Gulf Islands National Seashore, FL
Yesterday was spent taking
care of some things..
George worked on getting bugs
off of the front of Harvey,
and I worked on the month-end
financial statements for
my ex-job :-)
Today we woke up to windy
conditions, but it was still in the high 60's.
We decided we wanted to poke around
the little area of Pensacola Beach.
There are shops, restaurants,
and lots of hotels along
Love all the colors..
Walking around makes you hungry!
We stopped here for lunch..
$2.00 Bloody Marys :-)
We were pleasantly surprised
by a bagpipe band
marching through the restaurant..
and then got to see them again
in the Veteran's Day parade
It was a cool little parade!
There is a really big
ferris-wheel type thing..
but at $13.95 per person,
we decided to see it from the ground :-)
Mr Gnome was not happy :-(
It was a great day!
Love that last picture...it seems to say it all :)ReplyDelete
Great place! We'll be back to that area and do more next time. You're lucky to see the bagpipes, that's cool.ReplyDelete
It is a great place to spend the day:)ReplyDelete
We're in that other "P" - Pennsylvania right now and wish we were with you! No white sandy beaches here... :c(ReplyDelete
Bagpipe band in your restaurant. What a hoot! Looks like a nice parade and a very fine day. What's Mr. Gnome unhappy about?? He wanted to do the ferris wheel? Tell him to pull out his wallet and you'll take him. :-))ReplyDelete
Walks like that are great - you never know what you might find, some place good to eat and a parade to boot. :)ReplyDelete
time by the beach is the best time of all!ReplyDelete
That's an area we want to visit. So we are taking notes. How about a campground tour!?!?!ReplyDelete
The beach temp looks to be much warmer there! Maybe a new beach pic is in order. :)ReplyDelete
So, with a little over a month of fulltiming under your belts, do you still like it? LOLReplyDelete
I never could handle ferris wheels -- not a fan of heights. Checking it out from the ground would've been just fine with me. :-)ReplyDelete
Fort Pickens looks like a great place! It's gone onto our bucket list. So glad you guys are enjoying it!ReplyDelete
