Navarre Beach Day 2

Saturday, October 15, 2011

Since I went to bed early our first day in Navarre Beach, I woke up at 6:30am on Day 2 - just in time to catch the beginning of sunrise. Beautiful!!

Gus and I decided to head over to Destin for the day. We started by having breakfast at Callahan's Restaurant & Deli - one of our favorite places. When we first came to Destin in 1998, Callahan's was just a little hole-in-the-wall deli that had a few tables for indoor dining. It was always packed, but the food was delicious. Then a few years ago, they moved to a larger building (much needed!) just up Harbor Blvd. a bit. The inside of Callahan's reminds me of First Watch, just bigger. And I don't think I've ever had anything there that wasn't delicious - I highly recommend it!

After breakfast, we made a quick stop at Sunsations to pick up some t-shirts for Lulu & Buddy (and me, LOL!), then we headed to Crystal Beach to hang out for the day. The Crab Trap restaurant shares the beach with James Lee Park along Scenic Hwy. 98 - and the beach is wide, with restrooms, a changing house, and easy access. We ate at the Crab Trap every year until about 3-4 years ago when the service & food quality went down & the prices went up. So we skipped that again this year. But we really enjoyed the beach, and it wasn't crowded at all.

After several hours at the beach, we decided to just head back to the condo and enjoy a quiet dinner on the balcony.

And we also got to see three stingrays in the water in front of our balcony!

And later, a little stroll past the pool, down the walkway, & out to the beach...

Stay tuned for Day 3!!
