Beach Running

I used to think that the best exercise location ever was on a sandy beach running, especially in Barbados and even more specifically along Carlisle Bay. It is pretty sweet there. See the funky panorama below.

But today I got to jog again at Siesta Key Beach in Florida like I did the last time I visited this blog with a post (bad, negligent blogger!). This time I took my 11-year-old daughter who seems to enjoy running.

The sand at Siesta Beach rivals the packed, fine sand anywhere and is perfect for running on. The maps shows this. I prefer to run barefoot. This beach may have convinced me that Florida beaches are first-rate.
