Destin is a popular tourist destination located in the Panhandle of Florida. It rests on a peninsula separating the Gulf of Mexico from Choctawhatchee Bay. It is well known for its pristine beaches and turquoise waters. It claims to have the largest fishing vessel fleet in the state of Florida.
The last time we stopped in Destin was in 2008, while on our second Great Loop boat trip. It was Thankgiving Day and we roasted a turkey (below) on the back deck of our Fathom 40 while anchored in the harbor. My favorite way to share a holiday feast is with family back home. Yet that Thanksgiving was particularly memorable for me. It was just the two of us, the weather was perfect, the small turkey just fit in the roaster, it was a crispy golden brown by dinnertime. While dinner was cooking, we dinghied all over the harbor and visited the beautiful beach for a walk. We had mashed potatoes, stuffing and pumpkin pie. I remember it like it was yesterday.Read more
We departed Orange Beach with only a 15 mile cruise to McRee Cove, a well protected cove next to Perdido Key, off of the Pensacola Bay inlet. We soon anchored in 8 feet of crystal clear water and surrounded by white sand embankments, it was the perfect setting for two days swing on the hook.Pin It Read more
