One of the best parts of living in the Panhandle is all the amazing food and wine festivals.  This past weekend we headed down to Harbor Walk in Destin to enjoy some seafood, entertainment and see the amazing catch of the day from he Fishing Rodeo!  

Our first meal was this  New Orleans style etouffe!!!  Shrimp,  Lobster and Rice,  It was wonderful!  There was a little something for everyone at the festival.  Of course I had to try more than one dish!   Shrimp and grit is one of my favorites!  So of course I had to try it and I found a really good one!  The picture below is a bowl of the Shrimp and Grits.  It was $12.00 and worth every penny.  Amazing flavor and it was from a local restaurant on the Harbor walk!   Guess where I will be going for dinner? 

We saw people walking around with these cute little bottles that looked like Patron, It was my duty to investigate!  I found a place at the festival to drink, exercise and have fun all

at the same time!!! You have to love peoples creativity and how they develop an experience not just hand you an item!  In the picture below you will see me riding a bike.  The bike wheel rotates the blades on the blender to mix your Margarita!  Genius!!!! You would not believe the line to enjoy this fun event! 

After this little event, we walked along the dock and watched all the fishermen (fisherpeople?) delight in their catch of the day!  You an often see this down on the harbor docks in late afternoon.  As you can see it was a great day for many!  There are many amazing fishing charters in our area.  You can choose private or take a charter with a group!
