When you think of a Florida vacation, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Is it life-size Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and friends, or dolphins playing among the gentle waves? Thousands of people standing in line conversing loudly while waiting for packed-out attractions, or warm, peaceful, sunny, snow white beaches? Standing in line in the broiling sun waiting for your turn on the next amusement park ride, or horseback riding through the waves as they break against the beach? Watching the stars perform on stage, or the stars twinkling in the skies above? If your idea of Florida is the popular tourist attractions, then it is time for you to come experience the natural side of Florida and all that Gulf County has to offer!

Some of my personal favorites – and one’s we are hoping to do –  include horseback riding on the beach, kayaking through the Dead Lakes, snorkeling, and visiting St. Joseph Peninsula State Park to catch a glimpse of some of local wildlife such deer, bobcats, squirrels, raccoons, Kingfishers, Great Horn Owl, and even otters! And of course I can’t forget relaxing on the sun-drenched beach, and a few romantic walks with my husband while the sun slowly sinks into the water! I just hope we have enough time to experience it all!

It's about a three-hour drive from my house to Gulf county, & we go at least twice a year. It's a beautiful, natural beach, & well worth the trip.
