when someone who’s never been over to the beaches of south walton area asks us for a few food recommendations, i always strongly recommend heading over to the Red Bar. it’s a must see, must eat, must arrive early destination. we usually eat there a couple times. it’s my favorite restaurant anywhere, handsdown. although i do say all my favorite food stops are in the seaside area. word to the wise, arrive early & bring cash.
even though savannah wasn’t with us yet, trevor was working this summer just about 45 minutes away, so on our first day he came and spent time with us. any 20 year old young man who asks if he can come hang out with our girl-filled family and just “be” is truly a keeper. so of course we did lunch at our fave spot. we had a little bit of rain that day & he stayed and tried to whoop us at apples to apples. it’s a blessing to have this young man spend time with us. he is kind & friendly and engages with each of us!
our house that we rented is about the 5th one in on one of the main streets in seaside, which we LOVE. we’re only a short short walk over to the beach & we’re “right there” in the town for all our shopping & eating desires. of course, more time spent with kim & the three peanuts :). kim & dave are the people that you instantly feel you’ve known forever. each of us truly enjoys each of them. i can’t say enough about how impressive the boys are! and little kate is one of the most joyful children you’ll ever meet. my emi has a sweet connection with them. i consider it a true blessing when my daughters become real life-texting friends with my friends.
we made silly instagrams & sent them to savannah as we anticipated her arrival mid week!
we were so fortunate this year to have much better weather. the word on the street was the week of the 4th, they had over 20 inches of rain.caroline spent almost all her time on the beach perfecting her aerial, which she got!
thank ya’ll for bearing with me as i work through a “few” of our photos. i’m trying to talk about seaside places in each post as i post images as i receive a pretty good amount of emails asking about the town. besides their own website, if you click on “seaside” in my categories that will direct you to my most recent posts about the town we love!
