New Years Eve at the Beach

We made it back to Pensacola Tuesday night. What a long drive that is. I'm glad we don't have to do it again until we move. The dogs were excellent...all the humans did well too. There wasn't a sign of snow or rain this time. My sister is here visiting for a week and a half-ish. Very exciting! Today it was so warm and sunny that we went to the beach, took off our shoes, rolled up our pants and walked along the waters edge picking up sand dollars and other shells. There were more people than I thought would be at the beach and many more in the water. Lots of kids swimming and building sand castles. I often wondered where these people have come from to think this weather is so hot that they will get in what I think is freezing cold water. I mean are they from say North Dakota where today was truely a hot day. Anyways, just a thought that pops in my head. 

Tonight, we are going to downtown Pensacola to watch the Pelican Drop. It is a mini version of the ball droping in New York. There will be music, food, activities and fireworks. funfun!

Happy New Year!!
