Morning At The Beach

These lovely cool winter mornings. 
I left home with the sunlight pushing up over the horizon though the orb itself only managed to break the horizon itself by the time I got down to the beach.
I met a dude sitting in a chair shown below. He was friendly enough and petted Rusty and asked how I was doing and so forth. He had had a close call recently the almost victim of unfortunate luck and now with life once again stretching out before him apparently limitless, he was approaching each day with renewed fervor. We watched the sun come up and he told me he was glad to be there and as Rusty dragged me off down the beach to his favorite spots it was a moment worth reflecting on. I am nto much given to telling people how to live but I was glad he shared the moment. I like to think I have made it a lifelong habt to live in the moment as much as I can. And its not an easy thing to do either.

The light tower would be Sombrero Light south of Marathon. Amazing telephoto lens on my Panasonic Camera.

Hmm, low low tide, for now no sailing.
And so back home under threatening skies.

The reason I follow your blog is to escape the realities of daily life for a few minutes each day. The photos of Key West and Rusty show a simpler side of life. The local politics of the community are similar to the ones I see here in my little corner of East TN. You and I don't share the same political views but I do enjoy your blogs. The national election is over whether we like the results or not. Some of my favorite bloggers have felt a need to express their political views in excess, instead of their views on motorcycling, etc. I don't need more negativity in my life and I've felt compelled to drop them from my reading list. Just saying!

What a contrast, Michael. I just got back from hiking through deep snow...
