Pensacola Beach …

The above is a panorama I made earlier today ( 17 Aug 14 ) out on the fishing pier at Pensacola Beach.  Gorgeous day.  Hot and bright.  Made with my iPhone looking east about midway on the pier.  It is hard for me to get over how sharp these images made with an iPhone.  I have two more images that I am going to share with you.  The first is just a view again from the pier looking west with the Margaritaville Hotel in the frame with a few surfers in the foreground and then one of the ” Beach Ball ” water tower.

I should have framed the Beach Ball differently, but you still get the idea.  We could not get over how thin the crowds at the beach was for this time of year.  With still two weeks left in August before Labor Day, you would have thought that it would have been hard to find a parking space in the Casino Beach parking lot, but it was not half-full.  There were spaces as soon as you turned in … I guess everyone still must have been over at the Flora-Bama leftover and hungover from the Kenny Chesney Concert yesterday.  The water was nice, but there was a lot of seaweed.  Thanks for looking and I still have a few posts ready to go that I will post shortly.  Don’t forget to check over at my other blog … there is a link on the right-hand side of this blog that will take you to it.  I finally linked this blog and the other blog to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram in hopes of getting some more exposure and it seems to be working.  If you have any comments, questions or suggestions, please let me hear them.  Thanks again … Frank

    • Thank you. It might not be Paris or France, but it is home. Years ago you would go out to the beach in August and it would be packed. Now, with so many people going down to Seaside on 30A and the beaches at Panama City and Fort Walton, Pensacola Beach is just a fraction of what it used to be. In a way that is nice, but for all of the businesses out on the beach it is hard except for the bars and restaurants. And there are not as many of them as there used to be. Thanks for the comment Theodora … if you have never been to this part of Florida, it is worth the trip if you love the beach. Keep in touch … Frank
