Return to the Bluff

 

Itís been 45 years but I went down to the bay side of the National Live Oaks Reserve to see if the old yellow bluff where we used to go to party and look for Indian pottery was still intact.Here are a few shots we took while we were there on the 4th of July.

across the beach and bleached silver by the sun and salt.

The bluff drops sharply away just behind them.

 

Wish I had taken more photos but we were on our way to the Fort Pickens area and, later, dinner at Hemingwayís and the fireworks on the beach.

Dang, itís been a long time between visits.
