Panama City to Destin

31 May 2014 | Destin, Florida
Beverly/partly cloudy and warm
Pirate ship in Destin harbor.

We left Shell Island on the 27th and motor-sailed to Destin, about 50 miles. It was a nice trip, although it became a little rolly in the afternoon. The trip into the harbor was, thankfully, uneventful (although again against the tide, so freaky waves and currents), and we anchored near Beauchamp's restaurant.

We stayed longer than anticipated because a low pressure area caused the weather to be unstable, with frequent thunderstoms and strong winds at times. Thursday we had heavy rain most of the day and night, so we discovered all the leaky places we need to work on. Friday we dinghied to shore for supplies and enjoyed a walk around the town. In the evening boats began to gather in the harbor and line up - it was the annual blessing of the fleet, so that was entertaining. Plus, as we were having dinner we heard bangs and looked out to see a nice fireworks show. On Saturday, we went to the beach and while there watched some people flying a jet pack, like in the James Bond movies. It's one of the many tourist activities here. It was fun to watch, but probably a lot harder than it looks. There are boats for dolphin encounters, fishing, sightseeing, water taxis, and a big pirate ship. From what we could see, everyone has a lot of fun on all these excursions. Tomorrow the weather is supposed to be pretty good, so we'll move on in the morning.
