Navarre Beach Florida …

Destination Pole _ RTP_4x6 _SFW

We have been staying at Navarre Beach in a condo these past few days that Jenna has rented on the Gulf.  It is a quad-plex right on the Gulf … park your car at your front door and walk up the stairs.  When you stay at the condos that you will see later, you park your car in a huge parking lot, carry your things to the elevator and wait for it to get to you to take you to your floor.  Now, don’t get me wrong, the condos are very nice and all have a gorgeous pool area for you to relax by, but you still have to walk a long way and carry your stuff before you get to your unit.  Enough about that … I do not know what these ” destination ”  poles are called, if someone knows, please tell me.  This one is almost directly across from the unit that we were staying in and I thought that it looked interesting.  I did not bother taking a camera, so all of these images were made with my old iPhone and were worked up in one of the many apps that I bought when I first got the phone several years ago.  Needless to say, I use only 3 or 4 of the twenty or so that I purchased.  The next is a view of of the back porch over looking the Gulf …

I ran it through a HDR app that I seldom use to see what it would look like and did not bother to save the original images used to create this image.  Not bad, but too over saturated for my taste, but at least you get an idea of the view.  This area does not have all of the spring breakers that Panama City and Ft. Walton Beach get because there is not much for the college students to do … Navarre Beach  has only one beach bar – Juana’s  Pagoda – and it is on the Sound and not on the Gulf.  The place is also a restaurant and serves good food.  The next two images are panoramas that I took while I was standing on the Navarre Beach Fishing Pier.  The first is from the end looking back toward the beach …

The last is just a shot of the condos next to the pier …

The long one is the Navarre Beach Regency and it is gorgeous.  It is a condo, but there is a realty agency there on the premises that rents out the owner’s units for them.   The name of the realty is the Island View Realty.  If you have any questions, please call and ask for information on all of their rentals at Navarre Beach.  That is all I have for now … thanks for letting me indulge my iPhone photography skills or lack there of, I guess it depends on how you look at it.  If you have any questions or comments, please ask and I will be happy to share what I know about the Florida Panhandle … Frank
