And what a long, beautiful, summer day it was in Pensacola Beach!
Today marks the longest day of the year! Sunrise in Pensacola was at approximately 5:44 am with sunset around 7:55 pm for a total of 14 hours nd 11 minutes of daylight. And it was a gorgeous day with a high of 88 degrees and low of 73 degrees.
The beaches were packed today with locals and tourists alike welcoming Summer 2012. We hit the beaches of Perdido Key and Pensacola Beach to bring you some pictures of the sun making its appearance on the longest day of the year.
Sunrise and Sunset in Perdido Key
These photos were taken at Johnsons Beach, right off Perdido Key Drive. Johnsons Beach is a state park and there is an admission fee to enter but there are several places in Perdido Key with public beach access and just as gorgeous views.

I try to make it a habit to watch the sunset as often as possible. When you live so close to the water, it's almost a shame not to go watch the sunrise and set! Listening to the waves crashing into the shore; the sun sinking below the horizon while birds catch their last meal. Palm trees, sea oats, sand between your toes. There's nothing else like it!
