our Florida vacation - Rosemary Beach


I've been away for a couple of weeks. We headed down to Rosemary Beach, Florida and then we got home just in time to start school. Back into the routine.

Rosemary Beach is a community located on the Florida panhandle and it's our favorite place to stay. There are footpaths everywhere, so walking is encouraged. The architecture is the West Indies meets New Orleans. Landscaping, with the exception of the open park-like greens, tends to be wild and in keeping with what the Spanish first found when they came to Florida. Rosemary Beach is a true gem and is one of the few architecturally unique communities on the Florida panhandle.

We've stayed at Rosemary at least half a dozen times and I'm still awed. I probably took over 100 photos. Here are a few for you to enjoy.


I had to increase the contrast on the photo above to try to get that Moorish arch to show up. The stucco is so white that it blended into the sky.

My two boys playing on the Western Green before dinner one night. There is direct access to the beach at the end of this football field sized green.



This is the Rosemary Beach town hall. Many weddings are held here.
