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.

    This is just what I was looking for as background to a short story I'm narrating. It should be up on my Soundcloud within the next day (https://soundcloud.com/ciar-n-obrien-1 and look for "The Lighthouse"), and since I'm hoping my projects might some day be a commercial thing, I'll be sure to credit just in case!

    Heya! Thanks for the recording. I'm planning to use it for some ambient background noise in my app for uni.
