Photo Friday – Postcard Beach

View from cabanas at Crandon Park, Key Biscayne, Florida

View from cabanas at Crandon Park, Key Biscayne, Florida

Looks like it should be on a poster, huh?

Growing up, this was the view from the cabana we would rent most Sundays at the beach on Key Biscayne, across a bridge from Miami.  It was never this quiet, but this visit was in November, between storms, and while it was a cool 70 degrees.

Crandon was and still is the perfect kid beach.  Over 2 miles of lifeguarded beach protected by an off shore reef and with extensive sandbars that can leave a wading pool stretching a quarter mile out.  Cabanas for rent are a great place for shade and parking coolers of food an drink.  The park also includes a zoo and a train.  What more does a little kid (and their parent) want?

I hope to take Mirielle here this year if budget allows.  She will be disappointed with no waves, but I think she will love the sandbar.
