A lot of people like the white sand beach on west coast Florida. The white sand does look good. However, when it is sunny the glaring of sand hurts my eyes a lot. I also think the soft feeling of gray sand at Palm Beach is better than the white sand of Sarastoa, which tends to pack hard.

Of course, the sand of Miami Beach is just TERRIBLE. How can they call that a beach?

What is your oppinion?

The best aspect of a white sand beach for me is that the portion of it in the ocean makes the water look prettier, that beautiful turquoise you see in the Caribbean. The darker the sand, the less blue the water. The sand on our Treasure Coast beaches are somewhere between white and tan, but we do get the nice blue water if the waves are calm enough. I agree with your point about white sand being too "glaring" out of the water !

I love the look of sugar white beaches- they are stunning. The beaches here on the TC are ok, but more like crushed shells vs actual sand sometimes.

As long as the water is clean and the people are sparse, I don't care what the beach looks like!!

I love the white sand of the west coast beaches, but I'm not equally as fond of the waves. On the east coast I love the waves, but not so much the sand. However, Ft. Pierce Inlet State Park and St. Lucie Inlet State Park have some amazing beaches. I highly recommend both which I think could put the color of the sand question to rest for any Treasure Coaster.

Building in Town Park in Tradition. Hoping to break ground very, very soon and be in by August/September. We had a very hard time finding a rental - seems no one is willing to give a six month lease plus we wanted to rent in a gated community. Very fortunate that we have family in Vero and will be staying with them. Using Allied for our move so I'm thinking things will go well. More worried (not that I would tell my wife) about my "weekend therapy". It's a 1969 Corvette. Shipping it down with "Horseless Carriage" - a company that specializes in moving classic cars.

Javaman, having been through a long-distance move last June, I can tell you that the movers will manage to break or damage something. We only had a few "dings" to furniture, nothing major, but we packed our glass shelving and actually rented a U-Haul to bring the really fragile stuff down ourselves. We had the boxes marked for which room they went in, but about midway through the move into the house, the movers were just putting them down anywhere. If possible have somebody stationed by the entrance to direct them !

Back to the beach topic: We have lived here ten months now, and I go to the beach twice a week. I am still excited about living this close to the ocean, and I hope that it never gets "old" to me ! Heck, I am still excited about living in a subtropical climate and seeing palm trees everywhere !
