Spring Break

We are on Spring Break here in North Florida.  I thought it only appropriate to post at least once from my home away from home for the week....Panama City Beach.   Today the forecast here is sunny with a high temperature of 81 degrees and slight ocean breeze.  Here are some cool factoids about this beautiful area in case you ever want to visit. 
  • It averages 320 days of sunshine every year.
  • The beaches are made of pure white sand that look like sugar.  The sand is actually composed of quartz crystals washed down from the Appalachian mountains centuries ago.
  • The area boasts one of the highest numbers of bottlenose dolphins in the world.
  • TripAdvisor.com named the area's largest state park, St. Andrews, the #2 beach in America.
  • It's location is convenient for great day trips to other great beaches on the gulf coast like Destin, Ft. Walton, Pensacola, Cape San Blas and St. George Island.
I'm lucky to live only an hour or so away from PCB (as locals like me refer to it).  But when my family visits, we feel like we are on a tropical vacation every single time.

I have only thing left to say about Panama City Beach and it pretty much summarizes the way I an feeling right now.....Ahhhhhhh.
