Panama City Beach

We left Summerdale, Alabama yesterday around 1030, a later than normal start for us! No matter, skies were blue and the temperature allowed us to drive most of the time with our windows open. We took Highway 98 because it's more scenic than I-10. Of course that means the trip takes a little longer. But it was worth it. We both like this stretch of highway and enjoyed the towns and glimpses of the gulf.
We arrived at Naval Support Activity, Panama City around 1500 and had to go on base to the marina/campground to get our pass key. We had made reservations so all we had to do was check in and pay. Then we drove off the main part of the base and drove a couple miles down the road to the secure campground. There are 24 sites here all very spacious with full hook-ups. Presently there aren't many folks here. There is some greenery but mostly sand between the sites.
As we drove east it kept getting cooler and more clouds moved in. I think we followed a cold front. Sunset was pretty last night and I took some pictures but don't you know my battery died during the gorgeous part! Hopefully we'll have more sunsets worthy of pictures.

We spent the evening watching tv. Did you see Castle? That was some season ender! Wonder what will happen when the new season begins
Not sure what we'll do today

Tomorrow Sonsearae is driving over from Tallahassee to visit us. We can't wait to see her!
