I am so thankful for the opportunity to spend a week at Fort Walton Beach with some lifelong friends. The four of us had not been together in 31 years. Flights were purchased, bags were packed and a girls trip was soon underway.
We are the type of friends who picked up right where we left off. Three of us have been friends since elementary school and the fourth friend entered our lives as teenagers. It truly was a relaxing and fun trip. We hung out at the beach or by one of the two pools at the resort during the day. We grabbed dinner in the evenings and played games or watched movies at night.
We had some pretty amazing food. The restaurants we ate at included -
- Stewby's Seafood Shanty
- The Back Porch
- McGuire's Irish Pub
- Dewey Destin's Harborside
- Floyd's Shrimp House
- Pompano Joe's
- AJ's Oyster Shanty
We also found an incredible breakfast/brunch spot called Asiago's Skillet. This was a great spot for a couple of lazy mornings - especially when the weather wasn't cooperating.
It was my first visit to this area and I hope to return one day. It is a gorgeous area. Staying on Okaloosa Island provided a quiet, laid back atmosphere. Destin was just down the road for some of our dinner choices.
