Navarre, Florida

When our reservation at Gulf State Park, Gulf Shores, Alabama cancelled, due to continuing clean up efforts following Hurricane Sally, we had to scramble to find an alternative campground. We focused on Destin, Florida but quickly found that all the campgrounds were filled – so we began looking in the area and got the last opening at The Hideaway Retreat in Navarre, FL, about 45 minutes west of Destin. We have had a really nice time here, including the beach.

Once again, Marj and I found entertainment shopping the antique stores but today, Howie and I went to Navarre Beach. We had the perfect day….the temp was about 82, the breeze was constant but not too strong so it kept us cool. The sand was like white sugar…so soft and beautiful. The waves were quite substantial so we stayed in the more shallow water. As always, the birds kept us entertained as well but they didn’t stop Howie from catching a few Zzzz’s.

I always enjoy the challenge of capturing seagulls in flight….today was no exception!

I’m not sure what these two guy’s problem was, but they were certainly squawking about something!

This big guy stole the show. I think he was pretty accustomed to people.

He was a real beauty and very photogenic.

The end to a perfect day. Tomorrow we drive to our final Campground before heading for home. The end to this journey comes with mixed emotions….we have been blessed with safety, great weather, beautiful scenery, good eats, great company and a marvelous time. However, it’s always good to get home again and settle in again. So what will we do once we’re home?? Well, plan our NEXT journey, of course.
