Time to start making plans for the year as my rates have not changed....and with the economy the way it is I am going to keep them the same as 2010. Destin is a wonderful place for couples planning a romantic getaway or families who want to spend quality time together. So come on in and look around!
I sure hope that you like Destin and Fort Walton as much as I do. Take some time here and look around. I have some great links in the Destin part along with links to coupons and such. So make sure you go into that section. Is the water nice? simply the most beautiful crystal blue water I have ever seen!
Words cannot really describe the beauty of the water here. It is like no other.
If you are not familiar with our Destin then you are in for a treat. The beaches are simply the best you will ever see. The sand is so white you think that you are laying on a bed of sugar.
Now that you are hooked on these little tidbits of information concerning Destin you might want to where it all came from.
Consisting of small quartz particles, this sand came from a process involving the Appalachian Mountains and the Apalachicola River 20,000 years ago. At the end of the last Ice Age when
the world temperatures began warming and the ice caps began melting, large volumes of water were carried by the rivers to the world's oceans. The Apalachicola River, rising in the Appalachians,
carried water to the Gulf of Mexico and continues today.
This water carried the quartz particles from the rock that forms the Appalachian Mountains and deposited them in the Gulf of Mexico, just 125 miles to the east of what is now Destin. As the sea level began to rise, these quartz sands eventually formed a new shoreline. The sands today continually replenish and reach as far west as the Pensacola Pass, their final destination.
