After two peaceful (and nice) days in Niceville, we and Lorraine departed for a day-cruise of the Chocktawhatchee Bay. We checked out the Harbourtown area of Destin from the boat and ended up at the Baytowne Marina in Sandestin. Many large and beautiful boats here!
Friends and Michigan/Sandestin residents Paul and Dottie joined us on the boat for a fun time of refreshments and catching up.
We then followed the boardwalk to the Baytown Village and celebrated my 65th birthday at Marlin Grill, an excellent seafood restaurant.
Lorraine‘s car was at Sandestin, so the next day we drove to West Marine for some boating necessities and strolled the Destin Harbor boardwalk.
We had previously visited our friend Rose at Sandestin and had enjoyed the area very much. We had the same impression this time: beautiful area, excellent restaurants and shops, all close to the Gulf or the Bay. We could have stayed, but it was time to Move On!
