Seaside, Florida

We're spending this week with family, extended family, and friends at a wonderful beach on the panhandle of Florida. We have been coming here for 15 years and have seen a lot of changes in the landscape as well as seeing our kids grow up on this beach. I want to share some of the photos with you. I'm particularly excited about the intense colors and scenes we continue to find at this remarkable place. The above photo was taken early yesterday. I watched these clouds form and reshape during the morning. We had some wind and only a bit of rain, but enjoyed the intense colors that come from a sky like this.
The giant mosaic frogs are fountains shooting water into this beautiful pool. Close up you can see they're made with glass tiles and flat marbles. Just how can I get one of these home
My husband Paul, is leaving the beach after a full day relaxing and riding the waves. Great shadows and lines!

There are many beautiful gardens. These bold flowers look like my newly painted bathroom. Yikes!!












I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and able to spend time together with their families .
