A Day OFF!

We decided to take a day off before we headed west and today we went to the Beach! Yahoo! The day was bright and sunny, so we packed a bag of snacks, grabbed our shades and headed south! Before we landed in the sand we took a slight detour to visit DeFuniak Springs – the home of one of only two naturally round spring fed lakes in the world. We enjoyed a little tour around the lake and reading about the history of the town. It was very interesting! But the beach beckoned! Instead of going to Panama City we chose the beaches of Fort Walton. And what a good choice it was! While the beaches were more crowded than any others we had been on yet (the public schools are on spring break now), we found a beautiful stretch of sand and claimed it as our own. It was wonderful just to stretch out and enjoy the morning sun! We took a long walk and then headed back to the car to search out lunch. Found a yummy spot right on the bay, enjoyed some great local food, and then headed home.
We got home in time to get the outside packed up and ready to go, and then wash the windows. Tomorrow it’s the laundry and final packing. Then we’re off!

OH – and a Big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our son Josiah – 24 today!
