First Time on the Gulf Coast

This was my first time on the Gulf Coast. We went from Panama City Beach to Biloxi. The first thing that made me gasp was the color of the water. I had hoped the photos turned out better, but the color is there,,, you have to see it in person to really know how amazing it is.
Flowers everywhere.


Typical Florida beach rentals in every color imaginable.


A beautiful Hotel...there are tons of huge hotels.



The sun starting to come up at 6am on the beach in front of our hotel.



Lovely hanging moss on the trees.
A fun sign.


In Biloxi,,,we did a little gambling.

Biloxi still shows allot of damage from Katrina. Very sad, but, rebuilding is happening everywhere....like this building.


It was a fun trip, and the people were so nice everywhere. I got my beach fix! I am also glad to be home, and back to this machine, and my studio.
I want to say a special "HELLO" to Penny and Bob today.

Oooooo Marcie~~~I can smell the salty breeze now! Great pics, LOVE the gulf beaches! I grew up in Tampa and we always went to the beach every summer as a kid. Our beach was Indian Rocks which is just below Clearwater. BEFORE all of the high rise condos, too!
So happy you got your beach "fix!"

Love,
Lynn

Beautiful pictures. Makes me want to go soon. The Gulf is our favorite vacation spot.
How about that sugar white sand? Nothing like it anywhere else!

I miss the beach...My parents lived for about 5 years in Florida. Love the beaches-hated the humidity (especially with my frizzball hair) Love Tiina....
