There’s nothing quite like watching the sun set over an expanse of rolling blue waters. We are treated to that experience every night on the shores of Cape San Blas and Indian Pass. The colors of the sky are utterly breath-taking and the changes in the clouds are mesmerizing. Having our animals be a part of the moment only enhances the joy that can be found in the quiet serenity of the pet-friendly Forgotten Coast. Come discover what you’re missing.
