Walking My Florida Beach to Show it’s Fabulous!
As I opens in a new windowblogged a couple times last month, today was The Great VISIT FLORIDA Beach Walk on Florida’s 825 miles of beaches. I walked about 2.5 miles – because when you walk out, you have to walk back – on a gorgeous Saturday morning.
Yeah, it was a bit chillier than usual, a cold front moved in last night, but it’s all relative. Some of my northern friends woke up to snow!
The assortment of shells on the beach was incredible as the sun shined brightly. And because the air was a bit cool (in the 50s, warming to the 60s) the water felt very warm.
So I wasn’t the only one who woke up at o’dark-thirty on a Saturday to walk and photograph the beach. Thousands of other Florida residents throughout the state did so, too, each walking at least a mile. We had the same purpose in mind: photograph the beautiful beaches then upload them to show the world Florida’s beaches are oil-free and fabulous as ever.
