Beachy Keen
Hi friends! We've just returned from a fabulous beach vacation in Navarre, Florida! The weather was perfect (about 85 degrees and sunny), our beach home was spacious and had two glorious views of the gulf. Our planes were on time and the boys enjoyed earning their wings. Unfortunately, the red flags were out for 5 of our 7 days, which means we could not get in the water!!! That was a bummer, but we still had a good trip. One hour before we were due at the airport, we found a nice sound-side beach where we could have spent the week. Next time we'll go there!

We could see dolphins jumping out of the water from our beach! It was very excited to see them swimming so close to us. In fact, they were close enough we could have gone out to swim with them!

We took the boys to Destin for a day to revisit our honeymoon spot. We didn't even recognize the place. Once a quiet and quaint little beach spot, the place is now all glitz and glamour with million dollar homes lined up along the seashore. Frangista Beach Inn was wiped out by a hurricane and our favorite little dive, the Crab Trap, burned down and was replaced by a big, fancy restaurant. The town is beautiful, but we missed the old days.

Across the sound at the bottom of the bridge was a great little nature park with a sound side beach, a bog, a pond, a playground and a butterfly house. We spent a lot of time there watching the local birds (herons, cranes, turns, sandpipers, ducks....) and photographing flowers and butterflies. James even caught a couple crabs for the boys to examine!

We also spent a day at the Naval Aviation Museum. We spent 4 hours inside, but could have stayed all day sans children. It is an amazing museum I highly recommend. We also went to the military cemetary on the naval base, where James' uncle is buried. It was beautiful and humbling.

All in all, it was a great week. We're rested and tan and glad to be home.

There is something that is missing here. Remember good credit is helpful and bad credit repair mortgage loan fix repair credit FICO bankruptcy foreclosure equity equifax experian TU Transunion dispute That might improve the interest rate and again lower payments are definitely preferred.
