OK, Here we go. This is a first for me, but being a true 'southern girl it is not so surprising that it took me a while! Here in gorgeous Perdido Key, Florida it is about 75 degrees, sunny and breezy as we enter the last days of October.

Perdido Key is a barrier island that lies just south of Alabama, west of Pensacola Beach, Florida and east of Gulf Shores, Alabama. The Spanish "perdido", meaning "lost" refers to the tucked away bays and inlets that allowed pirates, and war ships to successfully hide away in years gone by. Those of us fortunate enough to call this fair isle home recognize the "treasure" that is Perdido Key. Frankly, many of us are very happy for it to be "lost"!

Our sugar white beaches, emerald green Gulf of Mexico waters, abundant fishing, boating, golf and other recreational activities have lurred many a happy soul in our direction.

When the winter winds howl up north, pack up and head our way! You will be glad you did. Perdido Key is a fine example of good old southern hospitality surrounded by the most beautiful beaches on earth. A combination that is just very hard to beat! Come on down!
