Along Florida's Gulf Coast, Destin was our base of operations for Ryan and Meredith's wedding weekend.
Cherie and I snacked, drank, and shopped among the shops at Harborwalk, then strolled the pier admiring the boats and birds.
The beach at Seaside, Florida was similarly inviting, left, where a fence beckons visitors to kick off their shoes and walk in the sand.
Towards evening, the sound of the surf and the feel of the wind on skin imparts a timeless peace that draws man to sea...
...and in some cases, draws people to unite and celebrate, as one family did on the shore.
