Another windy day! When I wash my hair, I could stand outside to dry it and it would take about 5 minutes, though I might be chilly by then.

A few years  in New Mexico, I did just that. The difference is that N.M. is hot and dry. I walked outside with wet hair and  in about 1 minute, the hot, dry wind had blown it into a perfectly dry brillo pad.

Since we fought the wind getting back with our kayak yesterday, we decided not to try it again today. So it's been deflated and packed away and we won't use it again until this Summer at home. There is a nice river near us to paddle up and down on.

We went back to the Barrier Island Center and walked on the nature trail. Nice exercise; nothing of birds or animals to see. Walked down to the beach and almost got blown away.

Came back to camp, where I walked the length of Scout Island (it's quite small) and Ken did a little fishing, then went to the beach to metal detect.

Tomorrow, we move a little further north, to Disneyland and Universal Studios. I will be on my yearly quest for a new Jiminy Cricket.

We've had to shut the windows at night again and this morning we had the heater on. Bah!

Some Barrier Island Center pics.....
A driftwood tree hung with beach glass

The main purpose of the Center is the protection of the Sea Turtles, so there were some turtle art around.

Some cute road signs by the nature walk....

These were 2-sides signs. This one faced the wrong way as we drove. My sweet hubby pulled off the road onto the median (and part of the sidewalk) so I could hop out (heeheehee) and take this pic.
 

Some of the sights on the nature walk......
This was a strangely aromatic tree, attracting both butterflies and bees.
A very loopy tree and an un-loopy hubby
The bin says: reuse, recycle, reduce and is all cut out in leaf and bird patterns.


The endangered coastal something (the pink one) whos' name I've forgotten
Pretty!

The ocean, looking windy.


Here in Florida, people go in for the unusual, as shown by these mailboxes......
This is a seashell...
A manatee, in a kitchen apron....

A replica of a Chickee, which the Seminole Indians used to live in....
A Dolphin mom and her baby.....


A Dolphin and a Turtle coming out of his egg.....
A Seahorse......
Turtles are very popular here.....
A Flamingo!......
This is a tile wall outside the local market, depicting baby turtles hatching out and heading for the sea.

Whew! That was a lot of pics! Now I'm going to make a cup of coffee and read; currently a re-read: "In This House Of Brede" by Rumer Godden. Cheers!
