Not sure what this boat is, but it was unusual looking so I took a picture.
Don't know if these were crab traps, or something, but another commercial fishing boat. Oysters are very popular around here, so maybe an oyster boat?
There are lots of places to have a meal and a drink and watch the waves, such as Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville at Pier Park.
Another place was Schooners, who claims to be the last local beach bar in Panama City Beach.
Sitting at our table looking out on the water.
One day we saw these surfers. Double red flags were flying which means no one is supposed to be in the water. But the surfers say this is the only time you get a good wave here on the gulf.
This little sand crab got cornered by some kids and was scared to death. The kids finally let the crab get back to its hole in the sand.
We visited Tootsie's in Nashville, but here it was again at Pier Park. Inside was a live cam of the entertainment going on hundreds of miles away in Nashville.
There are beaches both east and west of Panama City. This is Mexico Beach, east of Panama City.
I just liked this shot.
Mexico Beach is a much quieter, laid back tourist area than Panama City Beach. It had a totally different atmosphere than Panama City Beach. Instead of high rise condos, we found these quaint bed and breakfast style places.
This was a hotel on the beach. It was just a series of small houses which have been converted to condos.
I was fascinated watching these little clams. They would wash up and there would be hundreds laying on the sand. Then as you watched, they would bury themselves in the sand. In seconds you could not even tell they had been there.
