The Back Porch - A Front View

Just one more sketch from my Florida trip. 

I'm kind of obsessed with that mixture of orange and dusty turquoise that they use on the building and sign.
Whenever we visit Destin, there seem to be a few places we always visit. We must go to Banana Bars and we must eat at The Back Porch. A trip across the street to the Candymaker to pick up some freshly made salt water taffy and pralines is also mandatory.
The Back Porch sits right next to the ocean. Usually, the window along the beach side are open to catch the breezes and the ceiling fans stir up just enough air to keep it comfortable. Chloe loves the crab claws and the fact that the meal is served on a frisbee. We love the setting and the red snapper.

The Back Porch - Destin, Florida

Every time we go to Florida, we eat at a place called The Back Porch. It sits right against the beach and during nice weather they fling the shutters open next to the tables. They have fried crab claws (my daughter's favorite), and various fish sandwiches. I used to always just get the fish and chip platter, but this time tried the grilled red snapper. Pro tip: Get the grilled red snapper.
