Florida’s Nature Coast

We enjoyed spending the day on Florida’s Nature Coast!

"A string of counties studded with emerald-like gulf waters, deep springs and rivers, stretching along the same Florida coast." This was how world-famous naturalist John Muir described The Nature Coast in 1867 and enchantingly the coast still holds this charm today.

Wikipedia also has good information HERE !

How I wish I could spend an afternoon near the ocean on a rope swing! Looks like a beautiful day!

I see it but still don't know if it's a man, woman or mannequin.

I added links for info on the Nature coast of Florida! Thanks for asking! It was fun looking this up! And Freckled hen...I wasn't really up there with that guy! Did you think that was ME? heeheehee!

I haven't been to Florida in years. My best friend moved there about a year ago and I'm so hoping to get down there to visit her. Not to mention that I miss the ocean and the gulf.
I'm having a birthday giveaway if you want to hop over to my blog to check it out.
