Seaside, Florida

The summer travels continued, and this time Rich was able to join!

We ventured down to Florida’s panhandle, where we spent a week in Seaside, a little beach town best known for being the movie set of The Truman Show. Located right on the Gulf, it was a true slice of paradise.

We stayed in a beachfront cottage, and it was the cutest little place, ever.

While in Seaside, we played a round of golf (the single most humiliating four hours of my life, having never played 18 holes previously), rode bikes, lounged on the beach, and even went fishing, where I nearly died from seasickness, but that’s another story for another blog post. The good thing is that Shorty’s Surfside & Topside Grill was able to cook up the fish for us, and we absolutely feasted like royalty. It was amazing.

Four! (And that water you see in the photo is home to the  many, many balls that I lost).

A post-yoga treat.

No need for a car! We biked to dinner. (Hence, the heels rode in the basket).

Fresh catch! All the red snapper you can eat.

This made my seasickness worth it. I think.

Yep. Worth it. The most delicious red snapper I have ever eaten. Fresh off the boat.

Seaside, and the surrounding area, has now become one of our absolute favorite destinations.

On the way home, we made a pitstop in Destin, Florida to visit one of Rich’s college friends. It was a great way to break up the drive home, and we loved the opportunity to spend time with friends.

I think this photo pretty much sums up the visit for the reunited college buds.

These two... there are no words.

Now, how can the remainder of my summer vacation top all of this?
