Enjoy the weather, enjoy the beach, enjoy a wonderful dinner, Awesome!

Where are we today ?
      What a wonderful sleep we had last night. Low overnight temp was 70 f outside. Windows open, fantastic fan on low, and the surf from the gulf lulling us to sleep, so relaxing. Up early and refreshed raring to go.
       Walkabouts for a bit then off in search of some 5 amp fuses for our levelling jacks and a new on/off switch. The switch is getting finicky and we blow the fuse on occasion. Not sure why, I have been checking this out for years and sometimes it is fine for 6-8 months and sometimes will blow two fuses in a week. But they are doing their job. as long as I have them on hand no problem. 
awesome park here
        After a light lunch we took a nice walk to the beach. Along a wheel chair accessible trail about 1/2 mile.
even the boardwalk over the dunes was nice
a few groups of people relaxing and surf fishing
         They call this the Emerald Coast, just one look at the water and you understand why.
we walked quite a ways along the waters edge,
 Suzie even dipped her toes in, too cold she says.
I would have but need shoes on to keep my back pan in check.
the fine sand here is like icing sugar
         We went back home grabbed our beach stuff and down to the day use beach, washrooms close by there and very quiet.
our beach umbrella set up for a bit of shade
there was people down the beach in swimming,
must be much younger
this is the life, relax on beach , in the shade,
 listen to the surf and seagulls,
 enjoying each others company and a good book.
         We were good here for about 90 minutes, then cloud cover came in and temps cooled down a bit.
         Returned from the beach early as it was cooling down rather quickly  and we had a major downpour about 3:30pm. Checking out the area and chatting for a while, Suzie had craving to go to the Bonefish Grill.  Her very favorite place to go for seafood. Our first one was in Myrtle Beach, (thank to our friends John and Angelo) quite a few years ago, next one La Fayette LA, then Abita Springs LA. Now when this one is just around the corner we could not resist. We went there and had a very good meal, not disappointed at all.
hot fresh bread for dipping
          Suzie's favorite appetizer Mussel's Josephine so very tasty and done just right, (we shared).
        Then for her entre a caesar salad, wood grilled shrimp, sea scallops and spaghetti squash. Oh so good.
        My choice was a Spicy Tuna bowl (below) and it was absolutely amazing, lots of wonderful aromas and flavours all complementing each other.
this sure did the trick and was a wonderful treat for us,
celebrating just because we felt like it
        Sure enjoyed this wonderful day here on the Emerald coast, great company, great weather  and tasty food. Yep we are enjoying this lifestyle.
        Glad ya'll dropped by for a visit and hope your day was wonderful too.

    1. The beach was wonderful but got too chilly too soon, so we made up for it with some amazing seafood.

  5. I looked at it on Google Earth and this looks like a great park with big sites and lots of room. I may have to give it a try.
