Oy Vey-cation to Joy Vey-cation

Woman riding a bike down a tree-lined pathAfter my oy vey-cation in Tennessee in early April, I really needed a break, and I got it!

My husband’s company treated about 50 of their top performing employees, including my husband, and their families to a fun-filled, relaxing vacation at WaterColor Inn & Resort in Santa Rosa Beach, FL. The resort is in the Florida panhandle between Panama City Beach and Destin, and neighbors Grayton Beach State Park to the West and Seaside, Fl to the East.

Guests at Watercolor Inn & Resort can stay in a room at the Inn, or in a privately owned vacation rental property. We were put up in a two-story, one-bedroom condo that was absolutely lovely. We had two balconies with ocean views and were within walking distance to all of the amenities as well as the neighboring town of Seaside.

The amenities at the resort included: Six swimming pools; restaurants and boutiques; the use of bicycles throughout our stay; access to a private beach with the ability to reserve beach chairs and an umbrella; boathouse activities at an inland lake, including kayaking, canoeing, Yolo boarding and fishing; and a kids camp (for kids preschool-age and older).

Pickles in Seaside FloridaThe town of Seaside, FL had even more shops and restaurants, including food trucks and a hamburger joint named pickles that served delicious grass-fed beef hamburgers and fried pickles.

While there, Rahn’s company planned a variety of fun activities, including a sandcastle building contest and volleyball tournament. The scavenger hunt was canceled due to rain, but we did it anyway along with another couple – we had a great time, and didn’t even get rained on (despite the forecast).

The trip was so relaxing and enjoyable that I almost didn’t mind the fact that within five minutes of arriving home (where grandma had been watching the boys for us), both boys were throwing tantrums, screaming and being sent to time-out. Oh well, I guess no vacation can last forever.

    Yay! There is a Pickles here in Norcross. I wonder if it’s the same. I’m so glad you had a good time.

      We weren’t far from Destin, but we didn’t go because we would have had to drive – we were having too much fun walking and biking to get back in the car. 🙂
