Living the Beach Life...one vacation at a time.

This is Day 5 of the First Annual 10 Days of Heat writing challenge hosted by P. J. at A ‘lil HooHaa. Today's prompt is Beach Life. Please join me in checking out the other hot stories.

I live four hours from the nearest beach, and yet only see the waves and smell that unmistakable scent of the sand and sea a couple times a year. You know that soul cleansing revitalization that comes from having the sand between your toes, listening to the waves and watching the pelicans soaring gracefully one moment and diving headfirst into the water the next.

This first video is a compilation of photos taken in St. Augustine, FL a few years ago while vacationing with friends. It was a picture-perfect trip.

This was filmed later that same year in Madeira Beach, FL. There are some spectacular sunsets over the Gulf and this one was amazing.

Yes, I do enjoy the beach life, and while we typically go to Florida, my home state also has some amazingly beautiful beaches.

This was taken at Oak Island, NC this past June.

  1. not quite a fan of beaches though I've never been, I was close once but I wasn't actually on the sand. those images are so gorgeous especially the sunset one.

    have a lovely day.

  2. Hi Linda - the ocean certainly calls - I think Cornwall and its western beaches are my calling ...but now I watch over the English Channel every day ... hearing the lure of the tides against the land ... delightful photos and idea of vacations ... cheers Hilary

  3. THIS is how I like the beach, Linda :-) Gorgeous videos and pictures!
    My favorite beach is La Jolla Cove. Not too much sandy beach, lots of rocks, cliffs and seals!
