Fishing Pier Visit

Yesterday afternoon we visited the Pensacola Beach fishing pier - not to fish but to walk the pier.  The pier is 1471 feet out into the Gulf of Mexico and is a beautiful spot to walk.   Sunday was again one of those picture perfect days and I just have to get out by the water as much as possible. 
  The fishing seemed great at the end of the pier.  They were pulling in fish right and left.  Soon I would like to start doing some fishing.  The fishing in the gulf/ocean is so different than fresh water lake fishing.  Again, need to learn lots.
The beach had lots of people enjoying the day by swimming, shelling, surfing, sunning - all the S's.  What a joy to have this so close to home.
This is the view when half way out on the pier.  We could see large jelly fish floating by - but not too many. We have seen many, many dolphins while out on the pier and lots of sting rays, large fish, jelly fish, and much more. 
After eating dinner last night, we took Mom to her sleep test.  I was impressed.   The room was very nice - just like a hotel room with tv, bath and shower room, and lazy boy chair.  We dropped her off at 8:00 p.m. and Dad picked her up at 5:30 a.m. 
Finally, here is a picture of part of the family room - still a work in progress.
Every day this week is going to be picture perfect according to the weather channel - but I am flying to Indiana mid-week.  Hope it will be picture perfect there also!

  1. So right about the weather!! Enjoying the cool days & nights of Ohio before returning to the 88 degree Houston fall weather!

    I think the hardest part of moving is finding good doctors. Glad all is well! Hope to see y'all in a month or so!
