Well, I was going to call myself a stalker until I read some of the posts and learned the correct terminology. My family and I ( 3 daughters, husband, now unfortunately ex) and sometimes assorted other extended family members we happen to invite have been coming to Grayton Beach every summer over the 4th of July week since 1995. We used to stay at Patrones, we used to never have any trouble getting a table at the Red Bar and the girls used to gorge themselves on virgin pina coladas at the game room upstairs when D&K's cafe was downstairs at their current location. For a few years we stayed in the cabins at the state park, beautiful, I could book the cabin in Feb. or March and have my pick of cabins, now I have to book a year in advance. For the last 3 years we have had to stay in Santa Rosa Beach and visit Grayton. Luckily my youngest daughter and I come down in March to run the Seaside 1/2 Marathon and stay at the Hibiscus and get to reminisce about old times in Grayton. We have traditions every year when we come down and one of them is eating oatmeal @ Hibiscus. Thanks Cheri!! Another one of the traditions is eating lunch at the Red Bar before our drive home, we are from Tallahassee. We have given up on dinner there. Adrienne, the oldest is 22 years old now and lives in Albuquerque, NM. She will be flying in with her boyfriend this year, she has got to show him this beautiful place. I am so sorry this post is so long, but your towns, beaches, parks and businesses have been so much a part of our lives and I just wanted to let you know a little bit about it.
