A sunny beach vacation to Panama city Beach
Non-working vacations are very rare for me. Taking a vacation that last longer than two days is also very rare for. So this past June, my husband’s sister invited us to go with her to Panama City Beach. I have never been to the beach at least as far as I can recall. And I had a blast. For a whole week I did basically nothing, with some fun stuff thrown in.
We stayed in this really cute condo that is located along 30-A and was located 70 yards from the beach. We could walk there. It was so amazing. This is my first view of the ocean and boy was it beautiful. It was hot but with the breeze coming off the ocean it wasn’t to bad.
Day two was spent at the farmer’s market in Seaside. It was smaller than what I am used but we came home with some yummy tomatoes and cucumbers.
On Wednesday we got to see the Sand Dunes at Grayton Beach. Here we really felt the heat from the sun bouncing off the white sand dunes. We didn’t even make the whole 1 mile trail they had it was so hot. And we usually have no problem on hikes. Poor Benton was even panting.
I got to see DOLPHINS!!! We took a dolphin tour with Blue Dolphins Tour. It was amazing. We didn’t see them on our first drive-thru but when we came back from our trip to collect sand dollars we finally got to see them. It was so amazing. The dolphin tour lets you swim with them but they decided they did not wish to cooperate. I also chickened out at the last second and decided not to get in the water. He was not a fan of the swimming with dolphins idea. So he was happy when I decided not to go. Here is a short clip of the dolphins. You don’t see them for very long.
These dolphins came up along the side of the boat. It was so amazing. I would love to do a tour again.
The beach on our last day enjoying the sunset. Our trip was amazing. I had a wonderful time and hope I will get to go back. The food we had was also amazing. I got to eat Gulf Shrimp actually from the gulf and lobster. So good.
