As we drove away from what has been our home for the past 13 months we giggled and laughed and asked each other, are we sure about this ? Are we ever sure about anything ? No, you just have to do what your heart tells you and that is what we are doing.
Sweet little Seaside
We made a little detour along the way on the advice of Les and Kathy Shanteau,fellow Roadtrekers. When they stopped by Cape San Blas in January they gave us a list of restaurants to stop at as we passed through Destin. One of those was The Great Southern Cafe. It's in Seaside which is a sweet little town made up of pastel colored beach houses and very friendly people. It was kind of "brunch" time when we arrived so we opted for breakfast.
I had bacon pecan waffles-oh my goodness-I had to keep slapping Jim's hand as he tried to steal the bacon and pecan crumbles from my waffles ! Jim had eggs,delicious grits with Gouda,buttermilk biscuits and sage sausage. Everything was absolutely delicious. If Les and Kathy ever to tell you stop at a restaurant-listen to them, they know their food!
Perfect fit for a Roadtrek !
A little kiss for luck from the duck !
It did not look like this when we checked in ,but all is well that ends well.
We had made plans with Les and Kathy to meet up and watch the Superbowl..since it was only about 1pm we talked to them , made plans to meet later, and Jim and I promptly took a long afternoon nap.We probably could have slept all night but then we would have missed that crazy Superbowl.
By the time we headed back to the campground,we were stuffed and ready for bed. Good news-the rain had stopped so hooking up electric and water was no problem for my sweetie. No sooner did he get it hooked up -the rains started again. It was so peaceful falling asleep to the rain on the roof. It's like we never had a break in our camping experience.
A beautiful day for a walk on the beach
So dinner needs to be made and since we didn't break open the champagne last night-we will be walking down to the beach tonight with it to toast the sunset and our good fortune. Happy Trails y'all.
