenile since she is a bright green and doesn’t have the dark adult tail stripes. She has that youthful innocent look doesn’t she?
This afternoon, we finally make it to Sombrero Beach. Why in the world did it take us so long?? This is a real beach in both directions.
Once in the water, I give it two thumbs up!!
I even coax David into the water which is warm enough for even the most die hard cold phobic.
It’s a perfect day for the beach. We set up our umbrella and chairs and settle in.
In and out of the water we go. Few things better than lying back in the water and relaxing on nature’s waterbed. I can float all day but I have to keep myself awake or who knows where I’ll end up. Speaking of naps, and safer ones, we even manage for David to elevate his feet which have been swelling more than usual lately.
We’re plenty happy with this day that’s for sure.
I notice that this beach brings out romance.
It brings out some other things too although from the ‘attitude’ it doesn’t look much like romance despite the attire.
The sun is dropping low in the sky and the color has started by the time we pack up and head back home. We hadn’t thought we’d stay as long as sundown and didn’t bring any snacks so we’re both too hungry to stay and see the sun set here but it would clearly be a lovely spot for it.
We do get back in time to see the after color in our own sunset spot which is just as beautiful. David kindly puts the dinner together so I can get out in time to catch these pictures of the pinks and oranges of sunset.
Vegetable stroganoff with spinach salad and bread is dinner for tonight.
Delicious end to a great day at Sombrero Beach.
