A Sanctuary at the Beach
Friday, November 3, 2017

Johns Creek Magazine  - A Sanctuary at the Beach by Karyn Slovin   It was a very stormy ride with frightening threats of tornadoes in Alabama on my way to the Gulf Coast and the oasis awaiting me there.

Pulling into the gated property of Sanctuary at Redfish in Santa Rosa Beach, I knew the drive was worth it. This Newman-Dailey Resort property is a private refuge on Big Redfish Lake, beautifully tucked away from... Continue reading

Houston Woman - Travel Section by Beverly Denver I am no stranger to Destin, Florida. Truth is, I’ve been there many times. As a young adult (to check out the guys on the beach), as a couple (to enjoy more of the offerings of the Emerald Coast) and, even as a grandmother (dare I say that word) to enjoy this seaside resort from the eyes of a child. But, until last fall, I had never gone to Destin with a few of my girlfriends — to do what girlfriends do when they get together: Enjoy the sun and surf and chat, dine at great restaurants...
