Just a Little Beach Lovin’

by The Hometown Tourist on February 6th, 2012

I welcome each month as if it were a new beginning and in particular, February.   Why, you ask?   Well, it’s the month of love!!   For those of you that criticize Valentine’s Day as being a Hallmark-holiday, steer clear of me because on this day, and pretty much for the next week and a half, I will be wearing pink, tying heart bows in my daughter’s hair, making heart shaped pancakes and chocolate souffle, and….if I was forty years older, would crochet myself a sweater (or should I say, tank top.   After all, this is Florida!) with a big, red heart on it!

Here are upcoming Valentine Day Events and Specials for the Beaches of South Walton area:

First Note Music Hall- a new and exciting venue on hwy 30a in Blue Mountain Beach (Redfish Village).   Nothing like a great menu and live music.   Call 850-622-0221 for reservations.

The Village of Baytowne Wharf- Valentine Dinner for two and a flight of wine.   Anytime I hear flight of wine, I’m there!

The Village of Baytowne Wharf- Solaris Yacht.   A three course dinner for two, live music, champagne, and a cruise around the bay in a yacht.   Yes, champagne and a yacht.   I could get used to that!

The 2012 Valentine Tour of Homes -So this may not be as romantic but certainly a fun way to spend a Saturday.   Plus it comes four days after Valentines.   So technically, you can get a 2 V-day dates in one week!    Saturday, February 18, 10:00am — 4:00pm, showcasing some of South Walton’s most beautiful and unique homes.

The proceeds from the self-guided annual Tour benefit the CAA’s Educational Giving Program, which provides over $20,000 in grants to Walton County teachers and scholarships for students to participate in supplemental and continuing art education.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 the day of the event.

The Wine Bar at Grand Blvd, Sandestin- A great way to kick off Valentine’s Week!   A tasting of fine chocolate and champagne.   Who needs food after this decadence?!   Feb 12, 2012   from 2-4pm.   Call 850.982.9761 for details.

Remember, all you need is love.   And a comfy pair of flip-flops!

Wish you were here!
