If you remember, I did a post about Watercolor, FL recently. I didn't realize Seaside and Watercolor are literally right next door to each other. Watercolor is quite a bit smaller and the homes are painted in neutral colors rather than the pastels of Seaside. Both are so quaint and perfect. You know that perfect beach town you imagine in your head? Yeah, that's it.
Even the food trailers are cute.
A nice spot to drink coffee and plan your day
My kids could have spent all day on these bouncy ducks.
The cutest post office ever!
We did find it funny that most of the license plates in Seaside were from Texas. I was asked if we got together and planned a massive spring break to Florida, lol.
Making the three second drive to Watercolor...
There weren't as many stores, but it wasn't as busy as Seaside either. A few miles further down the street is another cute shopping area in Grayton Beach. We saw a lot of people jogging or riding their bikes there, probably for the Starbucks. ;)
We stayed about twenty minutes away in Sandestin, a golf and tennis resort. It reminds me so much of Ka'anapali Beach and Wailea in Maui. It definitely has that resort feel with beautiful landscaped grounds, golf courses and high rise condos. Oh, and the tiki bar! I can't forget the tiki bar.
I was happy to discover a shopping and restaurant area across the street called Baytowne Wharf.
I had no idea my son was sticking out his tongue in this picture until I uploaded it. Isn't he charming?
My kids immediately spotted the adventure zone area.
I decided to let my 10 year old try this zipline. The only instruction I gave him was to hold on and not let go even though there was a harness. So, what did he do?
He let go, of course.
Then, this guy had to try something.
This was actually pretty tame. It's just a trampoline he's jumping on.
The kids also wanted to try this, but my heart was about to give out after the zipline.
I talked them into checkers.
My kids had a great time and are already asking to go back. I think they had more fun here than they did at Disney World. I did not expect that!
One last picture...
Say it with me,"Ahhhh...."
