We stayed in Gulf Cottage for the week after Thanksgiving. You can see the sea from the living room and we had our breakfast on the table in the garden and laid on the loungers or took chairs down on to the beautiful white sand beach.
There is a steady procession of pelicans flying past and the owners supply a book to enable you to identify the other Floridda beach birds which we loved. We only saw a pair of dolphins once but we know they were out there.
The accommodation was good with more local restaurants within walking distance than we could get to eat in including one with live music and a dance floor so all-in-all we had a a good break.
