Travel - Florida, Eastern Lake beach

How to define the Eastern Lake beach? The coastal dune lake opens and closes through it. It is in Seagrove Beach, between Seaside and Deer Lake State Park on the Emerald Coast in northwest Florida, 32459.

The photo on this page was taken October 30, 2011. It is called Birds of a Feather, At Ease, Surfing Together and submitted to the Mattie M. Kelly Cultural & Environmental Institute at Northwest Florida State College (MKEI)'s Amateur Photo Contest, 2012. It has been given an Honorable Mention and will be featured in the 2013 Mattie Kelly Calendar. There will be an awards ceremony at the Choctawhatchee Estuary Family Festival on April 28th, 2012 at Rocky Bayou State Park and the photo will be on display. In November, thought of a subtitle: "Between a wave and a sandbar".
