Tuesday, December 22nd saw a group from the Nature Center on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean at Playalinda Beach at the Canaveral National Seashore. The Winter Solstice dawned with a gorgeous sunrise!!! A pounding surf at high tide, many shorebirds, and a flyby of several flocks of pelicans highlighted the festivities. The days will slowly increase with more daylight as the sun progresses back toward the northern hemisphere.

Remember Cape Canaveral Seashore is a scenic half hour drive from TGO, entry fees apply. Head east over the Max Brewer Causeway and follow the signs to the seashore. There are 24 miles of unspoiled beaches and it’s a short walk up stairs or a ramp over the dunes to the beach. When you are out at the seashore be sure to look for the shipwrecked sailboat washed up on the beach by Parking Lot #6!!!
