Sue came to visit me a couple of days after my boys went back to Michigan. We planned to spend the rest of the holidays on the beach and celebrate the incoming New Year together. For those of you who don’t know Sue, she gifted Caesar to us, and I learned how smart and manipulative standard poodles can be! I wish he was still around to travel with me.
Unfortunately, the weather stopped cooperating that week and the temperatures were not conducive to sunscreen and swimwear, but we found other things to do…
Did you know Panama City Beach has the only Walmart liquor store? It’s not within a Walmart… it is it’s own free-standing building with wide variety and quantity of alcohol to choose from.
We investigated several of the “must-see” bars in the area, but our favorite was Runaway Island.
The fish tacos were delicious, and despite the cold, I braved the outside deck, without a jacket, because I was not going to miss watching the sunset and hearing the waves! We were pleasantly surprised when a bell was rung to commemorate the setting of the sun.
We were on the lookout for alligators but didn’t see any. There are a variety of trails for walking and biking in the area.
Sue left after New Year’s and I began preparations to hit the road. I still felt incredibly inexperienced at this RVing thing plus I was still having issues with my fridge and potentially my heat…. but that story is for another day. Having Sue visit and letting loose for a bit was a great way to start the New Year… and a new way of life.
