The Admiral says she can't see as well as she used to but she never misses a raptor at the top of some far away tree.
The ICW soons changes to white sandy beaches.
On Both Sides of the ICW
This is the Pensacola Channel out to the Gulf from where we will soon be transiting to Destin, FL.
You go right by Fort Pickens.
This strange ship with this strange appendage was right next to our marina in Pensacola.
I had to find out what this strange ship does, the name is Global 1200.
Turns out it is the latest technology in deep sea pipe laying.
This is Seville Harbour where I thought we had reservations but when we called as we were approaching Pensacola we arbour instead, just around the corner and owned by the same Marina company. Seville was under repair and not accepting transients.
This is Palafax Street leading to the water front and our Marina.
WS at this 5 star Marina. The small boats in this marina were worth 15 times WS. There were several small private ships moored here.
This little Snowy Egret stayed around our boat fishing every day.
This is the entrance to Palafox Harbour, very hard to see from the bay until you get right up to it.
Jaco's is the very popular resturant on the right, I think the Marina owns it to.
A sunset over Pensacola Bay
We rented a car for a day and drove over to Pensacola Beach, The water is getting pretty clear and the sands much whiter.
To cold to jump in the water but it was a great evening walk.
