  4. I love the beautiful beaches in Treasure Island, Fl, just north of St.Pete beach. You can watch the dolphin swim every morning and it just reminds of the slower times in our lives.

  20. my favourite vacation spot is Tioman Island, Malaysia for its beautiful sandy beaches and crystal clear water and sunshine all year long. My next dream vacation is Redang Island in Sabah, Malaysia. Rated as the most beautiful snorkelling beach in the world, the water is crystal clear and the sand is so fine and soft, it will be out of this world experience.

  26. I love this card. Reminds of our trip to Topsail Beach, NC this summer. A very beautiful beach but the Ko Olina lagoon beaches on Oahu, HI still remains my favorite, at least until the kids get bigger and I can actually relax at the beach.

  32. Sunrise Beach, Australia. That is the best one I have been to, but I still love Carmel Beach, Carmel-by-the-Sea, California even though there are precious few days that you want to lay out there. But it is dog friendly so it's good on any day to romp around. :)

  43. love the beach card- our yearly day at the beach is quickly approaching and we cannot wait! perfect to see on another 90' day here in the east. my fave memory of the beach happened 2 years ago. took our 3 girls, the youngest had never seen the ocean. within 5 minutes of getting out of the car, we got to the water line and vertigo hit her big time! the ebb and flow of the tide caused her to lose her balance and she fell over - kerplat! right on her "tucas" soaking her pants. she stripped them right off (can get away with that at age 5) and enjoyed the rest of the day building sand castles! still laugh at that memory!

  44. Julie sent me to check out the blog! :) And I'm so glad I visited - what great eye candy you've got here! Wow!

    My favorite beach spot is a small state park in New Hampshire called Odiorne. It's a rocky beach, so it is definitely a place for the sure-footed to visit, and it is utterly gorgeous. On a clear day, you can see 3 lighthouses, and it is probably one of my favorite places on earth!
