We just got back from our beach vacation. We missed it last year, due to my MRSA infection, and I really wanted Steve to have a good vacation this year. Bottom line: it was a good to get away, we ate some really good seafood and watched some great old classic movies, and the views from the balcony were beautiful.

We were directly over the pool (four floors down) and we spent some good time there.

It rained several days, but we still enjoyed our time there.

Here we are, waiting for a table at a fun place in Destin - Lulu's.

I was able to catch a picture of one of them, humorously lingering under the "Employees Only" sign. 

On our last day we had dinner at Captain Dave's, which is also right on the water. During dinner, it rained again and, since we were seated by the window, I able to get a few pictures.

Before we left, I asked the waitress to take our picture.

When we got back to the condo, we were gifted with a beautiful double rainbow. It was a beautiful end to the week.
