National Seashore

The National Seashore. 55 miles of beach with no crowds, no one in sight. We went 30 miles in (4x4 access only) and on the first day not a soul to be seen. Fishermen come by on occassion usually, but not this day. Weather was perfect, feeling like Hawaii. The gentle sound of the sea, and the warm air coming off the ocean. Water temperature here is about 80 degrees in May/June, then warmer in August/July. So few know about this treasure. When you really want to have miles of beach to yourself, it's the only place I have ever been to where you can find it in the U.S., including Hawaii. This image is the second morning as the sun rose on the Gulf of Mexico.
