Destin Flordia Trip

Destin Flordia Trip
Originally uploaded by daveterry.
We took a drive down to Destin Florida over the holidays. It's become sort of a tradition with us to get away during the Christmas holiday.

We get great deals at the hotels and they are only at 10% occupancy. No kids. Peace. We get the pool and jacuzzi all to ourselves. And there's no traffic on the streets on the way down.

We usually pack up a cooler and put it in the back seat. Most stores and restaurants are closed anyway. Cheese, salami, drinks, chips, and coffee are all packed in a box behind the seat.

R drove mostly while I studied, read and sketched. It's about a six hour drive from the Atlanta area. I bought another Mary Higgins Clark and got half way through it on the way down.

We stayed in a 3-star for about $65/night. Regularly $170/night. That's a good deal. So we splurged on breakfast and ate at Waffle House.

Today is the yesterday you regretted tomorrow.

Shouldn't it be "Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday?" Or are you just messing with us?
