Monday~I've got the Blues..

The Blue Angels that is...
the U.S.Navy's Flight Demonstration Team..
vacations and life events are planned around Blue Angels week in Pensacola,Florida..
Altho weather prevented a high altitude air show by the Blues, 
as well as cancelled civilian participants due to safety factors..this year was no exception..the show did go on!   What a show it was!
traffic was backed up to a standstill through Gulf Breeze..
Boats of all sizes , shapes and power were anchored so closely one could literally step from boat to boat..
and despite drizzles and downpours, 
beach-goers still  were awestruck when the Blues came roaring over the horizon..

performing breathtaking maneuvers in tight formations just mere 36 inches between  wingtips!
from start to finish, viewers were presented a most outstanding air show!
If you've never experienced an air show by the Blues..put yourself  front row center and see for yourself!

  3. Girlfriend, are you in Florida to stay?????? Sorry the high show got cancelled. Would you believe I've never seen one of their shows?


welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
