We started our last full day in Destin at the Bad Ass Coffee Co. getting our java on.
Then it was off to the beach.

Stella and James found a crab.

They went jellyfishing – we kept him just long enough for me to take a photo, then back in the Gulf he went.

Stella flew a kite…

Commanded her minions…

And built a sand-tiki head.

We went out to eat at the “Surf Hut” for our final evening meal.
Nice view, eh?

Vacation Day #5 (225/365)

20150813_IMG_4753
TIME: 11:29 AM
PLACE: Destin, FL
SUBJECT: James, Stella & Me – Parasailing

As part of our condo rental package, we received one complementary parasail each day of our vacation.
I was thrilled. 
I am very cheap thrifty, and this way I was only going to have to pay for one child!
(Claudia wanted to keep her feet on the ground)
Then I read the fine print….
You had to be 18 to use the freebie.

And that’s how I ended up sailing over the Gulf of Mexico.
What amazed me was how quiet it was up there.

We asked to be dipped at the end.

I’m glad I did it.
It was awesome!
