Sand, Surf, and Sea – What’s beneath your Feet?

The Daily Post asked us: Today, look down and document the world beneath your feet.

Thanks for stopping by to enjoy this hot summer photo interlude. I look forward to seeing you all again!

    1. Thanks, Irene. These are all from the spring. It is so hot we can’t even go to the beach now. We will be moving to the mountains of Colorado soon. I am ready for a new adventure. ❤

      1. I understand you, some days I just take a cold shower instead of walking to the beach. It is also very hot here except for the last days, where we have had thunder and rain.
        It sounds exiting with your movement. Maybe there are not so many snakes and crocodiles in Colorado? I read often about these problems in Florida.
        Good to hear that you are ready 😀

        1. Another chapter in the journey, Irene. Yes, it will be a good move. Our daughter is only 11 hours away. We are ready to get back to the four seasons. In Florida you only have two seasons: hot and cold! LOL!

          1. Yes. I can’t wait. The humidity is so bad that it is hard to breathe. Worst summer I have ever had in Florida. Oh well. Just another fun time ahead. ❤

        1. Oh, I like that saying! The house goes on the market listing as of Wednesday. Then we wait until an offer is made. Once we have that, then we are driving to Colorado to buy another house. Then we drive home, I pack up and we drive back. WHEW! I am worn out already. 😀 ❤

          1. I will email you the ones we are thinking about as it gets closer. I will be happy to see mountains again. ❤

    1. I have no idea how long it will be till we sell this house. The real estate agent thought it would go quickly. No worries. I will stay in touch and let you know. I didn’t email you because I thought you were on vacation. 😉

  1. Oh, glorious photos of a wonderful beach. I’m so jealous. I’ve nto been to the beach once this summer. I know you say it’s too hot now but I’d love a few days of hot, hot, hot sunshine. Then I could cope with our miserabel summer again!
    Your move sounds exciting.

    1. Our temperature today is 97 degrees F. With the heat index (humidity) it feels like 112 degrees F. That is too hot. We long for the four seasons. It will be cold with some snow, but hey I grew up in that. I am good. We lived in Montana for 17 years and for two years up in the mountains in Arizona. 😀

      1. Omg it is way too much! You need a sprinkler 24×7!
        You are ready for the mountains without regret! And if you grew up with lower temps, it’s much easier for you to readapt.
        In any case I hope that these extreme heat waves don’t become a norm.

        1. I hope not. The last two summers were not this hot. It is time for us to move to a more temperate climate. And autumn color! I can’t wait. 😀

  2. It is so beautiful, Colleen, but I really understand your desire for 4 seasons. I just can’t handle the heat and humidity of summer any more. And Colorado…what a great choice. Wishing you positivity moving forward. You will glow, wherever you are ! ☺ Van

        1. I’ll say. We are retired military. We’re used to moving. It’s exciting. Now, let’s hope it all goes swiftly and easily. 💗

  3. I’m never sure what’s beneath my feet any more. Ultimately it’s quicksand, because that’s what this town is built on, but in my 16th floor apartment it’s dirty carpet covered with packed cartons, waiting for my move down the hall. If/when that day arrives, I will have new carpeting, hopefully of a nicer color, and unpacked boxes that can be hauled out to the dumpster, or recycled for use by someone else, depending on the shape they are in.

    You should move to Kentucky, not as hot as FL, most of the time, with lots of color in Autumn. My town isn’t the best place though. They cut the real trees down and replaced them with concrete trees. Stupidity reigns supreme.

      1. Oh, yes. Both of my sisters are in Colorado. I would be there also, but the mountains and my MS are not compatible. KY heat and humidity can be bad in my area, but, I’m used to this, and it’s only short periods at a time so I can adapt.

        Will the Swamp Fairy travel with you, or become a mountain waif?

        1. Ha, Ha, sweet Angel. She is coming along for the ride. She wants me to finish the tale that I am writing. My book will have to slide a bit until this winter, but that works. I know there are all kinds of mythical creatures and beings in the mountains. They have a way of finding me. ❤

    1. Yes, Viva. My swamp fairy will come with me. She still wants the story written. I am getting there, just slowly. The heat and humidity are just too much for us. It is amazing how when you are 25 or even 35 the heat doesn’t bother you. LOL! Ah, well. Change is good for the soul. We will be closer to our oldest daughter too. That will be nice. ❤
