how are the beaches

Hi I was just wondering if anyone has been to Destin since the last hurricanes hit and is the water and beaches still beautiful or does work still have to be done?

the water is not esactly like it used to be, and neither is the sand. give it some time to repair naturally and it should be fine. i drove over the destin pass a few days ago and was pleasantly surprised. it's starting to look like the water before the hurricane. there's a protective reef system in the gulf that filters out junk from coming into the beaches, as it improves, so will the water quality. the photo luminescent algae that gives the water the green pool like color will take time to come back as well. it's not the first hurricane to hit the area. it's all a natural process. it's still vastly superior to other florida beaches, and will only get better over time. come on down!
