Hi loves! Now it's time to talk about beautiful FL. We stayed in Destin at a highrise resort condo beachfront. The view from the balcony was just beautiful. And believe it or not, the first couple of days we were there it was warm and so was the ocean!!! The buildings in the resort are named after The Virgin Islands. We stayed at the lovely St. Thomas. And, one of the swanky things at this place is, all the owners have to do is email the resort and tell them to put out our chairs and umbrella on the beach for us during our stay. Not to mention, we had our own storage room downstairs. No lugging beach stuff up the elevator or tracking in sand. It was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok, I sound like a hillbilly going to some ritzy place, but hey, this was the nicest condo I'd ever stayed in!We ate breakfast at the condo everyday, and grilled out two nights, and yes, lest I forget, drank that yummy sangria I posted about yesterday. Yum Yum!
We went to dinner one night at Pompano Joe's. It's a restaurant right on the beach which is cool. The last time I was in FL, I stayed right by there, and we would walk up the beach and grab lunch. It's great because the windows let the breeze in, and there is a spectacular view of the ocean. However when I dined there this time, it was chilly and the windows were closed=( I tried an oyster for the first time, and it was not bad at all like people make them out to be. They were kinda salty and chewy, but NOT bad.
One afternoon, we decided to go to The Market to get some lunch. Normally, I ALWAYS eat at The Back Porch every time I go to Florida, but we didn't end up going. I was sad=( but there's always next time=) Instead, we ate at Harry T's. If you've been to this area you know what place I'm talking about. They have the cool, crazy t-shirts, and yes, of course, I had to have one. Ha! It was delish!!!!!
