We have been trying to plan a beach day all week. We put it off in hopes that Alex would get a day off and could go with us but it didn't happen. So I decided that if we were going to go then we better just do it. The weather has been hit or miss with storms this week. The weather online has been calling for a high percentage of storms each day. I decided that we were going today whether it rained or not. And if it rained in Pensacola, we would just go to the Tanger Outlet instead! Good plan, huh?
We headed out driving towards Pensacola this morning and ended up at Perdido Key, FL. I loved it. It reminded me of when my mom and dad took my brother and I when we were kids. Cat tails were growing up and the sand was so white! Of course there were swarms of workers cleaning up tar balls and driving up and down the coast, but we found a spot all to ourselves. The sand was piled high and I planted myself right on top of it because the waves were coming in high today as well.
