Destin, FL 2010
In the past week I've been to and from Destin, FL. We had a wonderful trip despite Wes not feeling 100% & Megan getting a fever virus & sinus infection. Wes is feeling 100% better after being put on some medicine that seems to be resolving his issues. Meg got an antibiotic called in and by the end of the week was back to her old self. So many people were giving us negative feedback regarding the beach.. we didn't care, we just wanted to get away, even if it was just a week. Worst case scenario, we'd eat at fun restaurants & shop more than usual!! It ended up being a beautiful week and we enjoyed all of the above plus the beautiful ocean and pool. The first few days the water was crystal clear, we soaked up a lot of fun in the sun!! Thursday we noticed a coast guard boat slowing drifting through the ocean.. upon further inspection we noticed some oil in the distance. It was a red color which is how we knew what it was.. There were also a few tar balls that washed on shore that day.. There were still people swimming and the sands were white as ever. By Friday there was no sign of oil or tar balls... Ben was not able to come with us because of school.. this is the last year that school should get in the way of vacation!!
