Though Tallahassee is not on the water, an hour or two drive away are some of Florida best beaches. On one sunny cold weekend I finally made it to the coast line and visited Saint George Island.

 

Here’s what Wikitravel has to say about the island:

St. George is a small island connected by bridge to the mainland on Florida’s forgotten coast. St. George has a tiny town surrounded by a sprinkling of vacation homes and a state park in the dunes. St. George is a good escape from the rat race. If you like a Florida that is not "touristy" at all, you will love St. George.

 

Indeed.

 

We’ll start off from a nice beach overlooking the Ochlocknee Bay from the Tallahassee road leading down south and east…

Sun, secluded deserted beaches with white sand and clear water. What more can a person ask for?
