Rare Coastal
Dune Lakes are fifteen, dynamic, geological treasures—freshwater with
occasional saltwater exchange from the gulf—in Walton County, Florida.
This full-color, 112-page photo book reveals the beauty and rarity of
the lakes and surrounding communities along the Scenic Highway 30A area.
Author/photographer Ginger Jackson Sinton explores the beauty of the
lakes and the diversity of the ecosystems surrounding them. With an eye
for nature and the environment, she weaves personal anecdotes throughout
the photo guidebook. A “Sense of Home” in the subtitle is twofold:
habitats of native plants and animals and her own fondness for the
colorful locale along the Gulf Coast.
