I had to get back to my roots! Well...I'm not originally from the Gulf, but there was SAND! And there was VASTNESS of salty water. I won't get into all the differences between the Gulf and the Pacific, but we did have a great, relaxing time at Laguna Beach near Panama City.
We arrived about 4:30 in the afternoon ( a two hour drive from Fort Rucker). We enjoyed the late afternoon sun and heat, and then watched the sun go gown. It was sooo perfect. We need to do this as much as possible before we move to the middle of the country next year...away from all beaches!
I posted a bunch more pictures on our Family Files. Just go to
if you want to see more pictures of the kids at the beach.
