Destin Part 3

This is my last post on Destin! I so wish I could go back right about now :)

Thursday: July 19, 2012
We got up early this morning, had cinnamon rolls in our condo, and then rented scooters! I was SO happy that I was allowed to drive my own. It was so fun! We got them for 2 hours, and we just drove around, looking at the beach, exploring the area, and looking at all the different houses.

I have to add this picture in because I think I look SO tan in it, which doesn't happen too often for me :)

We even took a little video of me driving it. Probably not exciting to you, but I thought it was neat!

We had lunch in the condo, and then headed to Seaside! Seaside is this cute and quaint little town not far from Destin. If you've ever seen the movie The Truman Show, Seaside is where it was filmed!

I got a Red Velvet cupcake at this cute place called Heavenly!

We took these fun pictures on the beach too!

As we were driving back to Destin, it started to rain a little bit, so my mom and I decided to go to the Outlets! The Outlets in Destin were huge and had such great stores! Look at how cute this Starbucks even was there!

We went to the Back Porch for dinner. I loved that restaurant! My friend had recommended it to me, and I'm so glad she did. It was right on the beach - I love restaurants like that!

I even got a fruity strawberry drink too. Doesn't get much better than that!

After dinner we went to another cute little area called the Harbor Walk. It was just another outdoor place with shops and restaurants.

They shot off fireworks too!

On Friday we got up and ate breakfast at a place called Another Broken Egg. Three different people had recommended it to us, so we really wanted to try it. It was delicious too! I got the Cinnamon Roll French Toast, which was so yummy.

We walked around Baytowne Wharf a little bit again too since that's where Another Broken Egg was.

On our way back we stopped at the Outlets again really quick because I had seen a few items the day before that I kind of liked, so I decided to go back and get them. My best find was this Bare Escentuals makeup kit for $20. Yay!

Then since it was our last day, we went to the beach and pool one last time. It started raining though, which was kind of a bummer.

Since our beach and pool time were cut early by the rain, we went to another little shopping area called Grand Boulevard just to look around.

We had dinner that night at a place called Gilligan's, which overlooked the harbor.

We had our daily treat at 32 Degrees, which was a frozen yogurt bar that reminded me a lot of Orange Leaf - even down to the decor! I really liked the toppings better at 32 Degrees though. They had these caramel cups that were to die for!

I always hate coming home from vacation! The only good thing about it though was that we took a different way home, which led through Chattanooga, where there was a Rita's. My family and I are crazy, but I'm totally okay with it :)

I finally got my favorite flavor too - Strawberry!

And that was our trip! I'm SO thankful to be able to travel every year. I don't know what I'd do if I had been stuck with parents who didn't like to travel - ha!
