Evelyn was here walking the beach with me on the first weekend I saw lifeguards actually guarding lives from their official red towers. I think it was April 22. In the north Memorial Day weekend starts the lifeguard season but here it's a month earlier. Today when I set out for my low-tide walk there were no lifeguards on duty in Melbourne Beach or even at Nance Park in Indialantic; however by the time I finished my walk the MB tower was occupied and a yellow flag flew behind his or her chair.
I'm still trying to recover from a borderline bronchitis thing I've had going on now for two straight weeks. Today was the first day in two weeks I felt any energy upon wakening, so I was eager to have a walk. I'm so tired lately and feeling so old. It was good to hit my 10,000 steps before 11:00 a.m. though it wore me out. I hope that by this time next week I feel better.
As usual I'm posting a photo of my beach from today's walk. "Crowds" (I say crowds because here, right now, crowds means a few dozen) of people were forming at Ocean Park and Nance Park, but in between, my walk was all but deserted.
