Tony and Wendy invited us to Destin this year with them and we had a blast! Gabe and Maggie were not too sure about the sand and water at first but around middle of day two they both started loving it. It was great from then on. The only thing is I had to stay right on Maggie cause she was ready to just walk right in the ocean.
There was no oil there yet. I think Tony found a tar ball in his pocket one day but that was it. It was crystal clear Destin for the most part. So I even got out in the waves. I had so much fun! But the next morning I got up feeling like I had been beat the day before.
