This tree is on a side path going towards Sunnybrooke Park from Edwards Gardens. It is 1.7k or a 2 mile walk from one park to the other. The tree is alive even though it has been split possibly from the way it is bent. The leaves are touching the ground.
This sapling is in Bluffer’s Park and has spent it’s young life being buffeted by strong winds. Obviously the winds were strong and constant to have bent it in this permanent position. I wonder how this tree is doing, I should go and check on it.
At the Don Cesar Hotel in St Petersburg Fl I went to the Gulf Beach and wandered the beach looking for something interesting that captured my eye. As I walked I saw the waves washing over this sand dollar filled with shells and surrounded by seaweed. I finally decided to capture a wave just after it washed over the sand dollar and shells.
