Destin - The Greatest Place on Earth!

Well, folks, I'm back in town and back in the regular routine. Sort of. I'm at least home, the laundry is done, the house is clean, and the bags are unpacked.

I've decided that Destin, Florida is probably my favorite place. And, I'm using the name Destin to include all of the other cutesy spots nearby (i.e. Sandestin, Baytowne Wharf, Seaside, etc.). I just love the emerald coast and the seaside living. It's wonderful.

I had the best time with my family. It was great to have some extended, unscheduled time with them. Although, it was painful to be away from Brian. He has some kind of hold on me :). No, really, I just miss him so much when we are apart.

Okay, enough with the mushy stuff. Here are some photos from our first day in Destin.

The first night, we ate at Moe's. I'm not sure if it has something after that in the name. It's one of those place that has the big burritos. It's like a Subway, but burrito style. I had a salad, and it was yummy! Here's my sister, Chelsey. She's ordering something that's not on the menu, you can imagine the excitement of the worker...

This was a picture of the coastline. It was around 6pm. I love this time of day on the beach.

These are a few condo pics. We really liked our condo. We've stayed at this complex a number of times, but never in this particular condo. It was great!
Though that green sectional sofa isn't the prettiest, do you see how big that baby is? It's huge! I bet 10 people could sit on it comfortably.
Chelsey was really taken with the hospitality pineapple!
I have so many pictures to share! I'm going to break it into days. It was a wonderful experience for me to get away and enjoy the ocean. So beautiful. So breathtaking!

I really, really love Destin. And Seagrove - it has such a smalltown, beachy feel to it :)

I'm glad you had such a great time! You deserved a nice vacation at the beach :)
