A Visit to Jax. Beaches… Echoes of My Neighborhood #photos

This morning I enjoyed a beach walk with my son. It is much too crowded on the weekends, so now is the time! The dunes are beautiful at our beach. There are signs telling people to ” stay off.” For good reason, I am sure.

Walking the beach is something we both like to do. He is quiet comp, but as we walk, I feel any stress melting away. I imagine that’s why he likes it so much. We broke my heat survival rule: must hit the beach before 9 a.m., but optimise of iced coffee got me through!

After walking, we stopped by Breezy Coffee Shop Cafe on 8th St. so I could get my iced coffee.  It is a small, cozy cafe in a quaint two story house, located next to a surf/ clothing shop with this beautiful mural on one side. I love the Arts in Jacksonville!

Speaking of the Arts in Jacksonville, I got my copy of Folio Weekly at the coffee shop which features an article on a woman who has opened several businesses that support the Arts in Jacksonville. I included this photo because it says a lot about my town. The Folio reflects our town quite well every week, in fact!

I apologize for not taking a photo of my coffee. My phone was acting up in the coffee shop. The iced coffee was great, though, and an excellent reward after the walk. At least there is a breeze on the beach when you walk! It was nice to get out and away from the computer. I’ll have to do this next week, as well.

  1. Growing up on east coast, you remind me that anytime on the beach is nice ! We were Amelia Island in Feb. and really enjoyed the time and old Florida feeling in parts of it. Thank you!

  2. Walks on the beach early before people show up is great – I do it all year on Cape Cod (when I go down). It’s funny, I was an Air Traffic Controller in the distant past and yet I missed what you meant by “JAX” until you said “Jacksonville”. Suddenly I felt a little stupid 😉 At one time I knew every major US airport and hundreds of small ones…
