Ahhh, the beach. Holmes Beach to be exact. Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island. Our vacation spot. We were "100 large steps to the beach" according to the rental publicity. And it was true!
Our single story bungalow condo was situated behind a two story condo bldg that fronts the beach. We could walk out the front door, turn right & walk 100 "large" steps to the sand.
When we first arrived, we walked down to and sat on the sugar sand beach staring at the turquoise sea with our mouths half open. Anyone watching us would have thought we'd never seen a beach before!
My husband is slowly working on the over one thousand photos he took. This is a photo of my sons hauling our stuff to the beach. It's high noon. I am impatiently waiting for the rest of the selected photos as I want to send to friends and post a few more to my blogs. The colors are so amazing. I can't wait to share. Ready for vacation anyone?
