It was a great day to take a walk on the beach. Saturday morning at Tigertail Beach on Marco Island was beautiful, with a mixture of sun and clouds, and a full moon sinking into the Gulf of Mexico.
If you could come back with a glow of satisfaction from leaving the environment a little more pristine than you found it, that made the walk even better. A few more people than usual for a July day strolled the beach on Saturday, participating in the Friends of Tigertail’s quarterly beach cleanup day.
