A day at the beach with the grandkids!

I am posting on my phone so pics will be random. We had subs for lunch at Subway, and went to the Turtle Center at Loggerhead Park in Juno Beach, Florida today. We saw injured turtles that are brought in for treatment and released back into the ocean when healed. Sadly there are so many. There is a great informational indoor area, and the turtles are outside in tanks.
After that, we hiked a few short beach trails there, to a nice lookout where we could see the Atlantic ocean for miles out. You can see we were on one paved path amongst a sea of scrubby palmettos! Quite a thing to see! Got a picture of the beach side where the waves were rolling in nicely with the pier in the background.
It was a lovely afternoon.

Wow, that looks really interesting. Trust me, there are no turtles on the beach in Oregon. They would freeze to death. We do have pond turtles and a rather nasty breed that is non-native. Looks like a fun day!

What a great spot Julie. I always enjoyed taking the grandies to places like that when I had them in the holidays.
It must have been so interesting seeing the turtles.
