Panama City Day 10

Today is another gorgeous day. It started off with fog and mist and then once the sun came up it burned all the fog away within minutes.

Today we hung around the condo for the morning and walked on the beach. The kids swam in the pool for a little bit and the hot tub and then an early lunch.
After lunch we packed up and headed to the St. Andrews State Park.
It costs $5US for a car load to enter the park. It has a couple nice beaches and an alligator pond. We didn't see any alligators though. We hung around the kiddie area for a bit, where the water is blocked by rocks, so it is very shallow and gentle, and then over to the other side where all the surfers are. The waves there are huge and there must have been over 30 surfers in the water. We were there a few hours and enjoyed our time. When we left we popped over to Walmart to pick up last minute groceries and then home for dinner.

After dinner, we headed to the hot tub and pool for about 45 minutes and then upstairs to relax for the evening. Our last day is tomorrow.. It has been a great time here.
