If you’re in Jacksonville to see the St. John’s Light (our last blog before Mother’s Day), be sure to go to the beach while you’re so close to them. Picking one is difficult, so why not try to see how many you can see? Or at least count how many you come across from Jacksonville to St. Augustine. There is Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach, Jacksonville Beach (listed there as “Jax Beaches, because there are so many small beaches associated with each little subdivision along A1A), Ponte Verda Beach, and more than one set of North Beach, Middle Beach, and South Beach, Sawgrass, and Vilano Beach. I am sure we missed some on our trek and we didn’t snap pictures at each one individually. It was just fun to see how many we came across in such a short span. I joked when we crossed through each little South Beach that we sure made it all the way to Miami fast (ha ha). The beaches south of this area are spaced a little farther apart in their names, so watch closely when you’re in the Jacksonville area so you can catch all of their names. Each one has it’s own variety of sand too. It’s amazing how just a few short miles can create different colors and textures of sand. Have fun in the sun and enjoy up beaches!
And don’t forget to visit some fun little shops too (like Salt Life (this one is small and only carries clothes and small accessories, not big gear), and Champion Cycles….that bicycle shop had all we needed for the best price).
