Since we moved to the middle of the country from the East coast, I couldn't agree with you more! There is nothing like walking on a great sandy beach...especially since we woke up to 12 more inches of snow! UGH!
These are gorgeous photos! I can hear the ocean here in Montana!
My aunt lives in Pensacola and just posted a bunch of pictures of her beaches on Facebook (Pensacola, Destin, etc...) because she's moving back to Utah and will miss them. I LOVE Florida beaches!
