April 20, 2014. Approximate time of UFO event 2:45-3:15pm.
Prior to the UFO sighting I was relaxing on the beach, alone, with eyes closed and radio volume turned low. I heard a faint whirring or humming sound coming from above, which is what made me open my eyes. I looked up and saw a strange object hovering directly above me. There were other people on the beach too, not that far away from me, but no one else seemed to be looking up at it. From my vantage point, the general shape of the object was like a four-leaf clover or four-pointed star, with cone-shaped appendages.
I then watched the object move back and forth along the shoreline, in a slow, scanning type motion. My first thought was that it was some sort of remote-controlled toy that somebody on the beach was playing with. But when I looked around, this was not the case. In fact, no one else on the beach seemed to be paying any attention at all. My second thought was that the object was some sort of drone, as it was too small in size to hold any occupants.
I grabbed my cell phone and began taking pictures just as the object started to move away. It moved in a westerly direction, away from the shoreline, toward the condo buildings. I was able to snap 5 or 6 photos as it hovered briefly near the buildings. It then immediately shot straight up into the sky at a high rate of speed, and I then lost sight of it.
