Henderson Beach State Park

I’m just not a beach person.MsBoyink

I have heard these words come out of my wife several times over the last few weeks.

This, after getting up for many Myrtle Beach Sunrises. And Melbourne Florida Sunrises.  And Cape Canaveral rocket launches. Oh - and a few Tampa beach sunsets.

This weekend we are at Henderson Beach State Park in Destin, Florida.

It’s an impossible park to get into this time of year. We were the lucky recipient of someone else’s change of plans. They cancelled, we reserved.

Crissa and I have gone for a couple of walks on the beach - to the tune of 4 miles worth each time. We removed our shoes and splashed through the clear, cool water.

We made a “beach day” of it yesterday - packing a lunch and carrying our chairs down to the water for a few hours. We read. We swam. We threw a frisbee. We got sunburns (where we missed with the lotion).

I think MsBoyink is actually a beach person. Just not of the “lay out in the sun all day” type.

 

It's not your classic sunrise, but pretty in it's own way.
