Family-LauraLucy Family/Friends Entry #23
This is Vivi in early June, just a couple of weeks after her first birthday, near the Pompano Street Beach Access. We had taken her for plenty of walks on the beach, but this was her first time really getting in the sand on her own. She sat still for a few seconds then started digging in and had a ball!

Family-DianeMcAndrew Family/Friends Entry #16
This particular photo was taken this past May on one of our big family visits. Four generations of my family were along this trip and my grandson, Colton, was so excited to be in Destin for the first time! He couldn't get enough of the beach...making sandcastles, flying kites, and, most of all, catching and releasing small fish in the water with his net. In this picture, he was proudly showing me how many he caught before he released them.

Family-JesseFoy Family/Friends Entry #7
Photos capture memories that will last a lifetime. They also say a thousand words, and I believe this photo does both. As I brought my friend and his son out onto the Destin beach in front of Crab Trap restaurant I told them to act natural as I captured them, as well as the beautiful gulf in August. Seeing the bond between the father and son in this photo reminds me of the love we have for our hometown, and though we, as humans, may age with time, the Destin, Florida spirit will remain forever, as clean as the white sand, and free as the emerald waves.
Jesse Foy, Destin, FL

Family-MariaKnight Family/Friends Entry #2
This picture is so special because it is Emma’s first time riding a wave in Destin. She saw the wave coming and started laughing so hard in anticipation, we all looked to see what was so funny. You can see the wave just passing her by when this photo was taken in May 2013.
