There were many causeways between areas of land mass.

More shots of the beach...this was late morning.

This was about lunchtime.

The beach, the walkway, the sand, and the dunes.

Maintenance of the dunes was very important.

We spent the Memorial Day weekend at Destin/Miramar Beach, Florida. It is a resort-y area on the panhandle of Florida on an island between Pensacola and Panama City. It was a 7 hour drive for us but the drive was scenic and beautiful. The weather was perfect for the weekend. We spent alot of time cruising around the town and the beaches. We were careful about how much time we spent on the beach. The sun was intense and would burn you easily. There were many wonderful places to eat--we didn't cook one meal in the camper. The beaches here are absolutely spectacular--the sand was like baby powder and the water was warm and a beautiful emerald green. The houses along the beach were spectacular. The weekend was a wonderful treat for the both of us.
