Back To Florida

We left Tn Wednesday morning with heavy hearts after such a great time. It was hard leaving friends, but we are sure this will take place again.

We drove as far as Montgomery, Al and stopped for the night at a COE park.  We were up early Thursday morning and on the road. It always feels good to us to enter Florida. We both love it here.  Kevin has an appointment on Tuesday in Panama City with a surgeon to finally have the surgery on his ear for the cancer. So we decided to stay at the Tyndall AFB Famcamp in Panama City until Nov 1st ,when we head about 50 miles down the road to our work camp assignment at Topsail Hill for the month.  Kathy & Chuck both arrived here on Friday. They have decided to see some of the area .  They came over for some dinner and we made plans for breakfast at the clubhouse, for the morning. At breakfast, a plan was made. We decided on a trip to Mexico Beach about 20 miles from here. Kathy and I had to put our feet in the water.

It was deserted and such a pretty day. We then headed a bit further to Port St Joe,  there really wasn’t much to see. Alot of the town is closed up.  Then on to Apalachicola, a small fishing town.

We strolled a bit and shopped in the fish market before heading back to the campground.

Kathy cooked up the rock shrimp that was purchased and we had dinner at their place. We called it a night and plan to just chill out tomorrow watching football.

Ohh love your toesies in the water pic! Each winter when we come to Florida, I snap a pic of my feet on the beach too. Then I email it to my brother up in the cold snowy frozen north and print on it "SUCKS TO BE YOU!" hahahaha I am so mean, huh?

Looks like you guys are having fun, and how nice to have the beach all to yourselves. Hope all goes well with Kevin's appointment on Tuesday.
