Fort Walton Beach
Santa Rosa Island
The sun was down, and a beautiful full moon had risen over the gulf as I made my way toward Fort Walton Beach. Even though I had another 100 miles to drive, this was a scene I couldn't pass up.
Between Destin and Fort Walton Beach, US 98 travels along Santa Rosa Island. This stretch of highway is called the Miracle Strip Parkway, and there are plenty of places to access the Gulf of Mexico and Choctawhatchee Bay. I stopped at one area that had a big parking area, restrooms...
... and some sand dunes.
After passing through Fort Walton Beach, I continued on US 98 to Navarre, where I turned north. State Road 87 connects to I-10, which I took the rest of the way to Mobile, ending Day 1.
