Little Talbot Island State Park opened on Thursday, May 14, 2020. It is a 5 1/2 mile stretch of beach with no commercial structures. They are open to 50% capacity so we got there early. What a treat! When we left the park around 3pm, the cones were up at the Ranger Station and the beach was closed to incoming traffic.
Plenty of wonderful sunshine, blue skies with patches of white clouds and the wind blowing at approximately 15 mph from the northeast provided a wonderful breeze with temperatures hovering around 78 F (26C) all morning. The tide was going out and water was crystal clear.
Jacksonville has been one of the ports to allow cruise lines to dock their ships in our berths and anchor them offshore during the shutdown. There was another one anchored way offshore behind this one. It was quite hazy at times this morning so I couldn’t make out which cruise line this was.
One of my best friends from the Tampa Bay area came to Jacksonville this weekend for a visit. Her and her husband have been staying in like so many of us and we are all well. She hadn’t left her house in 6 weeks and has been working from home. It is great having them here.
Please note: I’m very anxious about the state re-opening so soon and we are continuing to do our part with social distancing and wearing our masks when contact is too close for comfort. We went to the restrooms and had to wear those awful wonderful masks to keep us safe. It was excruciatingly hot and hard to breathe but at least we were at the beach!

Life with my camera
age is just a (biggish) number
Looking ahead, without looking back (too often)
Curiosity run amok . . .
Smile;) Its daisy
The camera gave me an incredible freedom. It gave me the ability to parade through the world and look at people and things very, very closely. Carrie Mae Weems
