Washington Oaks Gardens State Park: Peach Beach!

Peach Beach

Sanderlings on Peach Beach

Washington Oaks Gardens State Park is located south of St. Augustine, Florida. The eastern coastal side of the park is famous for its Peach Beach. The color of the sand comes from iron in the soil.  We are looking forward to a future visit at low tide so that we can photograph the beach’s picturesque coquina rock.

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.
