Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes

rb0rb2 What is it that makes Rosemary Beach so unforgettable? It is a combination of many things…the sound of flip flops on the wooded boardwalks that lead to pathways connecting to pools, playgrounds, greens, tennis courts and fitness activites, the feel of the salty breeze when your toes touch the turquoise water, a bicycle ride to the Sugar Shak at any time of day, glow in the dark bocce ball on the Western Green…it’s truly endless!

Rosemary Beach looks like a quaint European village with its Dutch influence and West Indies flair. It’s as if Vail meets the summer beach in Florida.

Every year, we stay someplace different. This year was spent in a cottage over looking the Western Green and the glimmering emerald coast.  Any view at Rosemary is stunning, but this year was hard to beat.

Every year I find more things to write about Rosemary Beach. It just keeps getting better. My definite “must do again” at Rosemary would be La Crema for tapas, Patchoulis for soaps, Havana for cocktails, George’s (which is actually next door at Alys Beach) for the best summer dinner, Thursday Farmer’s Market for making dinner at home then walking to the Western Green for watching a “beach-in-movie”…this year’s “beach-in-movie” was The Wizard of Oz.

It was a first for our family to spend The Fourth of July at Rosemary. You can see from my Steller that the family field day, concert on the green and fireworks on the beach were the kind of memories you know that children will cherish forever. rb3 rb4 rb5 rb6 rb7 rb8 rb9 rb10 rb11 rb12 rb13
