Sun and Sand Await

Guess where we are driving to on May 15th.

I'll give you a hint...

And another...
And another...
Next month, we're heading to Oklaoosa Island, Florida with my parents and brother! (Okaloosa is near Ft. Walton and Destin) We'll be taking two cars and we will be swinging by WKU to pick my brother up from his dorm on our way. We'll be staying for a week in a really nice condo on the beach.

I am beyond excited. I haven't been on a vacation at all since my senior year of high school, Joe hasn't been to the beach since he was a toddler, and of course the girls have never seen the ocean.

If you have been down that way, or near there, do you have any advice? Places we should visit, things we should do? Most of our time will be spent doing absolutely nothing but building sandcastles and lounging by the pool, but if we decide to venture out, we need some ideas!

hope you guys have fun & a safe trip. I could not imagine going that long and not seeing the beach & the ocean.....WOW! I guess when you live 45 min. away from it and go every weekend you just take it forgranted sometimes.

You are welcome to come share our beach anytime :O) and it will only be a 9 hr drive!!!!

Looks beautiful. Im jealous!!!! I live by the ocean but still dont get there as much as I would like. :)

You will have SO much fun! We went to Destin last summer with friends and had a blast. Doing nothing was on our agenda as well. =) A really cool place to visit in that area for FREE is the National Aviation Museum in Pensacola it's probably about an hour from Destin/Ft.Walton. My hubs loved it and Bradyn enjoyed looking at the planes as well. Hope you have an absolute blast!!!

Brandy said...

Hey!
I went to that area on my honeymoon!
We stayed in Seaside which is the best kept secret in the world!!! Its like 30 minutes from Destin and is awesome! Look on my blog for May and June 2009, there are ton of pictures of the town!!

I'm in South Florida, haven't gotten up into the pan handle so I can't help you out there....I'll just tell you what seems obvious, but a lot of people on vacation here forget....stay very hydrated and re-apply your sunscreen often....a sun burn or sun poising for any of you will ruin your trip. It will be so cool for you to see and swim in the ocean...I only live 5 minutes away so I def. take it for granted...you guys are gonna have a blast!

Kristine said...

Jealousssss...

Lesli said...

Good for you! That is so exciting! We are leaving for Florida on Wednesday and I am counting the days!!

Brandi said...

How exciting (I live very near there)! ;) I can't really think of any suggestions of what to do... we are complete beach bums, so we spend a lot of time on the beach and not doing much else. Have fun!!!

That looks completely beautiful! Have a wonderful time. I love the beach and live in the foothills of Colorado. Something's wrong with that ;o)

Stephanie said...

I wanna go to the beach so badly this summer! I'm hoping we can find a way to make it work without it costing an arm and a leg.

Hope you guys have a wonderful time!!!!
