Couldn’t make it down to the beach this summer due to busy schedules?
Let me tell you a little secret, summer isn’t the only time to have a beach vacation. Planning a trip to Sandbridge in the Fall might sound a little strange, but here are 5 reasons it’s better than the summer stay you missed out on!
Imagine waking up & sipping on a cup of coffee on the deck of your oceanfront rental as the sun rises. You look north then south, only to see stretches and stretches of uncrowded shoreline. Now, look straight out to the ocean to see dolphins playing in the ocean..yes you deserve this. On your fall vacation, you could comb the beach for hours looking for the perfect shells, as the warm water wash up at your feet, completely unbothered. This is what Autumn in Sandbridge is all about.
Do you ever dread a trip to the beach? What about trying to carry the 4 chairs, the 3 boogie boards, the umbrella, 9 different bottles of sunscreen, & trying not to burn your feet on the scorching sand while you try to find an open spot on the beach…yeah, this doesn’t sound too ideal to us either. Do you know what does sound perfect? Spending the entire day at the beach in the sunny & 75 weather as the cool ocean breeze drifts through. It doesn’t stop there either! When the sun goes down its time to grab your blankets & gather by a fire pit with your favorite people. The only thing you have to worry about is who’s bringing the marshmallows!
Fall Sunrises & Sunsets
Autumn brings Sandbridge some of the best sunrises & sunsets. In the morning on the east, it looks as if an artist has used pastel watercolors to paint the sky, it is one of the most calming sights to see as you start your morning. As the day comes to an end part two of nature’s art show begins. This time instead of calming pastels, the sky becomes fiery with oranges, yellows, and pinks. Making it the perfect backdrop to enjoy a glass (or two) of wine on the west deck of your vacation home!
