We are back in Kentucky. On our way out this morning I heard on the radio that Okaloosa Island was flooded and 98 was closed. What?? There is just water and sand on each side of the road. Ike was leaving a mark on Destin. When we turned on the TV tonight we saw that Destin was having waves 20 feet high. Gustav was closer and I don't think it turned up the water as much as Ike. Those waves tear up the beaches. When will hurricane season be over?

New Car

We got a new car that gets great mileage. It goes 20 miles per hour and the air conditioning depends on the weather.

Dinner Tonight


Tonight I took sliced french bread and put homemade pesto on each slice of bread. I added a couple slices of smoked turkey, few chunks of feta cheese and roasted red pepper. Topped it with the other slice of bread and grilled it on the panini grill.

I got my new grill from Walmart for less than $35.

Back of the house

We took a boat out on Saturday and got some pictures of the back of the house. The left of the picture is the master bedroom. The right is the outside kitchen .

The picture below is the right side of the house. On the left is the beach bar, right behind is the secret garden and the back unattached part is an extra garage with exercise room.

The sun was very intense yesterday. It was in the high 80's but felt like 100. Michelle and I got burnt. Michelle more than I since she works during the day and I'm a retired stay at home Mom.

Destin Beach

Even though Gustave "missed" Destin, it had a big effect on our beaches Monday afternoon.

This is what the water usually looks like.

Danny's Visit

We have been working hard on the house. Our decorator from North Carolina was down to visit us for a few days. He has such a great eye for design but he had to resort to choking Jeff once in a while.

We spent one whole day picking tile and flooring . There sure is a lot of new stuff on the market. There will be some bling around the house and pebbles are suppose to feel good on the feet. I can't wait until all the different things come together.

Danny could hardly control himself when he got Jeff to agree put a fan in the exercise room.
