View Full Version : Destin, FL in October......Perfect

October 19th, 2015, 10:22 AM
Good morning, forum friends. We were in Destin this past week for DH's vacation.....our 1st time in October. I highly recommend it! The weather was perfect, the view was awesome, the seafood was delicious & spending this relaxing time with hubby was priceless. We did a whole lot of nothing.......just sitting & staring at the view & walking & enjoying the view. I even watched parts of a few Craftsy classes while watching the sunset (posted a pic of that already) or at night listening to the waves. Also read a few stories from M* Stitched Together book while sitting on the beach. We planned to stay Monday thru Thursday but stayed an extra day because it was so nice....with the condo owner approval of course. It's not like we barricaded ourselves in the room and refused to leave. However, that did cross our minds. :D

Sonic.....I did my best to eat as much shrimp as possible for you. Said in my best "Bubba Gump" voice........I had fried shrimp, broiled shrimp, shrimp tacos & shrimp alfredo. :D ....and a few slices of key lime pie. :icon_tup:

Here's a few pictures of the sunrise, sunset & the view.

I love the north FL coast. DH was stationed in Pensacola many years ago, and I did a lot of beach walking. The water is so blue and the sand so white!

Sounds heavenly--beach, blue water, white sand, palm trees...and all the shrimp you can eat. Only thing missing an ice cold tropical drink, but you probably sampled a couple of those too!

I love the beach at Destin. Several friends and I went there several years ago and we loved every minute of it. Destin is a popular destination for people from St. Louis, seems everyone we talked to was from around the St. Louis area.

We love Destin. We used to go there when we lived in Pensacola.
