Postcards from Santa Rosa Beach

Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

We are back from our annual beach vacation. This year we were at Santa Rosa Beach again (between Destin and Panama City Beach, Florida). The weather was beautiful, sunny days in the 70s and mild mornings and evenings. Only one day of rain - the last day we were there - but I enjoyed it because we were in a house with a tin roof and I was curled up with a good book. Our house also had walls of windows overlooking the beach. It was very cozy.

The photo above was just one of many beautiful sunsets we enjoyed. Here are some more photos taken from our deck -

Of course, there was great food too. One of my favorite meals was a seafood dinner at Pineapple Willy's in Panama City Beach. This was our view from our table. And below, a view in the opposite direction.

  4. What a fantastic spot for a relaxing vacation! I was feeling quite relaxed just looking at your gorgeous photographs on Saturday morning even without the soft sand and the warm temperatures.

  5. Phillip,
    Florida is a really big state, but do you ever get down there in Jan thru Mar? We spend those months in central Florida and would love to visit if you are anywhere nearby - like I said, I know it is a huge state, but...
    Best to you,
    Shenandoah

  14. Gorgeous shots, and just my kind of vacation. They look so much like our recent trip to Sanibel Island, but that shouldn't be surprising!
