Dreaming of white sand instead of snow…

A few years ago, I travelled to the gulf side of Florida with some friends. We went to Siesta Key, where the sand was soft and white like flour. Around sunset, I took a few pictures. Apart from the bikini-clad beachgoers (and the wonderful heat, of course!), the setting looked like it could just have easily been taken somewhere in the arctic.

If I were brave enough to face the sub-zero temperatures, wind-chill and icy roads, I’d probably be able to take a similar one of Lake Erie right now. Only I’d much rather be on a warm, sunny beach… *sigh*
