One of the perks of living this close to the Gulf is the abundance of fishing we get to do. We are horrible fisher people. We can’t catch anything really work keeping when we fish from the marina or piers, but the boys love it and I enjoy watching the sunset. So it’s a win-win for all of us.
One night we took my Grams out to the Panama City Marina so the men/boys could fish and we could get her out of the house. Miraculously, for Florida, it was not very humid and very nice. We didn’t die sitting outside for once. And the sunset made it worth it. If you look closely, those tiny little buildings is actually Panama City Beach.
Okay, so this one does not include a sunset or even the Gulf, but dang I love these three. (This is Deerpoint Lake, still no luck fishing fresh water.)
Father’s Day weekend we took the family and Grams out to Mexico Beach Pier to do some fishing and relaxing. It was pretty busy that night, and Grams got to see a few little sharks up close and personal. We still didn’t catch anything worth keeping, even with all the junk we brought to fish. But any night with my crew is a night well spent.
We were even treated with a little visitor..Hello Mr. Sea Turtle.
And another beautiful Florida sunset.
Sometimes the best memories are right outside your front door. You don’t need a lot of money or have to travel far if you know where to look. With a family of 5, we are always looking for free fun. Get outside, get some fresh air, and make some memories. Those are the ones they won’t forget.
