Gulf of Mexico from Longboat Key

All the walking around I did at the park got me hungry so I started to head back toward St. Armands Key to get something to eat. On the way back I saw this beach. I wanted to get a good look at the Gulf of Mexico. The only time I've really seen the Gulf was from Louisiana's shore at Grand Isle. The water there is brown an smelly and there are oil platforms within view from shore. The Florida Gulf coast is not like that at all! The water is blue, the sand is white, and the wind keeps the air smelling fresh. I walked out to the water and it was pretty warm, about 70 degrees.
