Finds in Destin


Find #1 - Fun times and Memory Making


Find #2 - A portugese man-of-war


Find #3 - beautiful sunsets

Destin was really fun. Vacation #1 for the summer.

Ok, I know you are wondering what the second picture is. Abby Kaye and I were on the beach looking for last minute sea-shells to bring home. It was evening and the winds were pretty wild throughout the week and especially while we were walking. We saw something blue lying in the sand in front of us. Being the wise mom that I am, I thought it was a jelly fish so I threw it in our bag that we were collecting sea shells in. We showed it to several people on the beach on our way back. One guy said that it looked just like what had stung his nephew earlier because it was blue and it stung like a bee. I went home thinking it was an interesting looking jelly fish. Abby Kaye and I "googled" it for quite awhile until we found what it finally looked like-just like the portugese man-of-war that I have linked to. Apparently, this would be a rare find in Destin and they are extremely poisonous and dangerous for up to two weeks after their death. My mom made me quadruple wrap it in a bag and I took a picture of it in the bag. I was so sad because I wrapped it to bring home (who knows to do what with, maybe dissect it!!) and it lost it's color and legs :(

Anyway, that was a rare find as well as the beautiful sunsets. Hopefully, the fun times and memory making will not be as rare this summer.

Love,
Desiree'
