We just got back from Destin Florida, wow what a place the beaches are amazing, sugar white sand and green clear waters and great outlet shopping. We stayed in the Marriott on the Sanddestin resort, beautiful. Manicured lawns, lakes, and golf courses, also great little restaurants.
Destin is a great place for families, low key and compact, I highly recommend it, I am so pleased folks stressed how good it is to us so we visited. We will be going back !
Gumbo, well not really Floridian but a New Orleans special, but of course loaded with fresh fish from the Gulf of Mexico you can't go wrong. In fact on the last night we had a wonderful Gumbo from one of the Restaurants in Baytowne village in the Sanddestin Resort, we had take out as our little one was tired and I needed to put her to bed. So we enjoyed it on the hotel balcony small adaptations you make as a parent!.
Crab legs, delicious and so fresh our 9 month old even liked these!!
Crab claws, fried southern style very tasty but I wasn't very good at getting the little amount of meat inside of them out!!
Destin is also blessed with a huge Fresh Market you may recall from one of my earlier posts is my favourite grocery store, so we loaded up from fresh bread, yogurts and fruits for snacks.
All in all we had a wonderful trip to Destin, if you haven't been what are you waiting for he he
