    Hey finally signed up after lurking a while. I'm in Pensacola but my Family is from Point Washington. We still have a place there. Went down a lot as a kid, back then it was only Seagrove & Grayton beaches.

    Well Kurt, the "Old Days" OK.

    My Dad, he's 92, remembers when they opened Destin pass. I remember as a kid coming thru Destin and there were only 2-3 Motels on the beach. No such thing as a Condo back then. I remember riding in my Aunts '59-60 model Ford station wagon beach buggy on Grayton beach. No 4wheel drive just big tires with low air pressure.

    I remember when the Eden State Park was just a rundown place over grown with weeds. And after it was renovated when the movie was filmed there, "Frogs" or something like that, a low budget thriller.

    It wasn't the same after the House burnt down and of course we all grew up and got busy with our lives and our own Families.

    Welcome. My nephew lives in Pensacola and I live in SoWal in Blue Mountain Beach. It would be a small world if you knew him. Welcome to the site.
