I believe that's drauka99 home area.

I've been done trade shows there, but they were in the fall.

Well January is our coldest month, we had a cold snap of 22 degree wether last week but since its bounced back into the 60s and 70s. Mornings are a bit chilly for us beach people.

Feb. is a slow month and alot of tourist places are closed for the winter. Plent of snow birds (northerners that winter here) will be around but I wouldn't expect any lines or anything at any stores or anything.

Thanks.

Any decent snorkeling or must do things in the area? I'm actually going to be there for a photography conference at the Sandestin but will have a few days to kick around beforehand.

I dunno if they are doing scuba on the Aircraft Carrier yet - yes about 30 minutes away is where the sank the aircraft carrier for an articficial reef. The government was going to start allowwing divers to dive it but I dunno if thats happened yet. PS - they sank it so the flight deck it up and flat, how cool is that.

When at SanDestin if you like BBQ you have to go to Jim n Nicks BBQ its right there in SanDestin, there are only three of them in the world - original in Birmingham, Sandestin and one up in my town.

Theres the Turkey Creek Nature walk right next to my house. I could show you that - its about a mile long boardwalk along a creek that runs into the bayou beside my house. I went the other week and got some nice pics.

Theres also the Coastal Dune lakes (only other ones liek them are in Africa
