Jax Beach, August 2016.
When my parents first moved to Jacksonville, (late 1980's, I believe), Jacksonville Beach was sorta overrun with beach bums and derelicts.
What a difference thirty years have made!
These next three pics were an attempt to capture the image of a bird perched on a post. None of them turned out very well.
In Jacksonville proper is a scenic outdoor mall called St Johns Town Center, which contains a really cool koi pond.
So there you have it ...... a lovely beach, and a few miles away, a lovely freshwater koi pond!
