zeekat: Sea features paramount in the panhandle's character......and advisably so...........coz i wont be exaggerating if i say that it takes not more than half an hour to be close to sea from any part of Florida.....:)

Nice slideshow :) Looks warm there. ;D I like how it looks so deserted in most of the shots - until you get to the beach. Guess that's where everyone is. ;) That sunset shot is gorgeous!

Welcome to Florida !!!!

Moi said...

suzana: it was cold (by Florida's standards) last week...but it's beginning to get warmer now.....no matter what season it is or how cold it is, Mr Sun never refuses to visit us........and that's why the "Sunshine state" i guess! :).....most of these shots have been taken on Sunday afternoons when we decide to shake off our slumber while the rest of the population i believe is catching upon their afternoon siesta.....that should explain why it looks so deserted in most of the shots ......:)
i love the sunset shot too :)

Moi said...

Franco: oh u are most welcome here too..its not just a warm country by temperatures...we r warm hosts too :)
