Nine Days In Paradise

I'm past ready. We've not been to Destin since October, and I started working 56 hours a week mid-November. My head feels like a jumble of electrical wiring that needs untangling. I intend to go slow and enjoy the untangling process, and I can think of no better place than Destin for that process.

We'll first head to Pensacola and pick up my Mom, who'll be up beyond her bedtime waiting for our arrival. Destin is another 90 or so minutes East. It's gonna be a long day in the car, but OH, is it worth it!

Sugar-white sand, sea air, pelicans, gulls, cormorants, and (due to our proximity to Eglin Air Force Base), a near-continuous military airshow. And of course, we can't forget the frozen Margaritas for Sara Jean and the icy cold beer for yours truly.

If you're in the neighborhood stop by. We promise to help untangle your wiring too!

Have a good time. Keep blogging while you're away. We used to go to Panama City when we were first married. Take lots of pictures so we can all be jealous.

Oh, my... that is so tempting. I desperately need a good long walk on the beach, but there was freakin' frost on my windshield Friday morning when I got off shift.

Frost on the 15th of May.

Enjoy your vacation and have a cold one for me, would ya?

Their is nothing like being on that deck and watching the world go by. GB was that car what I think it is? WOW

Cary -

Gotta agree there. I'm not a fan of anything much higher than 80 - 85 shade or not.

But snow on May 16 is a little much!

All I have to say is that it's a shame "Paradise" doesn't seem to have an internet connection to keep us all updated.

OK, OK, I guess I'll give you a pass on this one, GB. But you have to make up for it when you get back.

When is that again?

Hope you're not getting too wet! We here on the Space Coast have gotten drenched.

Have fun!
