25 NOVEMBER 2012

If you can start your day with a view like this, how bad can it be???  It was a little chilly but if we hang around for a little bit we are sure the temperature will rise rapidly.  It would be a sin to come to Panama City Beach and not take a walk on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.  After a somewhat chilly walk and some coffee we say our goodbye's and ease out of town.

We had to pass by the scene of the crime and Marguerite wanted it documented on film.  To get away from the beach we take Highway 79 up to Highway 20 then turn left, (West) on 20 and proceed to Highway 81.  At 81 we turn North (right) and it's a straight shot up to I-10.  After getting on I-10 west the first sign we see is Pensacola, 99 miles.  Traffic is still light so we run up the speed and set the cruise control.  Crossing the bridge at Pensacola, we chatted about how Hurricane Katrina had wiped out this bridge but so far we've seen no evidence of damage caused by Hurricane Issac last August.
Traffice stayed light even through the tunnel at Mobile, Alabama.
Another hour and we were within sight of our destination for the next couple of days, Gulfport and Biloxi, Mississippi.

We'll put the Wing in the covered parking garage and see what Lady Luck has in store for us.  It was an easy 200 or so miles for the day.
