Harbour Town Marina - Fort Pierce FL
Sunday morning - a day to rest....well, after a 6 mile run and a late "sleep in" for someone!! Breakfast brunch...and then the beach beckoned for us to visit! A short drive (10 minutes) to Hutchinson Island south and miles upon miles of rolling Atlantic surf, very hot sands(!) and cumulus skies. Interestingly, the beach was darker sand than across the water in the Bahamas - due to the shell composition mainly mother of pearl oyster shell fragments and no coral. The holiday competition starts with a match of beach bowls - although not "Petanque" this time - just back to playing good old "English family rules"! A stop-over at a Tiki Bar on the way back overlooking Fort Pierce entrance reminded us it was memorial Day bank holiday weekend - the musician was playing very patriotic songs(!), the crowd were up saluting(!), singing(!) and dancing(!) .... we all had a very good time. Dockside bbq rounded off the restful day...oh the final of Lord of the Rings!
