5 minutes of ambience at the Amelia Island beach near Jacksonville, Florida. I periodically EQ'd out some deep wind interference, but otherwise the recording is raw. A helicopter begins to appear towards the end of the recording.

    Thank you for this lovely recording. We used the audio as a sound bed under a poem my mom recorded, and it was played at my granddad's funeral who served in the navy.

    Thank you so much! I'm using it for an audition. If I book it then I'll be back with the URL - although I'm not mastering the project so likely your awesome background won't be used. Thanks just the same! ;-)
