The last morning we spent in Destin, we broke out the champagne as torrential rains poured around us. Mother nature had given us two good days that weekend with beautiful sunsets and warm beaches and waters. I really enjoy trips with my friends. There’s a lightheartedness and adventurous camaraderie that you just can’t find in a family vacation. There’s no social structure, expectations or hierarchy. Just people and fun. Family vacations are fun in a very different way.
At the end we all signed the cork and I have it safe, to be put into a shadowbox of vacation trinkets that I plan to collect over the years.
