"WOW" has been our most frequent word the past few days. We made a move a mere 120 miles east to the Destin, Florida area and WOW! What a beautiful place, white sand beaches and clear water, just awesome.
Wendy had booked us into nearby Rocky Bayou State Park, in Niceville. It is a short hop over a toll bridge to the Destin peninsula and beaches. Rocky Bayou is actually a nice shady hideout after spending a day at the beach.
The weather has also been blessing us with great temps for just beaching it. Actually today is predicted to be cloudy with some rain and we are almost happy for it.
We are using this as a vacation before we begin our four month work camp job. We didn't realize this place would be so beautiful. The difference in water and sand is so different from Gulf Shores it is amazing. Not that Gulf Shores is bad but side by side no comparison.

On the drive home we took a walk and watched a fisherman casting a net. He was quite friendly telling us a little about this. He was also quite successful today netting 13 fish(mullet) on one throw, he threw one more time though we didn't see how many he got then but it was enough to call it a day. He nicely offered us a fish but we weren't prepared for handling it at the time.
It was a nice drive passing some unique beach properties.
