its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Mar. 28 – Fort Walton Beach, FL

Day 22 – Beautiful Beach
The Boat Marina & Boatyard

We rented a car this morning and ran a few errands.  Stan had things he needed to get from West Marine and Lowes, and we needed a few groceries so we went to Wal-Mart.  They seem to have better prices than the Publix (Florida’s version of HEB).  After we finished our work…we drove to Destin.  We parked at Harbor Walk Village and had a nice lunch at Harry T’s.  The view from the deck over the harbor and channel to the Gulf of Mexico was breathtaking. The pictures I took don't do the water justice…they just don’t seem to capture the true color.   

After lunch we walked along the harbor and then went to the beach…I can truly say I have never seen a prettier beach, and I love the beaches in Kauai.  The color of the water is unbelievable and the sand is so white.  It was a beautiful site and we had a wonderful day.

  1. Wow! Beautiful water, I think you DID capture the color quite well. Sounds like I need to put Fort Walton Beach on my "must sees!" Especially since you compared it to Kauai, one of my favorite beach islands.
