Pensacola Beach is...

The waves and the water have been so beautiful in the past few weeks. Standing at this spot yesterday, I realized that even after being a full-time resident for about two years I am still in awe of living in such a special place.

No matter where you go in life, you can generally find fault in the towns or the people -- if you choose to look at life negatively. But rarely do you find a place like Pensacola Beach where you can walk or drive a mile or so and see this incredible view, the sugar white sand, sapphire and emerald water, and solitude to meditate, read, or just relax.

Pensacola Beach is the home of people with big hearts and kind souls. It's my kind of town. It's my paradise.
