Saturday was glorious! My first real photo hike in weeks and I took full advantage of the weather and my freedom. I drove out to South Walton County and traipsed around in the woods at Flatwood Trail near Grayton Beach State Park, then ambled down the road to Deer Lake State Park and its practically deserted beach (read:pristine and secluded) for some sun and sand time. I just stood in the surf and let the cool waves wash over my legs. Ahh….
If I had brought my suit, I would’ve parked my arse in the sand and soaked in more of the summer sun. Maybe next weekend?

Gorgeous as always!
Really great pictures. They remind me, I need to get to the beach before they start getting crowded.
That magnolia reminds me of my childhood! I had a love/hate relationship with the trees. We had several huge ones. The blooms are gorgeous but they drop huge leaves and burrs and make raking a giant pain in the butt!!
I spy a TRUE magnolia, don’t I???
Yep, and that blossom was HUGE… the size of a serving platter.
Thank you for taking us on your walk!
