After our day at Cape Canaveral, we hopped in the car and drove a mere 7 hours across the state of Florida to Destin. As a kid, my family would often go to Panama City Beach (next door to Destin) and I had fond memories of the blue-green water and sunsets. The bonus is that the drive time home was a little shorter than if we had chosen to go to Clearwater or another beach close to Orlando.
The first day we had on the beach was Sunday...and the water was warm and very much like a lake.
This was the view from the condo we rented. Not a far walk. We did have to cross a street--which was only a problem once. And alas...the onslaught of beach photos...
|Carrie was hilarious--wanted to sunbathe with Nick and Liz.|
The third day, our last day, gave us beach frisbee, a sea turtle sighting, and burgers on the beach for lunch.
My only goal for the day was to catch that sunset. And we missed it! We went back to the condo to put on dry clothes and it took us too long to get back to the beach. Still we had a great view of the moon rising and one pic in the glow left behind.
