Recently I went on a girls trip with all the girls on my husband’s side of the family to visit the beautiful Gulf Coast at Seacrest Beach. I’ve never been to Florida before, but it did not disappoint! No matter where you turn, everything around you is a sight to see! I spent one morning just walking around Rosemary Beach with my film camera in hand. I loved getting to capture the unique landscapes and beautiful beach houses!
The food was wonderful as well. Every morning that we went out to eat breakfast I had Crabcake Benedict. I love ordering eggs benedict in Oklahoma, but swapping out the ham for some yummy crab was definitely a treat! I also got to try fried crab claws at Bud & Alley’s Waterfront Restaurant. My mom has always raved about how good these are so I was excited to finally get to try them. And she was right, they are scrumptious! My favorite meal, however, was a shrimp po’boy that I had at George’s at Alys Beach. WOW! I could have eaten that for supper every night! It was AMAZING! I wish so badly they were available in Oklahoma!
My favorite part of the vacation, of course, was going to the beach every day. If you gave me a choice to visit the mountains or the beach it would be the beach, hands down! I love the warm sunshine, the sand between your toes, waves rushing over your legs, watching the pelicans fly overhead, sipping on pina coladas! It doesn’t get much better in my opinion! The only thing that might make it better would be the chance to go snorkeling. I did that once on my honeymoon in Mexico and I was hooked! Although I didn’t have that opportunity this time around, it was still a wonderful vacation. I loved getting to spend quality time with the girls!
