okaloosa island/ft.walton/destin area has GORGEOUS beaches. gawd i love the beach! the sun, the sand, the OCEAN... beautiful. everything was great. matt, karl, and i decided to leave a little earlier than expected b/c we were TOO EXCITED TO SLEEP so we left at like 11 pm on Friday night and drove through the night... none of us slept.... we sang lots of songs and kept each other a wake... it was pretty fun for an all nighter! we thought we were going to sleep on the beach but then we were too excited to sleep when we got there and had a few drinks instead.... we did take a nap before the rehersal dinner for a few hours. on sunday afternoon blake took us all kite surfing (see top picture of blake with the kite) which was very cool.... i want to go back to the beach already.
