Skywatch Friday

Here's another beautiful Florida sunset for you. There's no shortage of those in the sunshine state! This one was taken from the terrace of the Boathouse Oyster Bar. If you've ever been to Destin, you probably know what I'm talking about. It's the shack on the water where they have cheap beer and live music. The food is pretty good too.

Happy Friday everyone! Click on the skywatch link to see more skies from around the world.

Pensacola Beach

On our way back, we stopped for a few hours in Pensacola Beach. We thought we left Destin early enough to get in a little beach time and beat the tunnel traffic. We were wrong, but we enjoyed our last hours in the sun and sand. My question is, what did people do before they had umbrellas and spring-into-place tents? I don't remember having so much gear when I was young.

Magnolia Groove

We started our long weekend off on Thursday with a round of golf on the Robert Trent Jones golf trail in Mobile, AL. We played the Magnolia Grove Falls course. It was really nice, but I still think Capitol Hill in Prattville is more beautiful.

After two rounds, we headed east towards Destin. I doubt my husband and I will ever go back on such a busy weekend. The Mobile tunnel was a nightmare both going and coming. Ugh - it is no fun to be stuck in traffic!


I hope it's not too late to show some of the grand spectacle I witnessed last Saturday night. My husband and I stayed at the San Destin Resort and their fireworks show didn't disappoint. The only thing I would have liked better is if they had included some music, or at least played the national anthem.

My pictures didn't come out as well as I'd hoped, but I think the video is quite nice!

Porthole View

Grrr... the automatic posting feature of Blogger did me wrong! Hopefully, you'll still enjoy these photos this week. This is a porthole-style window looking out of the Mississippi Craft Center. Hope everyone had a wonderful fourth of July weekend! I got plenty of sun in Destin and some nice pics as well. I'll show some of the fireworks show tomorrow.
