I am not one to easily swim in water I can’t see through. I grew up swimming in fresh water springs and going to the beach. While the Atlantic coast of Florida isn’t known for its blue waters, mainly because it’s so shallow so far out, the Gulf coast is. Boasting beautiful, clear blue waters with white sand beaches, the panhandle stretch of the Gulf coast is the closest one can get to the Caribbean without actually going there. It must be seen to be believed, and it is by thousands during the “season” in Florida.
|I love running my toes through sand like this...|

This is a stunningly beautiful area to visit and I highly recommend it.
