Day 19 - Last Day in Destin, FL Area

This morning we got up, dressed and away we went to eat breakfast at a place called Donut Hole. It appears that they do a lot of business.  There were two lines outside; one line to eat breakfast in the restaurant & a line to purchase donuts & pastries to go.  We were probably in line for close to 45 minutes.  We all had a yummy breakfast.

After we left the restaurant, Pops drove us to the boat harbor which seemed to take a while to get there because there was quite a bit of traffic.  Finding a parking spot near the harbor was not a easy task but Pops found a place after riding around the area a couple of times.

There are several places there that offer boat rides to look at dolphins, to fish, and there was a Pirate adventure boat. We tried to reserve the Pirate Adventure Boat Ride but it looked like a storm was coming our way and they thought it would end up getting cancelled, so we decided against it.

We walked around, took pictures and went into some shops.

Terryn spotted a Zip Line....this girl is not scared of anything.  It appeared okay for her age and size and it was priced right, so we let her go on it.

Then, she spotted a acrobatic stretch line on a trampoline and took a try at that.  She did several double flips.  She had told us that when she grows up she wants to work at the Dolphin Show at Sea World and be part of the acrobatic acts....we think this might be right up her alley.  Kolton is not as brave as Terryn...he opted to just watch his sister with us.

It looked like it could pour down rain at any time, so we went back to the truck and headed back to the campground.

Terryn, Kolton & I decided to explore the park so we went walking.
Terryn & Kolton played shuffleboard for a while.  When we got back to the camper, Kolton got artistic and made a tree out of twigs and leaves that were on the ground . He was proud of his work of art so I took a picture of it... and I thought it was quite good!!!

We decided to get our swimwear on and catch a ride on the trolley to the beach boardwalk.

While walking the boardwalk to the beach, we spotted a deer on the sand dunes.

It was cloudy, breezy and the waves were a lot rougher today but we still enjoyed it.  Kolton, especially, had a blast with the rough waves.

We played in the water a little over an hour and caught the trolley back to our area of the campground.  We all showered and went to a nearby restaurant, 'Elmo's Grill', that serves sea food for dinner.  We ate dinner and when we got back to the campground, they were hosting a outside movie so Pops and the kids went to watch the movie, Eight Below, while I stayed at the camper to do laundry and get ready for traveling tomorrow.

We all enjoyed Destin area and the white sandy beaches.  It has been a great two days that we have had! We were happy that our grandkids could experience the ocean....they loved it!!!
