Destin's Magnificent Magnolia
This 170-year-old magnolia tree died in 2014. In order to preserve its history, local artists carved dozens of beautiful animals and sea life into its trunk and remaining branches. This tree-sculpture has a prominent place at a seaside harbor walk.[Vicki Stevison, 04/17/2017]
