Sunrises and Sunsets on the Santa Rosa Sound

Published on February 8, 2019 by espaid

If you stay at one of our homes, The Seahorse Retreat or The Palm Breeze Beach House, you’re pretty much guaranteed a magnificent sunrise or sunset.

You’ll need to get up pretty early to view the sunrise, and sometimes that can be difficult on vacation, but it’s a peaceful and serene time of the day and very worth the effort. The water on the Santa Rosa Sound is often still and glass-like in the morning, and the reflection of the light and clouds on the water is a beautiful sight to behold. It’s hard to take a bad photo! I like to sit on the balcony on a comfortable chair or walk down to the dock to see it in all its splendor, and if you do, you might be treated to a visit from our resident blue heron who walks the beach to look for fish.

Enjoy this video we created from photos taken at various times of the year.

We have been hosting guests since 2003 when we bought our first place on Folly Beach, near Charleston, SC. It was something we kind of fell into. One day our friends mentioned a place they bought on Folly and invited us to stay. We headed there during a cold weekend in February and were wowed by the funky island and the amazing view of the river and marsh. The price was low and we decided to buy one as well and rent it out. We have added two more places in the Florida Panhandle and have not looked back.
