Folks over in South Walton County also celebrated the fourth of July in Some very unique ways today. This 4th of July can be summed up by the three B's - Beaches, Bikes, and Breakfast.
As far as the beach goes, Kristen Sanders says the journey from Texas was worth it.
"It's just the family thing to do, hang out on the beach," Sanders said.
While many are spending the holiday in the backyard or a park, Sanders says the beach provides a good break from the norm.
"It's kind of a fun time to get away to, you know, get out of your normal routine," Sanders said. "It's nice to be able to come to the beach and celebrate the holiday."
If sand and surf is not your thing, there was another alternative. Which leads us to our second 'B' - bikes.
Organizers estimate that about 1,000 people showed up to take place in the Rosemary Beach bike parade. They brought their colorful bikes, wagons, even their dogs along with them. Hundreds of others made their way down 30a peddling their patriotism for all to see.
"I think it gives us the opportunity to kind of come together as a community," said Karlyn Hunter, visiting from Atlanta. "People from different places different backgrounds celebrating the birth of our nation."
When it comes to patriotism, fewer houses along 30a are more patriotic than Lola Yerby.
"I believe in this country," Yerby said. "I believe in the foundations it was built."
Her heart bleeds red white and blue, and she not only wears it on her sleeve, she also wears it on her house. Which leads us to our last 'B' - Breakfast.
In what has become a tradition, Ms. Yerby, out of her 50 plus year old home dubbed 'old charcoal', serves free breakfast to passers by on the 4th. Ms. Yerby along with her family served breakfast to more than 41 people Wednesday morning.
When asked where she gets all the energy to serve so many people, Ms Yerby says it's simple.
"I'm blessed," Ms Yerby said.
