Beach Yoga

Just spent a week in Pensacola Beach, visiting family, but also breathing in the sight and sounds and smells of the Gulf of Mexico and the snow-like sand, and letting go of my 'real' world and its daily stress. 

Obviously we aren't the only ones who come to the beach to de-stress. 

On one of my morning walks, I noticed this gull apparently giving yoga lessons beside the water.




  

He's pretty good, isn't he?

Hope you had a relaxing week!

  4. That's adorable. Do you figure it was a unisex yoga class? For buoys and gulls. ;)

    1. There weren't as many birds as I hoped there would be, but at least these seemed gifted!
