The pirates landed on Pensacola Beach. I couldn't miss that so we ate a sandwich at one of the beach restaurants and then went on down to the Pirate Paddle Boarding races. Young and old raced on their paddle boards in pirate outfits. It was fun and finally a bit cooler - mid 80's so you could enjoy being outside.
Quite a few people showed up considering it is a school night. The water is very warm......just they way you like it! Paddle boarding looks like so much fun but has to use muscles you never knew you had. So I will just watch and enjoy.
Speaking of pirates, one of our favorite (and I think everyone's favorite) is Peg Leg Petes. Just the way you want a seafood restaurant to be - lots of sand, boats behind in the channels, the food is excellent, especially the tuna dip. (You can tell I am a band director, I just typed tuba dip by accident.) The cars outside at Peg Leg's and lined up all the way down the beach and people are more than willing to wait. Now that is a successful restaurant!
