Florida beaches are delightful in winter.  Occasionally a sweater is needed, but otherwise it is great weather for being outside and walking on the sand.  These pictures were taken at Sebastian Inlet State Park on Florida’s central Atlantic coast (east of Orlando).

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.

      The birds are so beautiful. We never get tired of looking at them. And the shell was a treat! You never know whether it is a day when goodies wash in or not.

    It is one of our favorite places! And surprisingly it looks a little different every time we visit. Depending on tides, weather and time of year, the color of the water changes, and so does the composition of the sand. Never boring!

  5. Wow Pam – a 9 Armed Sea Star. What a find. I’ve wandered Florida’s Atlantic coast for years and never seen one. It’s beautiful, as are all your other shots (I do like the “unimpressed female”) 🙂 ~Terri

      Amazingly that day it was a very low tide and I saw about a dozen of those sea stars. They are much bigger than you think. I’m glad you liked the “unimpressed female” royal tern – it makes me laugh every time I see it!
