This was the view which changed several times in the 4 years while I lived there. The pile of dirt behind the power pole indicated where a small 2 story house would be built. And the grass and prickly pears would be stripped and a Hampton Inn hotel (4 stories) would be built facing A1A.
At the time we moved however, I took these shots.
My son moved to St. Augustine his senior year of high school. A difficult transition I'm sure, but he got his first car along with the situation.
The rocks formed a sea wall. Every few years someone would dredge the sand below the rocks and create a beach which could be used mainly at low tide. The hotel must have contributed to that. They also built a stairway going down to the water level.
We only evacuated for one hurricane, and that stairway was demolished during it. The apartment stayed dry however, but waves did deposit sand in our driveway.
I loved watching the pelicans fly by. I went swimming by myself a few times, but my upstairs neighbors were worried about me. I stopped doing it eventually. And most of my enjoyment was standing or sitting by the rocks looking out to sea. After all, the end of the road was nobody's property.
I'll share this post with Sepia Saturday this week...and maybe find a connection to their suggested meme....or not. THey let me list my blog posting along with many others down at the bottom of this page HERE>
Hope is the deep orientation of the human soul that can be held at the darkest times.
