Rare Coastal Dune Lakes Book Signing with Ginger Sinton at The Hidden Lantern
South Walton is home to fifteen rare coastal dune lakes that share an intermittent connection with the Gulf of Mexico. This full-color, 112-page photo book reveals the beauty and rarity of the lakes and the surrounding emerald coast communities along the Scenic Highway 30A area. The dune lakes are mostly freshwater lakes with occasional saltwater exchange from the gulf, creating biologically diverse ecosystems. Natural habitats for a huge variety of flora and fauna, coastal dune lakes are brackish, dynamic, geological treasures. 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 through the photo guidebook. The “Sense of Home” in the subtitle is twofold: the habitats of native plants and animals and her own fondness for the colorful locale along the gulf coast.
