We are back from the beach and we had a fabulous time.
It is always an adventure when we take a road trip to a new place. Driving through small towns and back roads and charting unknown (to us) territory. We felt a little like Lewis and Clark at times. Only we were going South instead of West. And we were using a Garmin GPS instead of a compass. After a half day of driving, saving a turtle, stopping at a sketchy gas station, getting a little turned around (only once) and lots of awesome singing along to the radio, we made it to Panama City Beach.
Most of our time was spent on the beach soaking up sun and enjoying the ocean breeze. I also quickly got absorbed into The Help (a must read); I can't wait to see the movie now! We saw a dolphin family (we counted 5), two stingrays, and lots of fish. From the balcony of our condo, we had an amazing view of the beach and the gorgeous sunsets...oh I miss it already!
We did some exploring at Pier Park where we enjoyed a little shopping and yummy fro-yo. We were hoping to go out on the pier, but we discovered that they charge you (lame-o) so we decided to just walk along the beach instead.
All in all, we had a wonderful time. Neither of us had been to Panama City before, so we were glad we are able to check it off our list. This only means one thing my friends; time to plan our next getaway. Any suggestions? Places you have been and loved??
