Northwest Florida Beaches

The most beautiful beaches in the world are located in Northwest Florida. I don’t remember the name of the beach for this photo, but it’s located between Seaside FL and Panama City Beach Fl.  I have never seen any sand on any other beach more white than the sand in this part of the world. And as you can see, the color of the water can be quite beautiful and colorful as well.

1 PicADay Project: Day 306

Seaside Cottage

Many scenes of the 1998 film The Truman Show were shot in Seaside FL. The movie’s director Peter Weir was planning on building a movie set town for the movie when his wife, Wendy, happened to see Seaside featured in an architect’s magazine and thought it would be perfect for the film. The former superintendent of Okaloosa Schools, and now a member of the Florida Senate, state Senator Don Gaetz, was one of the original property owners of Seaside, and his personal cottage was utilized as the Burbanks’ house in the film.

This house is actually on the street from the Truman Show scene on which Truman (Jim Carey) is driving down fast to get away after finding out his life is a TV show.

Click here to see a photo of the quaint little Seaside Post Office in the center of the town.  I took it last November when I was in Seaside.

1 PicADay Photo #52 (pensacola sea gull)wmI took my children to Pensacola Beach awhile back and took some pictures.  Here’s one of a seagull.  I know the exposure is probably not just right because of all the bright sand, but I do like the bird.

As you can see, Pensacola has some of the whitest sand ever.  It is located on the barrier island called Santa Rosa.   Fort Pickens is located on Santa Rosa Island and was completed in 1834 and was used until WWII.   One of Fort Pickens most famous residents was Apache prisoner, Geronimo.

My husband used to live in  Gulf Breeze, Fl which is right across the bridge from Pensacola Beach.  I lived in Pensacola for about seven years.  If you ever want to get away to a beautiful beach, Northwest Florida is where  you should go.  You will never see more beautiful sand as well as beautiful water.
