Ahhhhh... the beach!

a great photo

Growing up in Florida, I've had the great pleasure of having quick and easy access to what some believe are the most beautiful beaches in the world. Florida's beaches are diverse, given that we have both Atlantic and Gulf coasts... sunrises and sunsets. My favorite destination is the beach. Any beach will do. St. Augustine and Crescent beaches are closest to us, but just south of Crescent is Matanzas Inlet, a more remote beach with great waves and breezes. In fact, kite surfers have found the little gem to be quite the attraction. My other favorite beaches in Florida are on the Gulf of Mexico on the beautiful tropical paradise islands of Sanibel and Captiva. There are also still pristine beaches to be found on remote parts of the islands where sand dollars and porpoises are aplenty.
