Our 2013 contest winners are posted below:

Family-AdrienneGathy Overall Winner
This is 5-year-old Everett, from Ohio, about to experience the beach for the first time. I took this picture using my phone.
Adrienne Gathy


Beach-JimLaird Beach Winner
I really wish we lived closer so we could see this more often. I love this photo because you can truly see the emerald color of the Gulf matches the green in the chairs. It’s beautiful.
Jim Laird, Wright City, MO


Family-CathyKrupa Family/Friends Winner
Our Destin Vacation in 2013, cousins from Ohio and Tennessee were reunited with the beautiful beach and the great city of Destin. This was taken in front of the condo were we stayed, Hidden Dunes, in August 2013.
Cathy Krupa Butler, OH


Harbor-DianeMcAndrew Harbor/Bay Winner
This particular photo was taken this past May on one of our big family visits. On this particular evening, I watched the sunset from our condo balcony instead of the beach like I usually do. And I'm so glad that I did because otherwise I would have missed the amazing color show the harbor area provided. There is no place better to see a spectacular sunset than in Destin!
Diane McAndrew, Houston, TX
