Siesta Beach - Sky Watch - Friday

Every Tuesday in the summers they hold a fun run for families. They hold in the lat afternoon-early evening so people are off work and in is a little cooler....

...which is nice it give the family a chance to do things together, run, swim and meet with friends.
The only problem is... that is when the storms usually roll in...

The 1 mile run starts a 6:30 for the kids and not so serious runners. Then at 7:00 they hold a run that will take you to the "wall" which is at the end of Crescent Beach and back, about 5K. Some runs will add swimming or make take you over some soft sand for a cross country-like run. Some will add a little agility obstacles, like run over a picnic table and jump in a burlap sack. It was only rained out once this summer...

...but I have been able to capture many black skies and ominous clouds come rolling in. This one didn't have any lightning, and we were in the car driving off the key before the rain hit.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Oh my, that's a wicked looking storm, but you did get some awesome pictres. Great choice for SWF.
    Have a happy day.

  2. I love storm pictures. Awesome shots!

  3. That's an amazing wall of clouds moving in. It looks like a giant spaceship hovering over the beach! Excellent skies you're bringing us.

  4. Lyndsey, your photos a terrific.
    I haven't been to the west coast in a long time and they are some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
    What could be nicer than to run a race while enjoying a beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico.

  5. Terrific -- I really like the first and third shots. The clouds are so low and foreboding! Nothing like a Florida sky in the summer.
