Destin Life

We had another fun weekend on the Emerald Coast. It started Thursday night. Sunshine Cindy stayed in but I went to Landshark Pizza for a while. Paige and Jason were working and there was a pretty good size crowd there. Julie and her husband came in with some friends to watch the Thursday night football game. Kerby also stopped in. I have not seen Kerby in a while. He is busy doing construction. I stayed long enough for some wings and to catch the start of the game. Then it was back home for the night.

Carlos and Sunshine Cindy at Crab Island Cantina

I was off Friday. I ran some errands during the day as well as working on the Crab Island Mambo web site. When Sunshine Cindy got home from work we headed to the harbor to relax a little at Crab Island Cantina. The weather was nice. I still had shorts on and there was no breeze. The harbor was dead quiet. We sat at the bar. Judy was there keeping an eye on the staff. One of their girls was with her as she was not working due to the slow night.

Julie joined us and we talked to a military guy who was also sitting at the bar. He was in town for the week teaching at Hurlburt Field. He was an interesting fellow. We thank him for his service to our country! Carlos also came out and joined us. He was cracking jokes and having a good time. Carlos is usually so busy we don’t get to see that side of him too often. Tiffany also joined us when she got off from working at the Crazy Lobster. we had fun having a few drinks and some food. Carlos took a golf cart full of folks for a ride. We thought they were going to AJ’s but about 10 minutes after they left they came by again hooting and hollering. I wonder what they were drinking! LOL

We left the Cantina as they were winding down and called it a night. Saturday was still a nice day. I went for a bike ride to the beach. It felt good getting the fresh salt air. When I got back home I worked some more on the Crab Island Mambo web site and I did some writing for December’s Mullet Wrapper. Saturday afternoon we put the word out we were going to KC’s Tapworks. The Crab Island Mambo Christmas and Welcome to Winter Party will be held there on December 21st and I wanted to see how the layout will lend itself to music.

Julie, Jan, Mike and Wayne at Tapworks

About 12 friends showed up to party with us. College football games were on the TV’s and popcorn was being popped! I tried some of their craft beers. They have 50 of them so I had a big selection to choose from! Mike and Bev, the owners, also partied with us. As the evening went on the place filled up. By the time we left around 10 pm it was packed in there. That is great for Mike and Bev as they have worked their fanny’s off to get their complex to where it is today. What started out as a snow cone stand is now a sand bar, sports bar and Tapworks. A micro-brewery is also in the works. The American Spirit is alive and well in Ft. Walton Beach.

Football Sunday saw Sunshine Cindy and I heading to Sago Sports Bar to watch the Browns/Steelers game. I should have saved myself the aggravation. The Browns sucked. Julie sat through the game with us but she was also watching her Rams play and beat the Bears. At least someone beside the Steelers fans that were all around me was happy!

The place was full. Tommy came in and he was amazed at all the people there. Each TV had a different game on and there were fans from each team at each TV. As the Browns debacle was ending we get a message from Alan and Jackie saying they were coming by. Then Sunshine Cindy gets a message from Stephanie that she and Mark were also coming to join us. Julie left but the second shift of friends showed up! LOL We had a great time talking to them while the second half games were going on. All in all it was a fun day despite the Browns!
