We Went to Florida... A Month Ago.


Things haven't seemed that busy, but apparently they have been. Before I posted about our expedition to Utah that we had last week I thought I would post about our sweet Florida trip we had last month. We all went down to Panama City Beach, Florida and spent 4 days at the beach in a suite resort that my Sis found - SPLASH. It is right on the beach in the warm Gulf of Mexico. If you don't fancy the salt water there are plenty of pools and slides to enjoy right underneath the two Splash towers. Our condo had 2 master suites among the 4 bedrooms which both had nice balconies looking out on the Gulf. We enjoyed watching groups of stingrays swim by and the occasional shark. We were really thrilled when they got close to a clump of swimming European tourists, yet nothing exciting ever happened. The weather was perfect everyday we were there- Spencer had a nice sunburn at the end of the week. We of course ate plenty of fresh seafood while we were there. G-Lo loved "SHRIMP CITY"- a little one-of-a-kind, hole-in-the-wall seafood shack with fresh shrimp cooked to order. She even got a t-shirt. One evening we ate on a sweet pirates ship where each level was a different restaurant. The shopping district was really nice too- tons of outdoor shops, dining and various vendors. We loved the relaxing whitesand beach and emerald water, we just wished the trip could have lasted longer. A highly recommended vacation spot that we give "two thumbs up!"
