I can’t see it helping tourism for someone to see that photo and think it’s a Florida beach.

I’m glad you said this because I have never seen any part of PCB beach look like this…….. your sand is WHITE.
This looks like over on the Atlantic side to me!
The Scavenger Hunt is a nice idea IF it is really promoted BIG and they can get lots of groups interested in doing this. It is a wonderful thing to donate funds to charity. I just hope that Spring Breakers will be doing this instead of the things they usually do when they come to PCB for their break! lol lol

No coastline in Florida is that color.

I guess any muddy sand will do.

But we do have running shoes.

PCB Citizen and Cathy,

Thank you both for reading this article. I had no idea that the image of wet sand with footprints was going to cause an issue, since the article is about giving Spring Breakers the opportunity to raise money for a charity- which I would have loved the opportunity to do when I came here for Spring Break in college.

I promise in the future to make sure that all pictures of sand I use are very white in the future!

I think the greater good is performed by students who choose an alternative spring break like Habitat for Humanity’s Collegiate Challenge , with students working to build homes for a week instead of trying to win money for their fraternity or sorority.

They might raise money for their Greek Affiliation’s Philanthropy- yes. Or the winners might donate it to their colligate Relay for Life, Up till Dawn, who knows! Overall, it will be a very good thing for the college students, PCB, and the philanthropies or charities who benefit from the funding!

Had they had this program when I was in college, I would have tried to split the money between my sororities Philanthropy and my college’s Relay for Life.
