Corner View, The Beach, GA

We don't have any beaches here in T-ville so we have to drive a couple of hours in any direction to get to one. There are a few that are well worth the drive, and of course for a weekend getaway we do have plenty of choices.
This is Mexico Beach, Fl. The sand is white and squeaks when you walk on it
Also there's lots of great shells to be found...




This was pre Hurrican Ivan at Orange Beach, Al. The beach and surrounding
areas have now been restored but the damage was unbelievable.

A storm coming in at the beach on St. George Island... pretty much a given
in Florida really.

Thanks for stopping by... now check out some other Corner Views..... and thanks to Jane at Spain Daily for her brilliant pictures!!!

I'm glad you showed some pretty Florida beaches, since I chose to show a not very pretty one.

cool shots! i'll take any beach in florida, but the alabama coast totally surprised me the first time i saw it. it has some of the prettiest sand i've EVER seen - powdery and white - just beautiful!

Dana said...

Oh. . the shells. I hope to find at least one beach this summer where we can collect shells.

jane said...

great shots ali. the last one scares me a little... thanks for sharing these. p.s. thanks for your suggestion, but i think we should leave corner view as is. we all have met some wonderful new friends this way. i like how personal it is, and am afraid we would lose some of that if we posted on another site. let´s see how it goes this way- if it gets too hectic we can always change it later. besos-jane

Thank you all for stopping by and for your comments...
I was amazed the first time I heard the sand squeak.. I wasn't sure how that was going to be but it's really neat. Shell collecting is big business in my house, and there are all sorts of things come with it.. crabs legs, sand dollars, rocks..
Jane. yes I agree it is nice and cosy. I will endeavour to add everyone to my side bar in the hope of making it easier to view all these glorious posts... i can't get enough of it!!!
Thanks for the inspiration!!! besos. Ali.

So many different views of beaches around the world... We never get hurricanes here.

Jeannette said...

Oh Ali.....that shell! As in your house we are avid shell collectors (and other beachfinds). Would love to find a big one like that...it would probably make my day. ;)
Have a great day, Jeannette

Thay look like buildings built to be destroyed - houses of cards - which I guess is all buildings on a beach should ever be.

Francesca said...

It's quite interesting to me how there can be swimming pools so close to the beach. Love that big shell!

caitlin said...

I have never heard of sand squeaking.. now I am curious! Very cool pictures!

McGillicutty said...

Francesca... that's for people like hubby who won't swim in anything unless it's chlorinated!! Crazy American's everything is so convenient!!!

ian...once again it's a throw away convenient society, if the hurricanes blow it away no biggie they'll just build it again.

Caitlin.. you're welcome to come and test it out, it's really an awesome sensation!!

Cate said...

the storms ARE beautiful when they're not completely destroying everything. very cool pictures. love your daughter with her shell. so cute!

marinik said...
