I MISS those white sand beaches!!!
Is this farther south than where you're from? The Panhandle has even bluer water and whiter sand!
I think I'm from pretty close to you... I'm from the Dunedin/Clearwater area (most beautiful beaches I've ever seen in my life--Grandma used to have a little condo on the water, so I have these early childhood memories of staying at her house and waking up to the sound of the waves, as well as hunting for shells and bobbing around the sandbar in water wings). And I still dream of visiting... family has been saying not to come just now because Grandma tries to take care of people whether she's up for it or not, and she has very much not been... if that changes, I'll let you know!
Leave me a comment! Don't be shy!
