South Walton Beaches Wine & Food Fest kicked off last Thursday afternoon with a VIP opening meet and greet on Grand Boulevard 's lawn. The weather was perfect and Stacey Brady, Myra Williams, Chan and Laura Cox, Cassie Cox, Mario Mardones, Demetria and Richard McNeese, Jon Ervin, Lorre and Bob James, Megan Harrison, Lauren Magli, Crawford Sandifer, Hillary Fosdyck, Michel Thibault, Linda and Joe Harper, and Jim Bagby enjoyed.   

Saturday's wine auction was well attended, including by Jane Soloman, Lauren Magli, Justin Gaffrey, Tiffanie Shelton, Joan Carter, and Emeril Lagasse.

Before heading to the Grand Tasting on Sunday, I had a fun adventure. I arose before daylight and took coffee out to the beach to watch the sun rise. We who live here tend to take the beach for granted. If you are lucky enough to live here and have not experienced this, do it! Sweet!

I saw Kathy Perry also out for an early morning walk that day.

Sunday's Grand Tasting also enjoyed some delightful weather. I saw Demetria and Richard McNeese, Lorre James, Demetrius Fuller, Scott Russell, Lydia Smith, Peggy Lillie, Lori Seering, Juan Francisco Adaro, John and Nancy Cottle, Tim and Julie Brown there. I hear Shaye Smith, and Susan Benton also attended.

Dave and Carol Rauschkolb, Stephen Marlette and Harriet Crommelin, James and Rhonda Murray, went to the New Orleans Jazz Fest.

Susan Benton attended the Alabama Seafood Summit, talking sustainable seafood, in Mobile last week.
