Panama City Day 6
I am sitting in our room, listening to the ocean waves and feeling the nice breeze blowing in.
The sand on the beach is so fine and so white. It is like sugar. They say the Panama City beach is called sugar beach because the sand looks and feels like sugar and it is SO true. The sand is so fine, when you walk on the sand it squeaks. It is lovely.
Today was a beauuuutiful day. Warm and sunny and very little wind.
The mornings and evenings are still cool but the days are great.
This morning we headed to Pier Park, a new mall complex just opened last year. It had lots of shops. I picked up a star fish Christmas ornament. This is my new thing. At all the places we visit, I will pick up a Christmas ornament and every year when decorating the tree we can reminisce about our vacations. Last year at Disney we picked up two ornaments, so this is number 3.. Hoping to add more every year or two.
The kids got some nice t-shirts(character) because here there is so many more to choose from then at home. C got a pair of shorts and we picked up some groceries.
We headed back to the Condo and had lunch. The condo was putting on a wii bowling tournament at 1pm. We went down and did some wii bowling and then headed to the beach for a few hours. It was nice on the beach. We dug in the sand, sat in the sun, played in the water, played Frisbee and football.
Tomorrow the weather is suppose to really heat up and stay that way for the rest of our time here. Time is flying by really quickly.
I don't want to go home to the snow, and the boots and snow pants and the mittens, and hats etc. So many layers. I am enjoying sandals, shorts, t - shirts and bathing suits. Nothing is better than that.
After the beach, we headed upstairs to the condo to make dinner. We had chicken, salad and potatoes. After dinner, down for another walk along the beach and then we rented another kids movie for the kids to sit back and relax and unwind for the evening. I think I will sit and chat with the rest of the family. My uncle and his wife popped in for a few days passing through on their vacation, so we are enjoying catching up.
More fun to come tomorrow.
Things you didn't know about Panama City Beach - The water is crystal clear and emerald green. Absolutely beautiful.
And that's the wonderful thing about family travel: it provides you with experiences that will remain locked forever in the scar tissue of your mind. ~Dave Barry In America there are two classes of travel - first class, and with children. ~Robert Benchley
