I literally get giddy as soon as we pass the Seaside sign in anticipation of what lies in our most beloved must-shop - Pizitz Home & Cottage. We have yet to leave here empty handed. And while I find myself drooling over the extensive collection of Bonnie Fuchs art each and every time we go (good things come to those who wait, right?!), this visit it was driftwood bundles and glass fishing floats that made their way into my bag.
Our favorite eatery is Great Southern. While our party is divided between the Grits a Ya Ya (smoked gouda grits, bacon, spinach, shallots, shrimp) and the Grilled Gulf Shrimp (with gouda grits, divine hushpuppies and excellent coleslaw) we are all in agreement that there's no place better than the sprawling front porch for a Seaside meal.
