I kept hearing about Sandy Beach from everyone as soon as we moved to Juneau, but it took me a little longer than I'd like to admit to search it out and take a trip myself. It's (technically) located on Douglas Island, just across the bridge, which isn't really that far but just far enough to make you put it off a bit. If you know what I mean.
I'm really glad I made time to make a trip to Sandy Beach on a gorgeous sunny day here (they're becoming less and less these days). It offers a different view of the channel than my usual Juneau spots and lots of beach space to play on. I need to bring Atka with me so she can run around next time!
It was also pretty cool to see the old mines and ruins. You can see some of it, pictured above, on the beach and then there's a trail right behind the beach that has even more. I'll have to go back sometime and take pictures for you all, because it's pretty cool!
Do you guys have a spot I need to check out here in Juneau? Or somewhere fun we should stop on our looooong drive down south when we move? Let me know in the comments!

Also, some announcements and travel dates (for anyone wanting to book a photo session in Kansas, Tennessee, Texas, and some of our stops along the way) will be coming soon in my newsletter...make sure to sign up here!
