Though it is a bit on the cool side (for Florida, anyway) the sun is shining brightly so took a little trip to Bradenton Beach and to Cortez, Florida So sorry I can't make a workable link to the Google map. It's just a short hop for me but always a thrill with sights to see each time I visit.. Walked on the beach a bit to clear my sinuses.... and then came home across the bridge. A large yacht was going through the drawbridge so had to wait.

|Here's the beauty that opened the bridge......|
I stopped at the charter boat place to see if any pelicans were hanging out and they were....!! Even a White Pelican (different and MUCH larger than our more familiar Brown Pelicans.
