    I live on the central east coast of Florida and have totally fallen in love with the north/west part of this state on the gulf of Mexico. Absolutely beautiful beaches!

    The water is beyond beautiful. I hope the storms don't hurt too much of coastline.
    Thanks for your comments : )

    Those are beautiful, aren't you glad you live close?
    We have some great beaches here in Michigan that are walking distance to our home but in the winter it's soooo cold you have to wear a lot of protective clothing ...which is about 5 months a year.

    Gorgeous shots Trish, I can never get tired of coastal shots, just such a relaxing place
     
  12. Ypu shouldn't have let thecat out of the bag. I live in the Keys but als have a place in St Joe Beach. Come retirement, that's where I'll be!
     
  13. Wow. Beautiful pictures, and beaches. I've been all over Florida however never the panhandle.
     
  14. What great timing, I was just researching a trip there for Christmas. These photos helped me decide - I'm southbound this December! I was considering lodgings in Grayton Beach, but will try to find Rosemary Beach on the map. Does the water stay that turquoise throughout the winter?

    Beautiful shots of a beautiful beach! Love it here too, on the east coast of Florida just 20min to the beach with beautiful turquoise water as well. Isn't Florida wonderful? (Except just too hot in summer!) :)

    I was in Destin last week and it was the nicest I have ever scene destin. Sadly I didn't break out the camera much. I tried to take it out one evening and got the d200 outside and fog up so bad it was not usable. At 1 hr of time still not clearing up i gave up went back and got more beer.
     
  17. Gorgeous place...You made this place a wonderland beach!
     
  18. Thanks for reviving my memories. I grew up in South Alabama, about 70 miles N. of Destin, in the 1950s. We went there often when it was very undeveloped. As a kid, I thought all beaches were like that!

    Don't you like how the sand squeaks under your bare feet when you walk?
     
  19. Be warned, it can be quite cold there in December. It's NOT South Florida.
     
  20. Oh, I know it's not tropical, but it will still be warmer than central North Carolina at that time of year. I was just wondering if the change of seasons causes the water to change color. It does here on the east coast.
