Over Memorial Day weekend last month I took a trip to Florida to take part in a bachelor party for my brother, who is getting married later this year. I had all of the following week off from work, which with the exception of a few days around Christmas was the first real vacation I’ve had since I returned to the television news business in June of last year. My job is great and I love what I do, but by the same token it was nice to have a break. And it’s hard to go wrong with Florida, especially the weekend I had down there: perfect weather, gorgeous women and great friends.
My submission for the site this week comes from Fort Walton Beach/Destin, FL, which is where we were for the bulk of our time there. It’s part of a stretch of land along the gulf known as the Emerald Coast, and I will have more from that region in the coming weeks/months.
