A couple of photos from our trip to Melbourne Beach, Florida this month - the annual summer beach vacation.

Taken along Iron Horse Trail, I took advantage of the clear weather to get outdoors for a short while.  The rain has attracted what seems like a greater quantity of water fowl, such as this Mallard:

Taken from the Municipal Pier at the San Francisco Aquatic Park - there were a great many sailboats on the bay for an event.
