Destin, FL - Day 4

Today we woke up to the ocean clear and pretty. I forgot to take pictures as I thought it would stay that way, but by lunch another wave of algae was headed our way. So we are glad we got to swim for an hour in the clear water before the green moved in. Here's how the water looked at lunch time:

Tonight's dinner is another special I found online. Marina Cafe has a daily special between 5 and 6pm of buy 1 entree get one free and a 1/2 off sushi and pizza happy hour. They also have 1/2 price drinks 5-7pm. They describe themselves as having "an eclectic menu of classic Creole, Mediterranean, Pan Asian and American cuisine in addition to gourmet pizza and sushi bar". So basically they have something for everyone!

My first impression when we walked in was man we are under dressed this is a fancy place. The website said resort casual so I was excited when other people walked in wearing t-shirts and shorts at least we where dressed a little better then them. They had a nice view of the marina and it was nice to sit and relax watching the boats come in for the day.

They brought us some bread and dipping oil while we decided what to order. We also started out with an order of calamari which was cooked perfectly.

I ordered the Pan seared yellowedge grouper with a blue crab meat crust, lemon buerre blanc, basil mashed potatoes. The sauce was amazing and everything was seasoned well.

My husband ordered the grilled fish of the day which was Red Fish. This was served with sauteed vegetables. The sauce was really good on this dish as well.

We tried to get some pictures on the beach when we got back to the condo of the dog, but there where too many distractions for her to focus. We walked around a little and headed back in for an early night.
