True Coastal Dune Lakes occur in only a few places around the world, but 15 are found along the white beaches of SoWal!
The 23rd Annual Rags 2 Riches Regatta will return to Grayton Beach on Saturday, June 29, 2019.
Originally organized by the residents of Grayton Beach and Seagrove, the annual tradition is a celebration of America’s Independence Day. Competitors, families and friends gather at the access behind the Red Bar to watch two-manned teams navigate 16’ catamarans in the race from Grayton Beach to Seagrove.
Here in SoWal, Summer is calling for folks to be outdoors in one fashion or another.
Gina Shiflett, the intrepid owner of Salon Twist in Seagrove, was returning home to South Walton from a three-week journey across India.
Her backpack in tow, bags overstuffed, back aching ... she plopped down beside a petite lady in an overcrowded Indian airport and asked, “Do you speak English?”
The lady replied, “Yes, I do!”
“In ten minutes, I probably knew more about her than I knew about my best friend,” exclaims Gina. “And she’s showing me pictures of everybody and thanking me profusely for my time.”
SoWal Mornings are made for breakfast outside, people watching, and exploring. Each of our truly unique beach towns has their own way of showing you their best bright and early.
