A plus of living 50 miles from the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean is that day trips are easy to plan and there are always new beaches to explore. This trip was to the Gulf of Mexico, Honeymoon Island. Unlike the ocean the sea is calm and offers more layers of color. This being said it is obvious a body has to expect to get WET when at the beach.

  1. Nice presentation, and good salt in the wound for a place that has yet to see 65 degrees in 2011! Honeymoon Island, eh? What goes on there?

    1. Thanks for all the compliments on the Wet look! Seriously I’m not trying to add salt to anyone’s life this is just the subject matter I have to work with, it’s either beaches or tourist traps. Funny how this mountain girl chooses beaches.

  2. Love the layout of the two photos that tell a story of a day at the beach.
    Honeymoon Island looks like a little slice of heaven to this midwesterner.

    1. Thank you for the positive feedback on the layout, I wasn’t sure if it was too over the top. Soon you will be enjoying outdoors and beach time (lakes and ponds) and I will be retreating to home and a/c.

    1. Glad you liked the composition:) Unlike Sarasota and Clearwater beaches the sand on this beach is anything but sugary it is primarily course sand and sharp ground up seashells.

  3. Pearl….. the red shoes…. brings back a fond memory, and in my minds eye, I saw the shadow of the photographer on the shorts not a stain. … love the set up. I must visit Honeymoon beach in the spring… I can smell the water from here in Michigan… great….

  5. I too see a shadow like you would get of you taking the picture. Love the patriotic colors… red, white and blue! The textures and compositions are just beautiful.
