The Holiday fun continued as we cruised around 30A with Mom and Dad! We shared a really memorable afternoon touring around WaterColor on 30A. We strolled down the butterfly garden path and enjoyed the lush plantings which were marked with the plants’ names to help you recreate a garden at home. The center of the path has a water fountain and stream which makes the garden so very relaxing and kinetic. It was so pleasant to watch the Monarch butterflies flitting here and there among the plantings. Lots of benches and seating areas to take breaks and have a seat for conversation. We walked back to the WaterColor Boathouse and walked out on the boardwalk over the dune lake. Everywhwere we looked there was something to ooh! and ahh! about.We hopped in the car, drove across 30A and took advantage of the boardwalk next to Fish Out of Water to go to the beach. It was lovely – the water was a little wild that day and sent a bit of a thrill through us as we watched the waves. Good day for surfers. My parents made the comment that the folks who did the planning at WaterColor have not overlooked a single detail. And, I certainly agree!
Grayton Beach called to us so we drove down 30A for lunch and came upon Another Broken Egg, a restaurant that serves both breakfast as well as lunch. We are so glad we did. Wow! The food was fantastic and served in a cheery atmosphere by the very nicest waitstaff ever. Mom had crab cake crostini and claimed it to be absolutely amazing. Beau’s was next on our to do list,so we went down the road a few steps and admired all the lovely home accessories that Beau’s has so beautifully displayed. Waterlillies also had a plethera of crafted items for your home – displayed market style.
, a little deli – style cafe that is delightful. It’s so bright and cheery, as are its young owners. They also cater Holiday dinners and I have heard that their catering has been very sucessful for the owners as well as the customers. After lunch we walked through Watersound to the boardwalks that lead to the beach. It was nice to walk over the sand dunes and see the Gulf of Mexico and the white beaches. We sat and enjoyed the view and marveled at the fact that the weather was so lovely and warm just a couple of days before Christmas.
Yes, it has been a fantastic experience sharing life on 30A with our parents. It is so nice to live in an area that brings pleasure to so many and it is even nicer to share the pleasure with family and friends!
