Imagine--you are thinking about a relaxing beach vacation, one that would transport your mind and body from your everyday life to a romantic fantasy where you wake up being welcomed by hearing the birds chirping outside your window. Then, while your coffee is brewing, you step outside your unit and are stunned by the sights and smells of hibiscus, bougainvillas and many other native flowers. Take your cup of coffee, stroll west for about one minute, and cannot believe the beach you see in front of you. It is perfectly clean, white and pristine. It is called Crescent Beach. This beach of perfect powdery sand that stays cool year round leads to the magnificent aquamarine Gulf of Mexico, where, if you're lucky, you might see a group of dolphins frolicking nearby having a fabulous time on Siesta Key.
