While living in the Fort Rucker / Enterprise Alabama area there are many day trips to take on the weekends. During the FT Rucker Elementary School Fall Break, we took a trip to Destin Florida. The total miles from Fort Rucker was about 105 miles. Heading south on Hwy 27 we drove through Clayhatchee & Geneva Alabama. Passing the Florida state line and headed for the sandy beaches we passed through De Funiak Springs, Rock Hill, Freeport, Santa Rosa Beach and finally the destination of Destin Florida.
Spending the day at Beasley Park in Okaloosa County, we enjoyed the gentle breeze the ocean brought onto shore. The skies were overcast and I was able to get some interesting pictures of the clouds passing us by. The seagulls came in masses as we feed them the extra bread we brought along. After a fun filled day of swimming, jumping the waves and sand castle building we drove down to the board walk. The cost was $1.00 to access the boardwalk. We watched as the sun set in the horizon.
Driving along Hwy 98 we ventured to Fort Walton Beach. We were too late for access into the Temple Mounds Historic Site, but we did stop to take pictures.
Before heading out on a roadtrip I always check out roadside american and try to visit one of the off the wall landmarks. Fort Walton Beach brought our adventures to the Maytag Repairman. The Maytag Repairman statue is located on top of Andrews Cooling, Heating & Appliances in Fort Walton Florida.
I would also like to share a picture of the Mystery Machine we saw while in Fort Walton Florida.
