Theme Day: Smell

SDP 5-1-16
We're back from a trip to Houston and settled into the SDP offices in time for Theme Day in the City Daily Photo community.  Today's theme is an interesting one:  Smell.  For me (who can be a bit olfactory system challenged), being at the beach can evoke many, varied scents:  from the smell of the salty sea air, to wet sand, crustaceans washed ashore and, of course, the occasional whiff of suntan lotion being applied.  Sometimes you can even smell a rainstorm rolling in. This photo was taken on beautiful Lido Beach in the Sarasota city limits.  To see more interpretations of today's Theme Day click here.  Hope everyone is well in the blogosphere!  P.S.: The entire SDP staff is looking forward to resuming our tour of Everglades National Park very soon!

As we are heading into winter, your photo is so warming. Beautiful white sand, no wonder families so enjoy being there.

What a beautiful shot! So I'm not the only one slightly olfactory challenged?

Don't you wish there were a way for us to show out-of-region viewers how wonderful the beaches smell?

I don't think I've ever been on a beach as white as sugar. This one is beautiful.

I grew up within walking distance of the Atlantic Ocean, so the smell always takes me back to my childhood. I just love that salt air! This is a great post for the theme.

One of my very favourite smells SRQ and one of the reasons I live by the coast :)
