Spring Break in Destin


It’s spring break in Destin. Well actually it’s been spring break for the past month, but my kids are actually out of school in addition to all of the families and kids visiting from out of state. I’m sure spring break in, say, Atlanta doesn’t have the same ring to it. We are a beach town and sometimes the population doubles just because it is Easter weekend and three colleges are out. It’s not a big deal usually. When families are visiting, I usually try to stay out of the way. I take the back roads since only the locals know them, and we don’t eat out during the peak times. This week is a little different. It is often in the 60’s to 70’s this time of year. This week, it is hovering near the 50’s with lows in the high 30’s. I’m sure it is summer weather if you are from Alaska, but here it is COLD. The beaches have been relatively empty. I’m enjoying it.
