Last August I made a very memorable trip to the Florida Panhandle beaches (Northwest Florida, as the State tourism promotion people refer to it). I've been remiss in putting up my photos and writing about several of the places I enjoyed. I've finally published some photos of Grayton Beach State Park, which is near the town of Seaside.
It was an EXTREMELY hot and humid day when I was there (over 100 degrees)so I did not explore the park as much as I'd have liked to. But I did hang out on the beach, and wow is this a great beach. I was particularly taken by the quality of the sand. It is really pure and white. The water is clear and emerald green, but on the day I visited, there was enough surf to make it just a bit rough. There was a sandbar visible and that was taking the brunt of the waves.
Nice tall white dunes, few people, fantastic beach. Check out my photos of beautiful Grayton Beach.
