Do you want "Summer 2006" beach pics or "July 2006" beach pics?

Most of my '05/'06 summer beach photos went kaput in a HDD failure, I'll post a few of the ones still left on Flickr (only 800x600 though). I got a new flashy digital camera today so tomorrow morning I'll go get some pictures of the inclement July beach weather.

This coming summer ( '06/'07 ) should be a ripper for beach photos now that I have a decent camera. Hopefully come August I'll have some good photos from my trip down to the snow (if there is snow - crap season so far although it's starting to feel like winter again).

Here are three I took sometime around January or February early in the morning. Glorious summer morning it was.

I'm not picking on you here but it's just so strange to me to hear from someone who can't swim. You see, down here, a person that can't swim is as common as a person with two heads - we all just learnt to swim as kids, it was just what happened. Most of us started really early at the beach (80% of our population lives within a 2hr drive from the coast) or at pools, those who didn't would learn during primary (elementary to you guys) school whilst we learnt more technical stuff. I think every primary school has a swimming program here.

Not passing judgement but thank you for being my "oddity of the day."

To be honest, this is more of a 2006 spring beach picture. This was a tiny island. We had to take a boat to get there and there was nothing on the island. Completely remote.

Mine is the same way. I think mine can swim she's just afraid.:rolleyes:

Mine taught me how to swim, well, she taught me all the more technical "stroke refinement" stuff that makes me competitive in the pool to this day despite my total lack of fitness. I actually learnt to swim in Phoenix, AZ in our backyard pool.

I made a new thread for my own beach photos from today, you can see them all there.

Those are some excellent waves srf4real, where do you live at? I've been surfing in U.S. Westcoast and there were great waves (not enormous or anything), and everyone was so friendly, but I think your photos are taken in Australia, I'm probably going there next year :)

You sound like someone I know. Never got along terribly well with them. I couldn't care less about the sun or the temperature outside. Doesn't matter to me if I'm in shorts and a t-shirt or a huge jacket and snow pants during the Winter, air temperature really doesn't affect me too much (though the huge jacket and snow pants would be admittedly uncomfortable in the Summer.) So when we went out during the Summer, she always trade to find the shady route when I wanted to take the direct route, or at least a scenic one.

Can't stand water temperatures though. Water is just cold to me in general.

The news still talks about how dirty the Jersey beaches are, but mostly the high bacteria counts in the water. I visit for the arcade games instead.

Jellyfish suck. It does help keep tourists out of the lineup, though:p

Tourists keep me away from the beach.

I really should get over there before I leave Floriduh. If nothing else, I'd like to have a photo at sunrise on the Atlantic coast and a photo at sunset the same day on the gulf coast. I just need to select a couple of beaches.

There have been jelly fish at my beach yet people still go. :rolleyes:

Then they blare their 80's music and leave trash on our property.

the original is huge so here (http://blue.yo-momma.net/upload/files/1/KeyWest1.jpg) is a sized down copy that might fit a 12" powerbook a bit better. ;)

The easiest / shortest distance would be Daytona Beach in the a.m., then take I-4 west to Tampa in the p.m.... i think. plus you could see two of Florida's finest metro areas, well Daytona is different, that's for sure.

Most of my shots are from Brevard county beaches, just too lazy to get there at sunrize.

I was thinking about Cocoa Beach or Melbourne Beach since they're fairly close--I'm in Oviedo. From there, I'd probably head to Clearwater for Skyline Chili and stop somewhere along U.S. 19 near those touristy hotels for the sunset shots.

Beautiful pictures. After seeing all these nice beaches, I've got one question,
should water be blue like in all your pictures? Beaches in Holland look much different... http://www.murphy.nl/~marca/IMG_1406s.jpg

yup. If you come to Melbourne Beach this Thursday you will catch some epic swells in that sunrise shot! Also, two pilot whales were spotted fifty yards from shore yesterday morning.

No worries. I still sized it a bit to fit a 30" display, since that's about as big as it gets and in the interst of saving bandwidth...

You were in Hawaii in March? How did you like the rain? I was on the Big Island, which was fairly dry most of the time:

Missed it for the most part since we were staying on the leeward side of Maui, though when we went to Hana we definitely got wet.

I've been to the Big Island a few time to cheer on my sister in the Kona Triathlon (1/2 ironman). The first time there I went to the same overlook. Still looks as beautiful as ever. :)

Wow beaches are odd over there. Here in Australia they are actually white sand with waves and stacks more space!
