A vacation from our vacations. Been working on emptying our bucket list of destinations. This is just the break we needed and escaping the Northern winter weather.

We stay on Okaloosa Island at the Water's Edge condos every year during the week of labor day. Nice, quiet and peaceful during this week as most kids have returned to school. Beautiful waterfront condos.
