PARTY LINE: Bidding adieu to a perfect 4th (PHOTOS)

Wasn't the 4th great this year? Wow! Gorgeous weather, clear blue water ... you just couldn't ask for more.

The perfect weekend kicked off Wednesday morning when I found my second sea turtle nest of the year. Woo hoo! That was Nest #29 of the season.

Saturday morning I finally made it to Grayton's annual 4th of July parade for the first time. It did not disappoint.

I got to witness a marriage proposal on the sidelines during the parade by a young couple from Pensacola, complete with dropping to one knee and popping open the ring box. Sweet!

It was a fun parade. I saw Kitty Taylor and Alan Riehl, Billy and Kelly Buzzett, David and Judi Bludworth there.

Breakfast on the porch at Mulligan's at Santa Rosa Golf Club followed, where I saw Richard Stein, Tom Fillingim, and Ed Macdonald.

Then, on to the beach and pool to soak in some of the perfect weather. I saw Michele and Jack Silberman, Mona and Keith Howard, Joe and Kathy Perry, Clarice Zelenak, Bonnie Perry, Judi and Jeff Sikora, Greg and Beverly Schmitt, Rachael Earley, Joe and Lea Capers doing the same.
