Typical Destin Weekend

Sunshine Cindy and I had what you could say was a typical Destin fall weekend. It started out Thursday evening. We decided to head to Hogs Breath for a while. It was a beautiful evening sitting at the outside bar. Cam was working the bar and a bunch of locals were there. With most of the tourist gone the locals dominate the bar stools now. The big news around town Thursday was a huge gator that was caught and brought down to the docks to get weighed. The gator was 11 feet long and weighed 333 pounds. Our friend Jonelle was there when it was brought in. She came into Hogs and told of the excitement on the docks. It drew a crowd from seemingly nowhere to get a look at it.

We had a fun time at Hogs Breath talking to old friends and making new ones. We got to talking to Andy and his wife Nancy. He owns a heating/air and appliance repair company. Sunshine Cindy used to work for competitors of his in both areas so they had a lot to talk about. A little excitement was the police pulling over a car in the parking lot. With blue lights flashing and a couple more cop cars pulling up it tended to scare off business. LOL

Friday was a day to run errands before we headed to KC’s Sandbar in Ft. Walton Beach for a Parrot Head party. Jan and Kenny provided the music. A good crowd of folks were there as we had another perfect night. Mike and Bev, the owners of KC’s always put on a great party.

Saturday was supposed to be a laid back kind of day. We had no plans so we decided to go to the harbor and Harry T’s for brunch. Well Sunshine Cindy and I had brunch and then started an impromptu harbor crawl. We went to Crab Island Cantina, AJ’s, The Boathouse, Shark Shack, Fishheads and finally to the village for a songwriters showcase. We ran into friends every step of the way. We watched football on the new big outside TV at AJ’s. We talked to Matt as he was booking fishing charters. And we met a Nashville music executive who was helping with the songwriters show. She was one of the emcee’s. Pretty cool. We ended the night at Waffle House. We never expected a long day like that but that is what happens in Destin sometimes.

Sunday was a day to relax as it was drizzling most of the day. Julie, Loujean and Jan tried to get us to join them at Miller’s Ale House but Sunshine Cindy and I needed to chill after the past three days. I did order some pizza and wings from Landshark Pizza but that was the extent of our day.
