A Stormy Day in Destin

Posted on by Susie

Today I went down to Frangista Beach, located between Pompano Joes & The Whales Tail. Most of the local beaches were packed even though the weather was a bit rainy. We have been getting rain and thunderstorms for the past few days, courtesy of Tropical Storm Alex. 4th of July weekend is coming up and we hope that this weather clears up and the beaches stay clean.
