hi everyone,

went to wells beach yesterday evening to cool off, but can't walk on that beach anymore due to leg and back pain, so went across the way to the drake's island side, sat on the jetty and watched the boats go by. some pics:

best wishes to you all,

    I have two favorite beaches, but sadly none with any current photos.
    Growing up on Long Island, NY.. I spent so many days at Jones Beach. On the South side of Long Island right up against the Atlantic. From West End 2 east out toward the Hamptons, there are miles of beaches.
    White granular sand and clean rough surf.

    My second favorite beach (which hopefully we will be going in November) is Siesta Key in Sarasota, Florida

    We live on a lake, largest man made in the Northeast (Candlewood - they flooded 3 towns back in 1930 to create the lake for Hydroelectric power)
    I love it, we boat in it as much as possible....
    But its fresh water, Not good ole Sea Salt Water
  • My husband wants a boat sooooooooo bad. Seeing the boats last night made him crazy, lol! I'll have to remember about Siesta Key. Hope to go to FL this winter for a snow break.

    TC and HAGD!

    has been in the top 10 beaches of the world, for the past three years that the Travel Channel has been keeping watch on beautiful beaches.
  • I love the pictures. I have never heard of those beaches. I love the beach too. We go to Fort Walton in Florida. We were supposed to go September 4th. But I am in such pain that I don't think I can make the trip.
    I can't fly because of panic attacks. Sure would hate to get in the air and that happen.
  • I live far inland but my heart belongs to the beach. The prettiest one I've been to was in the Cayman Islands where the water was turquoise but clear and the sand was white.

  • meydey I second that! The Cayman Islands are by far my favorite! Water so clear it looked 3 feet deep but was more like 50.
  • Havent been down lately but i four wheeled my naughtydodge down around 50-60 miles or so, the water got clear and blue-r. need to get another wagon to trek with...SOOOON!

  • Is one covered by trash and waste.

    My favorite? Who could really choose just one?

    Grand Caymens are indeed grand.

    There is a black sand beach on the big island near its southern tip. Has some lava cliffs around it, a water spout and even has black crabs running around!

    isle de'saints (SP?) in the carribean has some gorgeous beaches to.

    I sit here and wonder, did I ever for a minute in my youth think I would have seen these places and more?

    Florida, Alaska, California, Hawaii, North Carolina (last week), Washington State, Mexico and more.

    A picture may be worth a thousand words, the warm sand between your toes is worth much more.
  • Those beaches sound wonderful! I do love the Caribbean. I've been to St. Croix and St. Martin. Someday I'd love to check out St. John.

    Best to you,

  • Marianne, St.John is just beautiful but be sure you have reservations for your room before you get there. #:S it is a small island and not alot of bedding space.. other than that, the water is clear, the sand is white and it is a gorgeous place.. :D plenty of little hide-a-ways for an intimate get-together.. lovely palm trees around the water and touches of color lent by flowers everywhere. i hope you make it one day! i love the Caribbean myself as well. :X so many fantastic places to see and be in!! =D> Jenny :)
