Thanks for the note! We actually just double checked and, in fact, found that it is from Henderson Beach State Park! Perhaps a different view than you've seen?

The picture of Henderson State Park in Destin, Florida, is not a picture of Henderson State Park. Not sure what beach this is, but it is certainly not in Destin.
