A bit of Rest and Relaxation
St George Island and Panama City Beach

I love this photo. I snapped it while following Doug to St George Island. We took vacation time recently and spent 3 days at the shore. I drove the Subaru, accompanied by Aja, while Doug rode the trike. It's always nice riding near the water.

Aja was exhausted after such a long day. It was a long ride, she didn't get to sleep, she was in a strange place and probably a bit concerned. So you can see, she cuddled up with her Daddy and tried to sleep.

We didn't want to leave Aja after such a long day so we planned ahead for dinner. We prepared scallops for dinner, stayed in the rental and tried to watch some baseball.

Walking around the next day Aja spied a sand crab scuttling about in the grass.

No good can come of this!

Later we walked on the beach. Not for long.

We wandered around Apalachicola for a bit. There was an entire wall covered with graffiti so I needed a photo of that.

Another day we rode to Panama City Beach and visited the Harley Davidson dealership.
I spent too much money. The good news is, everything I bought was on sale or clearance but still....I went a wee bit overboard :-)

We found a fairly inexpensive place to eat at PC Beach. Grilled fish tacos with some great black beans and rice.

This was at Pier Park in Panama City Beach. It was a bit too touristy for us, reminded me of a Gaitlinburg version along the shore. It was actually hard to find a local place to eat. So many chain restaurants. But the fish tacos were excellent.

Time to head back so we are in time for Aja's dinner. I leaned over the side to get this shot!

It's a long bridge. A shadow shot always appeals to me. I love riding on this trike, it's sooooo much fun.

Ok, she's ready to go home.

It was, Velva, very relaxing. And needed.

Thank you, Vicki, it was fun. I sure wish we'd get some cooler weather for trips!

Wow---love traveling along with you. Great pics. Poor Aja looks so forelorn in some of the shots.
