Greetings from St. Andrews Marina, Panama City, FL

Tuesday, December 23-



This webcam snapshot shows us alongside the transient dock.  We're about midway in the picture and in the lower half...with lights on in the salon.

We traveled yesterday from Joe's Bayou across the Chocktawhatchee Bay.  It was a little "rolly" for about an hour, but turned into a descent travel day, in spite of the occasional shower.  The weather looks stormy today...and lousy through Christmas Day.  We're hoping Friday might bring an opportunity to move on.

Meanwhile, a photo journey over the past couple of days traveling.


Flurries in the Gulf???  No, just the white Gulf sands...




A look at the weather yesterday morning as we left the Destin area.




Later in the day yesterday when we saw clearing in the distance.




Entering the straight section between Chocktawhatchee Bay and West Bay.




Cutest!! Dolphin playing alongside the boat as we entered the West Bay just outside Panama City...

Historic St. Andrews street scene.




The sailboat, Irish Mist, just down the dock from us.  They won 1st prize in the Parade of Lights here in Panama City a couple of weekends ago.  Last night they took a spin around the bay with lights ablaze and Christmas carols singing out.  They're going to do the same on Christmas Eve.  It's a beautifully done light job!




And...a few "mood shots" from last night in the marina.  We're right across from some commercial fishing vessels.
