Sunset Surprise

SDP 12-413
Rounding the bend at Lovers Key State Park in Ft. Myers is like stepping into a different world.  It's a desolate beach covered with seashells, and seabirds pecking for dinner.  The last thing you'd expect  is for a park ranger to pull up in a four-wheeler and tell you the park is closed…please go away.  ((sigh))  At least I nabbed this sunset shot before my plans were washed up.

Too bad that you cannot walk the beach out-of-season. What did he think . . . you planned a polar dip in the sea? Lovely color of the sky; a nice memory of the beach.

Such a peaceful scene. And, really beautiful too.

Beautiful, I wonder if the ranger saw that scene as he did what I guess was his job for the day? Seize the moment to take a photo!! Greetings from Jean.

How sad to keep such a beautiful place closed.

Beautiful shot! Too bad the moment had to be marred by a park ranger...even if he was "just" doing his job.
