Destin Pelican Beach Resort Withdrawal Pains

My wife and I tried really hard to fly to Destin this past weekend to stay at the Pelican Beach Resort. The weather did not cooperate two days in a row so we are suffering from withdrawal pains.

If our Destin Pelican Beach Resort unit #1004 does not rent Thanksgiving long weekend then we will be there. My wife is already talking about the Christmas shopping she and our girls are going to do there at The Commons.

If you like shopping any at all then you will love what awaits you in Destin at The Commons!

Fly In To Destin and Park at Destin Jet

For years my family and I have been traveling to Destin,Florida and when the weather permits we fly our Beechcraft Sierra down to Destin.

We are located in west Tennessee in the small town of Dyersburg. When we fly to Destin, the trip usually takes about 3 hours.

For the last several years we have parked at Miracle Strip Aviation FBO and they were the only place to park.

About 6 weeks ago I noticed while surfing online that they(Miracle Strip) now have some competition. Destin Jet FBO opened last year and they are located near the end of the runway 14(north end). I read about the new FBO and even called them to confirm that they were still open. I talked to Crystal there and she told me that if I would park there I would never forget the service I received. I flew down there about 3 weeks ago and she was right. I was treated like a king. Here is a video of their grand opening last year and here is a link to their website.

I would be happy to talk to you about the airspace down there and how to set up to get down the air corridor to Destin. I would also like to give you a great rate if you rent my beachfront condo at the Destin Pelican Beach Resort.

The good folks at Destin Jet will take you to my condo and also pick you up when you are ready to depart. Crystal, if you have a Google alert set for Destin Jet please have me a parking spot ready as my wife and I are flying in this Thursday.

California Lady Visits Her 2nd Lieutenant Daughter and Stays At Destin's Pelican Beach Resort

A few weeks ago I had an inquiry on one of my posts here on my Destin Pelican Beach Resort blog. Trish wanted to see about booking my condo to visit her daughter who is in a special school at Eglin Air Force Base. The daughter is fresh out of West Point and a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army.

Trish called me today to tell me how much she and her daughter are enjoying the condo. She talked about all the improvements we have made since the first time she found my Pelican Beach Resort Blog.

She also told me she wanted to enter some comments and pictures on one of my blog posts so Trish, this post is for you!

Thanks again for renting my condo and all the compliments you gave me today. Also, please tell your daughter how much we all appreciate her serving our country.

I look forward to you sharing your comments and/or pictures with my readers here.

Destin's Successful Deep Sea Fishermen Condo

About 3 weeks ago my brother in law and his family stayed at my Destin Pelican Beach Resort condo during a fall break vacation. They went out on a deep sea fishing trip and caught lots of fish and a big hammerhead shark that weighed 228 lbs. He won first place that Saturday in the Destin fishing rodeo.

This past weekend he went back to Destin and my condo to do some work on the bunks and to deep sea fish. My friend James and I also joined in on the work and fishing(of course we stayed in #1004 Pelican Beach Resort).

Here is a link to a post(has an underwater video of this shark) I did about that fishing trip and as you can see we caught and released a pretty good shark also.

The Resorts of Pelican Beach is located only about 5 minutes from the Destin Harbor and Fishing Docks and is a great place to stay for your next Destin deep sea fishing adventure.

Is There a Deluxe Plus Plus at Destin's Pelican beach Resort

This past weekend I traveled to Florida to build new hallway bunks and remodel the master bedroom in my Destin Pelican Beach Resort condo. My brother-in-law and another friend completed our work there in 2 days and even found time to work in a fishing trip.

I will share my fishing adventure(hint-8'shark)another time. Here are pictures of before and after of the two projects we completed.
