The first 5 photos are of a late afternoon trip to Melbourne Beach, FL. We loved it! The sand is perfect, plenty of shells. The waves were not too crazy. Jason taught our eldest (5 yrs old) to boogie board! The storm pictured did roll in around 6:30, so we left for some Friday night pizza.
All but the sunset pictures are from Jacksonville Beach. I loved this beach! It was perfect for kids and surfers. The tide didn't affect our experience either! There was so much room. The beach seemed to be at the most slight incline even when in the water. We were close to the Jacksonville Beach Pier. The lifeguards were informative when the surf was rough. We paid $1 each for adults (small children were Free) to walk up and down the pier. We even saw a man catch a shark. He held it for us to touch. We explored the beach at night and it was just as peaceful. Most of one side of my family hails from Jacksonville Beach. I couldn't help, but feel a connection there. Jacksonville Beach = Highly Recommended!
We loved visiting our family that lives there too! More on that soon!
