We decided after breakfast that we would make a day trip to Seaside, FL. Dan had heard from a work colleague that it was a cute quaint little town with nice shops and a beautiful beach. We decided it would be a nice place to walk around, have lunch, and sight see. It was about 30 minutes from Destin, so it wasn’t too far. I absolutely loved the charm this cute town had. We enjoyed walking around in and out of the cottage looking shops, and taking in the beautiful scenery of the seated areas around the park shaded by beautiful trees. The architecture was a coastal cottage feel with simple lines, and traditional details. It was a great place to relax and take a stroll. Mason decided to take a crash in his stroller while we walked around, which worked out perfectly. We got to enjoy a walk through a local school garden where they were growing flowers, veggies and fresh herbs. Emeril was there teaching that day, but we missed him!
We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Pizza Bar that was right off the beach. It had a beautiful open air seating area in the back with inviting plush comfy seating. That coupled with the beach breeze and delicious gourmet pizza made for a perfect lunch!
After lunch, we headed back to the condo to relax a bit. Parker ended up taking a nap in the car, so on the way to the condo, Dan and I decided to peek at some of the nearby homes for sale. Hey, a couple can dream, right? We enjoyed driving around and admiring the new communities being built with exterior showers to rinse the sand from your toes after a long day at the beach. Ah, what a life that would be!
Since it was the last night for Dan’s parents in town, we decided to take them over to Fudpuckers to have dinner that evening and feed the gators. It’s not a fancy restaurant by far, but its fun for kids, and the gators are pretty entertaining. Everyone had fun feeding the gators and enjoying their meal.
