BTML On the Road - Charming!


Alys Beach on 30A on the Florida Gulf Coast is reminiscent of the beautiful homes in Greece but this lovely street reminded me, of course, of rue de Crémeux in Paris. The lovely painted doors and shutters were worth making my friend John stop the car for a quick photo op!
