The Beach this Week – Amazing Picturesque Water

This time of year is famous for bringing perfect weather, clear skies and shimmering, emerald green waters.  For the Panama City Beach connoisseur the period between the second week in April and the last week in May and the month of October is the best time to come to the beach on the Gulf Coast.  The air temperatures during the day have been consistently in the mid-80’s and the gulf waters are floating around 75 degrees.  We’ve had a variety of yellow to red flags marking calm vs choppy waters, but overall, it’s been just amazing.

This video was shot last Sunday.  I had to run over to one of our vacation rental condos and couldn’t miss a chance to twinkle my toes in the sand to shoot this.  I shot it with my iPhone 4s.  As you can see, there were quite a lot of people out enjoying the Easter holiday weekend.
