Boat Ramp At Big Coppitt

We have been developing predictable patterns of weather lately, rather in the way summer thunderstorms rake mainland Florida this rime of year. Mornings are lovely and calm, like this:


The ramp is a free public facility with some parking and access to the water for boats on trailers.


For Cheyenne the seaweed that had accumulated at the ramp was the source of greatest interest while I played with the camera.


There are trash cans and sign boards reminding boaters and anglers how to behave on the water.


Much of the information is not really necessarily for locals.


With neither boat nor pole all I had to do was stand and stare and marvel at the beauty around me. Big Coppitt, Mile Marker Ten to the west:


Not all waterfront homes are expensive, but all homes here are subject to loud jets taking off and landing from Boca Chica Naval Air Station. It's worth knowing that jets fly low over here for anyone thinking about living on Big Coppitt.


Some people keep their boats in the bay and the add a picturesque touch.


Some are commercial boats:


It is a beautiful spot here, at this informal park.


What I like about driving Highway One is that it's possible to stop almost anywhere alongside the highway. And when stopped to get a great view almost anywhere.

If there is a perpetual moment I would live again and again, it would be that first glimmer of a sunshine on still waters in the morning with that first cup of pipping hot coffee with cream and stevia in it.

You can live that moment every day assuming the weather cooperates.

There is nothing like a view of life over opern water... Unless the water is 30 meeters high and coming at you at 70 miles per hour. Then it gets old fast.

I like flat water. This is my time of year.
