Most of the beach goers have gone home now that the sun has set. Only the towel family remain in their lounge chairs refusing to call an end to the day. They must not get out very much.
It's disorienting for me to experience such warmth in February - back home they recently had a raging blizzard.
The people may be mostly gone but, the gulls are everywhere looking for a few dropped morsels of food - and fighting viciously when one of their own finds something that might be edible.
And speaking of eating although it is still early, it is time to start thinking about dinner. Maybe the nearby "Big Pink" restaurant/bar? Of course, it's warm enough to sit out and dine al fresco anywhere. More than likely though for tonight, dinner will be leftovers heated in the microwave - old habits die hard and we do tend to be frugal. (We did have a great vegan burger here once). Many of the restaurants along Ocean Drive offer "2 for 1" lunch and/or drink specials - we are there. Another pair of thrifty retirees enjoying South Florida!
