ABOUT THE LOCATION
On the return ferry from the Bahamas to Miami we have met a lovely Indian family who recommended us a great beach to visit as a day trip from Orlando. Instead of the famous Clearwater they mentioned a less known and different in character Caladesi Island. The island constitutes a state park and therefore it is quite wild as opposed to the Clearwater. Both are having amazing white sand and particularly green color of the water. I was quite surprised to discover that also Jean (jemaflor) has visited the same beach few days before. I don’t have great photos since I was focused on enjoying the beach life there but I wanted to share a view from this amazing place.

ABOUT THE TITLE
The title refers, of course, in the first place to the famous song performed originally by Bing Crosby. Indeed, in England the snow is a rarity and a couple of families I know travelled to Laponia in Finland this year where you can meet Father Christmas (Santa Claus) but also for a couple of days experience a real snow world. I think I will consider it next year, just to show my daughter how white Christmas may look like. However personally if I could, I would spend all Christmases on a white sand beach like the one in this photo. This idea was used in an ad for holidays in Malaysia: Children were making a snowman from sand on a white sand beach and the advert stated “Dreaming of a white Christmas?”. Yes, this is the sort of white Christmas which I would personally prefer.
