We've been up to quite a bit here around the Lowe castle this summer, including our annual pilgrimage to the beach with my family. This year we got to go back to our favorite spot in Destin, FL (I can't remember if I mentioned last year, but we had to reroute to Myrtle Beach, SC due to the oil spill). We hit up the same fantastic condo Breakers East and cozied up with the Holloways for 7 days of bliss. There was a notable addition to the packing list this year that made Ryan the drink mixer a much happier individual. I wish they were paying me to push this product, but I'm just an avid, unpaid fan. Budget it in. You need one.
Going back to Destin meant we were able to hit up some of our favorite spots that we missed last year, including The Back Porch, The Harborwalk, and Harry T's. Alli especially loves Harry T's because it's right on the harbor, and if you time it just right you can sit outside and watch the ships come in for the night. There's always a lot of waving and yelling and greeting the ships, and they often blow their horns or hold up the day's catch. Very fun atmosphere. Plus their drinks are huge. Just sayin'. We also hit up a great new place called Fishbar. The food was ah-mazing. I think we spent all of our eating budget for the trip there because we just kept ordering and ordering. So good.
As always, no one wanted to leave and we condo-shopped while we were there. A family can dream, can't it? Where'd you go on vacay this year? Are you the type who loves tradition or are you always trying out somewhere new?
Oh, and yet again. I'm back, bitches.
