Oooh my goodness...This has nothing to do w/real estate,
but it's kinda cute in a horrible way...
Took place on the North side of Hwy 98.
10 minutes from Seaside on 30A.

Came across this article on (local news source)
and had to chuckle...
Bears with a sweet tooth and apparently zero fear destroyed
this honey compound for the THIRD time...
WOW. The electric fence didn't even stop 'em...
Now that's a macho bear... doesn't care for burn marks or bee bites.
Read about it here!!
Really impressed by the wild life here at the beach...gators, bears,
random locals (juuuust kidding), wide range of sweet birds, tropical fish,
deer, fox, wild pigs/piglets/bacon with legs/boars, cayotes & tons more.

Tripadvisor named Destin, Florida a vacation hot spot!!!

Trip Advisor named Destin (25 minutes from 30A) a hot vacation
spot. Close to Fort Walton Beach Airport, great shopping and
not to mention Watersound Beach, Watercolor, Rosemary Beach
and Alys Beach.

This picture (above) showcases Crab Island.
A fun place to park your boat & walk around in the water!
yesss it's really shallow..for me it's knee-waist deep water!!
If you were to need a wee bit more action
you can also cruise in your uber sweet boat to restaurants,
shopping etc... you get the point!!
There are plenty of dolphin watching, fishing, jet ski rentals,
para sailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, kite boarding, surfing
and other water related sports.

Read about it here!!!!!
