Like Southwest says, “Want to get away?” If so, just head a couple hours West and a hop South and you’ll find yourself on the tranquil sun-kissed and Gulf hugging 30A. If you’re lucky, you can swing into Bud & Alley’s to sip on a cold drink and skip across the street to indulge in a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich served from a retro airstream trailer. There, in the Seaside town center, you’ll find simple freedom, relief from stress, peaceful relaxation, and family fellowship. And on a long September weekend, you may even find me and my family, accompanied by our beautiful friends. Until then, keep plugging away at the day job. In the meantime, enjoy a few relaxed images from a time well spent.
