We arrived in Destin around noon...called to see if our condo was ready....and we were told that it would be around one-ish...soooo, we headed to one of the local places for some lunch. It is open air and sits right on the beach...other than the fact that my hair immediately went into "frizz mode"...it was lovely sitting there and viewing the Gulf. A couple of beers,oysters on the half shell and a fried oyster sandwich....and, we were stuffed.
We arrived at the condo and began to unload the back of the car which was filled with four days worth of necessities! It was laughable. as it took two whole luggage racks to get it all up to our room.
Once we were settled in, we headed down to the beach. First we had to gather together all of our stuff....umbrellas, chairs, backpacks, towels, reading materials, and a cooler filled with cold drinks. We were lucky that we made it down there before the sun went down!
Once down there, we settled into our chairs and both of us let out a big "sigh" as we relaxed in the warm sunshine and felt the cooling Gulf breeze.
Around six o'clock we headed back up to the condo and had a fabulous meal of fresh Gulf shrimp, red snapper, salad and warm bread.
As day one at the beach ends...I feel a sense of calm coming over me....can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!
