On the way to the beach…

We passed by the ranch again and I got some ‘fly by’ photos.

(the gate is in my post last week…HERE)

It was neat seeing the cows in the field this time.

And the weather was beautiful for a day at the beach.

Do you think this is a ‘friendly’ fence?

It separates the public beach from Canaveral National Seashore. And yes, I have a bag of shells….more than ONE bag! lol

Our highs are around 80 all this week and the breeze was over the water, keeping it cool and comfortable.

Your weather now is our summer weather and my spring would be your worst winter. It is like comparing apples and oranges. = D Yes, it is a nice open fence so it is friendly like you!

Montanagirl said...

Yup, the cows make that photo perfect! And again, and if you keep showing these Waterlogues, I'm gonna have to get an iPad. lol.

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

What kind of shells did you find??

Musings from Kim K. said...

I want your beach weather! What fun to be collecting shells and enjoying such beautiful scenery.

Diane said...

That last pic is very cool. Ahh, 80s... Don't know if I remember what that feels like...

ann said...

Lovely beach photos. We are in the 50s this week. As long ad the wind does not blow, we are comfortable. It is just nice to see the sun. Have a good week end.

Patricia Hinkel said...

I never think about seeing cows there. What a lovely place...The Good Fences party theme looks like fun. &
80 degree weather sounds glorious.
Hope you have a wonderful day!

Stephanie said...

It looks so beautiful and warm there! Can I come for a visit? :) When I was younger my grandparents from Canada would always go to Florida for several months during the Winter and my parents and I would join them for a week or two. We always went to Disney World . . . I miss that.

Happy weekend, friend! Love and hugs!

Linda R said...

Looks so beautiful there. And how fun to collect sea shells on the beach. One of my favorite things to do.

Hope you have a nice weekend.

Hugs~

edenhills said...

That's the best of both--beautiful farm scenery and then a beach. Lovely captures.

W. Latane Barton said...

What a nice trip to the beach and you got to see some interesting things on the way. I'd say that's pretty perfect!

Elaine at Bramble Rambles said...

That all looks so warm and beautiful. It is definitely time I visited a beach ... I'll have to wear plenty of layers though!

Pam said...

Love that ranch and those cows, brings back lots of good memories. Glad you're enjoying nice warm weather! It's very chilly, cloudy,windy and dreary here and will be that way for the next week they say. At least it's not snowing. :-)

cucki said...

Wow looking so warm and so lovely :)

Art @ Home said...

Oh, no…no pretty spring weather around here. It stormed this morning and it looks like the bottom is about to drop at any moment. Not conducive for house training a puppy, either! :/

Beth @ E. Lizard Breath Speaks said...

gorgeous scenes. have a great weekend. take care. ( :

cynthia lee designs said...

Deb~Paxton Valley Folk Art said...

Well I don't know about friendly but it certainly isn't very secure LOL! Happy beach combing, Deb

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

If you cross that fence, do the beach police come ask for money? LOL
Love that top shot- that is a super fence.

Butterfly 8)(8 Bungalow said...

Love the photos!

Shelia said...

The fence is great and I'm sure it's a friendly one! :) Lovely snaps and I really like your Waterloged one too.
Have a great weekend and thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia;)

NanaDiana said...

GREAT Spring pictures but it still feels like winter here. Snow tonight and temps in the 20s. xo Diana

Doreen@househoneys said...

Your pictures are idyllic. It's always a joy to come here and see how the 'other half' lives ;).

Yesterday was lovely here in the NE, but today was cold and rainy. It was actually 25 degrees colder than yesterday. Go figure.

Have a great weekend!!

eileeninmd said...

I always enjoy seeing the field of cows! And it looks like you had a great day for the beach! Wonderful series! Have a happy weekend!

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Yah, our highs are around...well just about frosty, lol.

Loving the landscape there, it's so flat and wide.

I was so surprised our first trip to Florida to learn how much agricultural land there is/ It's wonderful to have both the beach and the farmland isn't it? And so neat you show both here in this one post.

helen tilston said...

Hello Diane
You captured the pastorial grazing of the cows beautifully. It surprises visitors to know that there is a record number of cows in Florida state.I love your beach images and hope you got some special shells

have a wonderful weekend

Barbara said...

Still foolish in NJ but better than winter! :)

Carola Bartz said...

I love fences, it's so much fun to take pictures of them. And I also love collecting shells and other treasuries (driftwood) at the beach - I always do when we're at the ocean.

Jeanne said...

Very nice photos. Making me want to visit Florida right now!

June Caedmon said...

Lovely shots, Diane! Was hoping to see some of those shells {smile} I see your on Goodreads, would love to connect with you there, too! Have a blessed week!

bettyl-NZ said...

What lovely photos! The weather looks so awesome. I do like your edit, too.

Diane Writes said...

A great and relaxing view! The ranch and the view that ends at the beach are my perfect weekend getaways.. if only these places are near my hometown.

Thank you for sharing us these beautiful pictures and sceneries.

Have a great weekend namemate :)

nookworm said...

I never thought much of fences before now, and the beach fence is unusual as I go to the SC beach and have never seen one like it. Now I am inspired to look for a "friendly fence."

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

You are making me miss Florida Diane, it's nice to see blue water and a beach again. I like the bunny mug you picked up, it would be sweet filled with chocolate for a gift.

And love those open green fields!
