We've been so surprised at how it doesn't seem crowded at all---so unusual for the 4th of July weekend. There's hardly any traffic on 30A. I'm so glad to stay away from Destin where it is bumper-to-bumper. Everything we want and need is right here! I talked to a woman from Indiana. She said they booked in January and there was hardly anything left. Everything was all booked for the 4th, so there are a lot of people here---I just don't know where they are!
Day 2 at the beach---the algae is completely gone. It's amazing what changes there are in the ocean in less than 24 hours! It's still hot!
