the real Florida

St. Joseph Peninsula State Park

… the real Florida

A sweeping landscape of towering dunes and untamed wilderness encompassing 2516 acres.

On the gulf of Mexico, 9.5 miles of snow-white sand beaches lapped by clear, aqua-blue waters.

According to the brochure quoted above, the destination of the real Florida sounded very refreshing, especially after our last two Florida vacations in the un-real Orlando area (theme parks, etc.).

Our campsite was facing the sand dunes, and just over the dunes was the ocean. A short walk brought us to the spectacular beach.

The ultimate goal of sand between the toes was met, the beach chairs facing the ocean were comfy, the sunscreen worked well, the weather cooperated, total relaxation was achieved.

It would have been perfect if you had brought us along!

What a perfect place to camp out and watch the sun on the water. I love it. More pictures, please.

I miss the ocean. I was supposed to go this year, but something came up and it doesn't look like we are hoo. Please show us more of your beautiful ocean pictures so I can imagine that I was there.
