  1. Kinda makes ya homesick doesn't it? I've never been to Pensacola but you had me at "sugary white sands." Sigh...

  2. Oh Louie...been thinking about you and your foot!!! hope recovery is going well..
    I'm going right now to dig into my image stash and find the pic of the house we went to every summer of my life in Pensacola. That was our family vacation and I have such wonderful memories of those days.....sigh....memories of my life and imagination!!

  3. So lucky it's only an hour away.

    Wish you were here.


  4. As a kid growing up in Miami, I never realized how beautiful the ocean was...just that it was everywhere. I sure miss it in Colorado. Oh n' the miss that!

  5. I was born in Florida many Miami moons ago!!
    I visited Pensacola when I was a girl and I have never forgotten the beautiful sand and sea.
    Maybe....someday....I will see it again
    and bring my husband with me.

    Thanks for the memories,


  6. Don't forget the graffiti bridge! One of my favorites because I know when I go under it, I'm almost to my sister's house! :)

  7. Ahhh, this caught my eye and made me homesick. My dad was stationed in Pensacola in the 40s ... he and my mom made life-long friends ... helped them build a beach house in Gulf Breeze (when it seemed like in the middle of nowhere) and we had total run of the place whenever we wanted ... I spent some wonderful years there, and on the beach and have loving memories. Thank you for sharing ~~~ I could love a breakfast from The Coffee Cup about right now!! :-) or lunch from The Hopkins' House (sadly no longer available)

  8. Thanks for the tour!! Love FL..., and hope to one day call it my home, at least part time.


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...
