Today we traveled to Panama City Beach, Florida. Our timing could not have been better. A front came through the day after we arrived bringing high winds and big white caps, even in the marina. It was reported that there were up to fourteen-foot waves on the Gulf. Good time to be tied up to a dock. We planned a three-day layover at Bay Point Marina which was touted as a good stop and we have to report that it was. They have a couple of swimming pools and a hot tub as well as a golf course for those interested and the marina staff drops off a newspaper and weather report every morning.
Lisa’s second cousin, Norma and her husband Herb have wintered in Panama City Beach for twelve years and we wanted to get together with them as we did on our last trip. This has become one of top visits of our trips since they are great people and we always have a lot of laughs when visiting them, we kind of relate to both of them in a special way. We had them to our boat, they lent us their car and also had us over to the condo, on the Gulf, for a wonderful dinner with their friends from Canada, Joy and Lionel.
