We spent the most wonderful morning at Coquina Beach. It was so perfect!
As usual, we arrived early to beat the traffic and crowds. The kids played in the sand making castles and some magical sand balls to attract mermaids. Of course, we all loved swimming around in the gulf’s light blue waters.
Even with the clouds rolling in, making the skies overcast above us, it was a great way to spend some time together as a family over Memorial Day weekend. Days like that, make me really thankful that we live in Florida and we have so many beautiful beaches to go to. Plus, there is some great weather to enjoy while grilling and eating outside.
