Florida - Fort Walton Beach - 6/15/2013
We purposely went a little out of the way as we headed for home so the kids would have one more opportunity to swim in the ocean. In the case of Fort Walton Beach, it was the Gulf of Mexico. We checked out of the hotel pretty early so we could get to Fort Walton and still have lots of beach time. The kids weren't totally "with it" yet this morning.
By the time we got to the hotel in Fort Walton Beach, they had perked up considerably.
Relaxing before swimming.
We had a nice view of the beach from our veranda.
As you can see, the Best Western we stayed at is right on the beach. It is one of a string of hotels that were all built in the early 1960's. While the structures are dated, the rooms were nice and the view can't be beat.
Petra saw a photo of someone on a beach covered in sand so she had to try it too.
Tyler did his best impression of a sea turtle hatchling but he was crawling the wrong direction.
As the sun sets, we end our beach adventures in Florida. Tomorrow, we start the serious drive towards home. That is up next.
