When I took this I was sitting on a towel right next to the gentle waters of the Gulf of Mexico on Sanibel Island. It's hard to convey the feeling; maybe it's the sand, the warm water, the breeze; maybe all these combined. Sometimes the waves are so small you might think you were on a lake. The bigger waves along the Atlantic coast of Florida are fun to swim in also, but nothing compares to the calm waters of Florida's west coast.
