Shop 'Til You Drop

Today we concentrated on shopping. We avoided the glitzy glamour of the ritzy Destin shops and opted for the few thrift stores the beach had to offer. As luck would have it, I found a few short sleeve shirts (which I needed) and Sarah found some clothes as well. We spent pretty much the whole day shopping. We ate lunch at Golden Corral, a southern trough of buffet style eating. It was good! After a quick trip to Wal-Mart for a few necessities and a longer-than-I-thought wait for Sarah at the scrapbook outlet, we came back to the condo and Sarah headed over to the beach. I joined her a bit later as I like to keep my skin as soft and supple as possible. I had hoped to get a few shots of the sunset but the huge beachside condos blocked my view. I won't go into a tirade about overdevelopment at the beach. Just suffice it to say that I don't like it. Not one bit.
Tomorrow we will check out my sis and bro-in-law's deluxe accomodations down the beach a ways. We have the option of moving in with them for the rest of the week or staying put. Not sure what the decision will be but I think it will hinge on the fact that we don't want to move our stuff around anymore. Later tomorrow afternoon we will be taking a sunset dolphin cruise. I hope to get some good pics then. I assume we will be in a place where the sun isn't blocked by a 20 story monstrosity of a beach condo.
