Why oh why haven’t we been making the short 2 hour and 15 minutes trip from MS Coast to the beautiful FLorida beaches? I mean that drive is nothing for a fun day trip! After arriving at Grammy and Pawpaw’s house on Wednesday we were beach bound early Thursday morning and had our toes in the sand by 11a.m!
Grammy went along with us and we got to experience Pensacola Beach for the first time together. We had a great set up under the pier to keep the baby and us from getting too much sun and were minutes from the bathrooms and showers which was ideal. We also had a Lifeguard tower on each side of us which gave me great relief. The water was splendid and met all my hopes of clear blue/green waves and soft clean white sand. We had a great time and stayed over Thursday night in Downtown Pensacola where we went to dinner at McGuire’s then did the beach and pool again Friday morning before checking out of the hotel. Joseph , Mary and Jordan wore themselves out on the boogy boards, Hanson happily dug in the sand as far away from the water as possible and Gayley loved it all! She had no fear crawling into the water to splash and lick the salt water off her lips and going face first into the sand to taste it! I still don’t know how she didn’t get it in her eyes! Grammy and I also enjoyed the scenery as we made sandwiches, passed out snacks and drinks and reapplied sun block and kept watch on all our beach babes. It was a great beach trip!
