Pensacola to Shalamar ...One day at a Time!

Enjoyed the Christmas Parade in Pensacola on Saturday December 8th 

King Neptune

Santa arrived in Pensacola but not oin a sleigh with reindeer he got here in a boat pulled by dolphins!
December 13 2012 FINALLY, we left the beautiful pier of Palafax in Pensacola and crossed Pensacola bay  the weather was clear sunny about 65 degrees inside the fly bridge we stayed toasty warm and dry.
Bill and I entered the Innercoastal waterway about 1030 am. This bridge at Pensacola beach is near the bouys that mark the waterway.
The beaches are white sand they are desolate at this time of year. There are beautiful and large homes that edge the shoreline all the way through the waterway. About 3:00 pm we entered into Fort Walton near Eglin a Air force base. 
This tower or lighthouse is sitting on the barrier island near Fort Walton, Florida 
Lots of planes and troops in training in the air and on the water.

We arrived at our anchorage about 3:45 pm its simply beautiful and the water looks like glass, reflecting the homes and trees with a pink sunset. I cooked Becky kind of spaghetti which we ate like we were hungry. I read a book for the 2nd time called, " Americas first woman Sheriff captures Kentucky's  Barefoot Desperado" by Diane Griffith, I got more understanding from it reading the 2nd time but I am a little upset the man died, I wanted to believe in our justice system and the truth be found out and for all to live happly ever after. 
My new goal is to take better pictures. Things we miss on camera are the dolphins that lead the way at our bow. Then, at night there are some beautiful Christmas lights, boats decorated and homes decorated for the holiday. I have them captured on film but the picture is so blurry ANYWAY, on 12 14 12 our starboard engine has a fuel leak so we are stopped again in port at Shalamar Yacht Harbor with engine parts on order. We will tour this area of Florida during our stay here. Today is cold rainy and dark but the folks here are very nice. We are safe and warm in our slip. Still very blessed and happy, Love you all- JOY
