The Seaside Community off Scenic Highway 30A

February 9, 2010.  It was another windy stormy night.  The weather guessers promised the rain would clear by afternoon.  Wrong!   It continued to be cloudy and drizzle off and on.  
Joyce wanted to finish the laundry she started yesterday.  However, the machine in the park was broke.  So we took off in the car.  I wanted to show her the Watercolor community that I bicycled through on Scenic Hwy. 30A yesterday.

After giving her the nickel tour we continued east into Seaside, another beach community centered around beautiful boutiques and eclectic shops.  I think this post office was moved from another location, because it was certainly out of place nestled between the Airstream trailers below and the beautiful modern buildings.

We walked around a bit paying particular notice to the converted old Airstream trailers that are now food joints.

We came across this painting of an Airstream vendor outside one of the many art shops. You can see the post office to the right of the trailer in the painting.  I guess you can tell, I liked it.

We were drawn down to the beach by the roar of the waves and got there via one of the shop centers to observe the angry surf.

The above pictures were taken literally steps from the Seaside community.  It sure makes me concerned about the devastation that a hurricane would cause if it even came close.

Then I took Joyce to a classy laundromat on Hwy. 98.  What a dump!  However, there weren’t any options.  Afterwards, we did a little more window shopping in Destin to kill off a gloomy wet day.  
Back at home, the wind was really beginning to pick-up.  I packed up the bikes and a few odds-n-ends to prepare to move tomorrow. Temps are expected to be in the 30's by morning with windy conditions.

We will be heading to a small RV park near our daughter and son-in-law in Milton, Fl.  It should be a short trip of only 92 miles.  Length of stay to be determined.
