IMG_1974  Pano From Red Fish Blue Fish_RTP_28 Sept 15 _SFW

The above panorama is from a restaurant out on Pensacola Beach – Red Fish Blue Fish – that we had lunch at this past Friday.  The food, service and the food were great and we really enjoyed ourselves.  You look out over the Sound and the place is all open, which I like.  All of these photos, by the way, were taken with my iPhone.  However, they were worked up in Photoshop before I posted them.  On my previous post, I included a panorama that I had taken from our room on the fourth floor at the Hilton located right on the Gulf … it does not get much better than this!  This is an image that Jenna had taken on her iPhone of three Coast Guard helicopters hovering out of the Gulf in front of the Hilton.  You do not really get to see much, but you can make out the helicopters hovering over the Gulf by the rotor wash on the water …

Now, here are a several of Payton and one of Jenna and Payton down at Joe Patti’s Seafood.  The first is Payton with a iPhone playing games, which is what she seems to be doing 75% of the time these days …

The View from the Hilton on Pensacola Beach …

IMG_1993

This is a panorama taken on my iPhone from the fourth floor at the Hilton on Pensacola Beach this past Friday September 25, 2015.  I could not get over how many chairs and umbrellas were set out on the beach with hardly anyone there.  Maybe they knew something that I didn’t, but I am surprised at how deserted the beach is this time of year.  I realize that school is back in session, but with the rates going down after Labor Day, you would think that the beach could draw more of a crowd.  And I know that it is not for lack of trying with all of the money spent on ads by the different hotels, restaurants, chambers of commerce, etc, etc.  Well, it was nice while it lasted because the weather is going to be bad starting Monday.  I have not lost interest in my two blogs over the last several months … I have been posting to my Instagram account and have come across a lot of people that I would not have reached on my blogs.  I am busy with some other things and do not have much ready to post.  In the next few weeks I will have some new stuff to post that I hope will be of interest.  Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank

One More Reagan Photo …

Reagan at Plane 4 _ RTP _ 2 Sept 15_SFW

It clearly looks that Reagan is enjoying himself as he works the crowd in Pensacola.  Look at the little boy that is stretching his hand out to Reagan … I am sure that Reagan shook it and I bet that kid did not wash his hand for a week.  I still have a few more of these that I will post later.  If anyone has any idea who this kid is, let me know.  Just email me who you think or know it is and I will give him one of these photos for his scrapbook.  I am sure that this kid ( I called him little Johnny in an earlier post ) is upset with our Iranian Nuclear Arms ” Deal “.  Thanks again for looking and please check back … Frank

PS – If anyone recognizes any of these people in any of these Reagan photos, please let me know. Thanks … 28 Oct 15
