We are on vacation and it’s our third time to this island. Usually, we rent a big beach house on the western end and come in the early spring. 

This time our trip was a quick, last minute decision and the summer rates had already kicked in. What exactly does that mean? The beach-type houses we usually rent are pretty expensive right now. 

So, instead of spending all our money on a big house rental, we opted for a ‘fish camp.’ Here, a fish camp is set of small multicolored houses in a gated community near the bridge. 

They are so nice. There are boat docks, a pool, a fishing dock complete with fish cleaning station, and even a boardwalk that winds down by the water. 

I’m so happy that we chose this place! It’s clean and comfy, has a Mississippi Sound view, and Little Bit and I just saw took a walk and saw dolphins.

  1. Dolphins!! Ohhhhh Dolphins! I’m so envious. I’ve never seen one in real life and hang on to my hope to see one, one day.

    The little house looks fabulous! All painted in Ice Cream colours! So summery and so friendly looking.

    Wishing you wonderful days filled with memories. ~ Cobs xxx

    • Oh really? I wonder if they hang out so close because they’re following the fish in. There are several pelicans and sea gulls perched around as well. We saw the birds diving to the water yesterday.

      • That seems like a plausible explanation – I do recall seeing some dolphins near shore in Fort Walton Beach years ago, now that I have thought about it for a bit. Maybe the gulf shore dolphins just like hanging out near all the pretty beaches!


    • Thank you. There seems to be something so spiritual about dolphins… can’t really put my finger on it, but like you said, it’s peaceful. I love that you got to do that with your son. Quite fitting because I got to see some today with mine. πŸ’œ

    • Oh my gosh, that sounds AMAZING. I bet you guys loved that. My pictures here aren’t the clearest, but I thought it’d be neat to share them. We hope to go on a dolphin cruise. A boat takes you out and you can see them up close. Hopefully I can get some close ups. Hope you have a great day.
