Some extra time at the Gulf



After a great four day rally, some of us decided that we should extend the outing with a trip south to St Andrews State Park, in Panama Beach, Florida.  In the end, five coaches gathered at this coastal campground.  We had never been here before and found it to be a great location to enjoy the tourist pastimes of the Panama City and beach area. 

The park is at the very eastern end of the of Panama City Beach with water nearly all around.  It is a great location for hiking, biking, and observing the wildlife.  In season, there are lots of water activities available onsite.


During our stay, we just enjoyed visiting with our new friends and walking around the park enjoying the scenic views.












When we arrived home, we found that fellow bloggers were staying in our area.  So we made arrangements to meet up with them at one of the local popular restaurants.  We have been following  Peter and Beatrix's blog for some time.  It was great to meet them and get to know them better.  We certainly want to visit the area of Canada where they live.  One of their other blogs has beautiful pictures of this area.

Looks like you were camped in longleaf pine habitat. Wonder if there were any red-cocaded woodpeckers around. :)

Always nice to have a good meal with fellow bloggers. The park looks lovely, but I notice you are wearing jackets. Hope it warms up for you soon. We are here on the opposite side of the Gulf in Corpus Christi and it is quite warm this afternoon.

A lovely way to round out your trip. Hmmm ... did you have the Senate bean soup at McGuire's?

Looks like a wonderful place. We never stopped in Panama City, always went to Pensocola or once to Destin. I miss northern Florida it's a great place. Enjoy.

St. Andrews is one of my favorites. We usually stop at one of the "Saints" in April. Your pictures are really beautiful.

How many dollar bills have you hung from McGuire's ceiling? Seems like you are their best customers! ;c)
