Gulf Coast Beauty

It’s wonderful to live close enough to the Gulf coast to drive there for the afternoon.


Here are some of the beautiful sights here in Florida.


Hubby has a new ‘toy’. He got a Canon S 100 camera for his ‘early’ birthday gift and it’s small enough to slip into his pocket and carry everywhere. The best feature so far is the low light feature. It takes the best shots inside without a flash. But for today….it’s too beautiful to stay inside!


Just HAD to take a couple to Picmonkey!

Ah, warm weather. Looks so good. I am afraid that is a few months down the road. The high Chirstmaas is suppose to be 8 above. Brrrrr.

We are having sunshine today. I am so glad, yesterday's cold and ice made me blue. I am going to go outside today to have the sun on my face. I like those little cameras. Great photos. Merry Christmas to you and your family. xoxo,Susie

Looks like a great day on the beach. Not so on our North Pacific coast beaches. LOL
Have a nice weekend and a Happy Christmas.

HI Diane! I agree it's great living so close to the gulf. We live about two block away. When it's windy outside we can hear the waves. Lovely shots with your hubby's new toy! Love it. Have a wonderful blessed Christmas to you and your family.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Taking a walk down the beach is always so relaxing! Nice to take the camera, too. Merry Christmas! :)

Very beautiful coast! :) Hard to imagine that it can be warm and green somewhere while it's a cold white fairytale landscape here. I already miss summer!

I love living in Florida! We live on the Atlantic side, but I have to say that I love the Gulf side. St. Pete Beach is a favorite!
