Flagler Beach, Florida

Hello,

During one of our overnight trips we were close to Flagler Beach for a sunrise and a nice walk. This beach is on Florida's east coast, 20 miles north of Daytona Beach. I captured a beautiful sunrise and I included some birds seen nearby.






I am guessing that these are the Royal Tern below. It has the shaggy short crest.


Another guess, the Herring Gull, they have pink legs and feet.


A view of the beach, gulls and ocean.


Brown Pelicans floating with a fishing boat in the distance.


I may do another post with photos from this day, we went to Daytona Beach and the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse just down the road.

My thankful list:
I am thankful to see a beautiful sunrise.
I am thankful I am able to travel some during my retirement years.
I am thankful for all the wonderful comments on my blog post.

Thank you for your visit and comments on my post. Enjoy your day and the weekend ahead!

Thanks to Michelle for the meme Thankful Thursday

I am also linking up to Skywatch Friday, I hope to see you there.


Thank you to Sylvia, Yogi and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday.
