Thats it from the beach

Hi all,
 Well our beach vacation has came to an end and at just the right time for the cold spell the last couple days.
 We had a great time in the Destin, Florida area and will definitely plan a return trip someday.
our campsite at Rocky Bayou
The last couple days there we spent a good portion of one day at the Harbor Walk dock area in Destin. There is quite a bit going on there with shops and dining and is also headquarters for many of the fishing outfitters and dolphin watching trips. They also rent pontoons, jet skis, and other water craft.
 There was also a zip line as in most places nowadays and no I couldn't get Wendy to try it.
 Drinking and dining are also big in a Margaritaville, Coyote Ugly, and a bunch of other places.
 There was a annual fish rodeo going on. The fishermen bring their catches in for official weighing. People sit in small bleachers and watch the weighing, it was quite entertaining.
 We first saw a dad come in with about 5 kids who were proudly showing their catch, we thought they were pretty big. Then the big boys came in and put up a large swordfish and some huge yellowfin tuna. Now these guys were serious and had been out for two days.
 Sure made me want to get out there and give it a go, maybe next time.
 We then took in the United States Air Force Armament Museum. This is a nice and free museum, something well worth the time to visit.
                                   Overall another great area and one you all should see.

  1. Definitely a great area to explore! We enjoyed Margaritaville in Myrtle Beach, it's a fun place to sit and have something cold :)
