Beach Trip "Day 4"

When Craig, Hannah, and I were in Destin last year, we ate at Pompano Joe's, a colorful little beachside restaurant that lies directly in between the condo and the ocean. Today, Hannah and I made a return visit and even ordered the same items from the menu that we had enjoyed so much last year. For Hannah, that meant a tuna melt like the one Craig had ordered. For me, it was a shrimp sandwich. Both meals came with pineapple cole slaw and fries. We were seated on the extended (and narrow) deck that juts out over the beach, which gave us uninterrupted views of beach life -- from the parasailing to the multi-colored umbrellas that dotted the shoreline. With our tummies full, we enjoyed several hours on the beach, both in and out of the water. Hannah rode the waves in on her boogie board over and over and over again! We both played in the waves, and I found time to relax in the chair with the waves lapping near my feet. A dip in the pool and a shower later had us ready for a quick run to Wings. Hannah bought a beautiful necklace and earrings and a friendly inflatable dolphin to play with tomorrow at the beach.
