This post has been long overdue, i’ll the first to admit that I’ve been slacking! Better late. So let me share with you some photos of Destin, Niceville and Destin, Florida. Known unofficially as the Emerald Coast, a charming place that my family calls home.
Emerald coast stretches about 100 miles through five counties, with sand that feels like powdered sugar. Its beautiful, and so clean that it even squeaks when you step on it. The coast got its unofficial name because of its bright emerald-green water that pops next to the white soft sand and the light blue sky.
Seaside, Florida is a very unique place. The town was built to look like an old-fashioned beach town, with traditional wood-framed cottages. The streets are radiant, with pedestrian alleys and open spaces, simply adorable. It’s relaxed, artsy vibe reminded me a lot of home.
Meltdown a funky specialty grilled cheese food truck in the center of central square. Delicious grilled cheeses for grown ups with a twist. Coming from Austin I compared it to Burro and this place seriously takes the cheese! I tried the brie and bacon on cranberry walnut bread. You can’t go wrong with that combination, am I right?Veronica and Donovan.Later we stopped by The Art of Simple. A cute shop with curiosities and necessities. Seaside’s central square has a farmer’s market with local vendors, fresh produce and specialty treats. Little Miss Evelyn! Next day in Destin we kicked off the day with Another Broken Egg. (Coming to Austin, Texas soon!) A spot with delicious handmade biscuit beignets gourmet omelets and different types of eggs benedict. My favorite!
Bianca, Veronica & Donovan.Stroll on the Destin Broadway. Even though it was a short trip, I was impressed by Emerald Coast and can’t wait to visit again. Hopefully when its warm, and the ocean is not such a big tease.
Thanks for reading! Coming soon is a post about my trip to Portland and a new DIY.
