It is a gorgeous April day on the island.
While this particular photograph is not special in composition, I felt it was a perfect example of the natural beauty of the Gulf of Mexico and Pensacola Beach. A few days of winds from the north have flattened the waves, which allows you to see the spectacular color of our water and the sky.
Now, close your eyes, feel your toes wiggling deep down into the warm sand and the sun on your shoulders, imagine the soft sound of waves lapping at the shore, take a deep breath and let the salt air clear away all the stress. Ahhhhhh... You just took a trip to paradise. It's called Pensacola Beach.
