A Day at the Beach

My husband and I drove to Estero FL on Saturday and walked around Lovers Key State Park.  It was a fine day on the beach.

A PSE artistic filter - water color - was added to each of the photos.  As a result, adding a texture did not seem necessary.  What do you think?

How nice to walk the beach at this time of year! No beach walking here! Unless you like storm watching! I do love your photos and think they are perfect the way they are! xx

Lovely pictures. Looks so nice and warm. I live in Michigan, so cold and gray here right now. I am stopping by from Lissa's Walk and Click Wednesday.

Pat, I love your beach pictures. Lovely shells and gull. I was especially taken with the horseshoe crab since I haven't seen one for years. In 1964 I lived in Tampa and saw them on the Bay all the time. Thanks for joining Walk and Clik Wednesdays!

Love all of these, I am a beach girl through and through! But I have to say I'm so jealous you found that horseshoe crab! I'm so ready for warmer weather, it's been cold and rainy here on the Texas coast.

Oh how I love these! the beach soothes my soul! I am on countdown to return to the beach...less than 30 days, and I can hardly contain myself! Thanks for the breath of ocean air.

I LOVE that watercolor filter! All the images are beautiful. I might have to try a bit of that. I'm still looking for my "signature" style. :)
