Okaloosa Island Photo Diary

Two weeks ago, I spent a week on Okaloosa Island with my parents to kick off my 3 week summer vacation. It was nice to get some much needed sleep, swim in the ocean, read some books, and eat some good food!

These birds were around throughout the week and were always hunting for fish! We spotted these two on our walk by the pier to get dinner.

The view from our condo!

I’ll have my full post on what I read in August up next week, but spoiler alert it will be a longer one this month since I got through almost 5 books during my week at the beach!


We also rented a paddle board one morning, which was fun because I had never done it before! While my mom and I were out on it, two dolphins came and swam right by us!

Cool frog, except for the loud noise he made at night that I could hear from my bedroom as I tried to fall asleep…

View of the sunset over the bay at Fubar pizza! The pizza here was pretty good, but my favorite meal of the week was from Mimmo’s over in Destin! From the outside you wouldn’t think it would be that great since it is in a strip mall, but it was some of the best Italian food! I had the fettuccine alfredo and I would recommend it if you are going to be in Destin!

And another book I read during my trip! Overall I don’t have that many pictures from this trip since it was mainly relaxing, and honestly I didn’t even have my phone with me half the time. I only brought it down to the beach once or twice! But it was still a good trip and I love documenting trips here so I can look back at them in the future!

Have you ever been to the gulf coast? Let me know in the comments! And checkout my post from the last time I was at the gulf coast here!
