Day 3 of our trip to the Gulf Coast we decided to check out the bay side of the San Destin Resort. We stayed on the beach side so we rented bikes again and headed out.
All but our youngest climbed to the very top and rang the bell. They also had a large checker board that created a boys vs. girls game in which the girls rocked! We decided to take a walk out on the pier.
My youngest son was taunting his oldest Sister and was almost thrown over into the water! I love her look of delight just thinking about it! It was beautiful but cold in the wind so we headed back to go watch the Madre Gras Dog Parade!
The line of Golf Carts that lined the parking area was a sight. We lined up and waited to see dogs dressed in costumes and decked out Golf carts stroll through the Bay Warf Village. It was Madre Gras so candy and beads were thrown at as. We had quite the collection of beads just from that day and pockets full of candy.
My youngest son had his own bike this time so we figured we would start to head back…he didn’t ride as fast as everyone else so the other kids ended up getting back 15 minutes before he did! Dad was a trooper and road both directions with the little guy while I tried to keep up with the others. The kids immediately wanted to hit the beach…they just couldn’t get enough of it even though it was a little chilly.
The next morning we headed to the beach early before having to make the 6 hour drive home. We love the Gulf Coast and Destin area to vacation. Hopefully we will make it back again later this year.
