Mother Nature Kisses the Emerald Coast

With Debby dancing off shore, it reminds us of the respect we have for Mother Nature. Standing on the beach in Destin and feeling Debby's wind gusts and watching the surf is humbling and fascinating experience. While the water is closed for swimming, many of our guests have set up lawn chairs on the beach to relax and watch the show.

For those looking to go explore, here's some fun, educational  indoor activities:

Emerald Coast Science Center stimulates the imagination with exhibits such as a reflecting Castle of Mirrors, "adult-sized" bubble makers, a literally hair-raising Vandergraph generator, an electrifying Illuma Storm and more. 139 Brooks St (850) 664-1261 http://www.ecscience.org
