2nd day in Pensacola
Monday 3/28 , we pull up anchor and the white sand just falls right off the anchor, NO need for the wash down pump :). Out from the cove & up the Bay to the town of Pensacola, we knew we could not get under the bridge to Pensacola Beach and the 2 marina's before the bridge looked depth challenging so we came into the town Palafox marina. We were a little worried about the strong north wind & how that would affect docking at the marina but once closer to land it cut the wind a little and it actually helped push us up to the bulkhead, just hope the light wind prediction for tomorrow is correct so we can get off the bulkhead as I am sure some TMCA folks can relate to. Not much to the "downtown" area of Pensacola but we went for a long walk through town and had a nice lunch than back to the boat to wash the salt spray off and do laundry from our clothes we had on for the 3 day cruise over. Than another long walk back out for dinner. Tomorrow we are heading for Destin. Hope to soon learn how to put pictures in with the blog I am writing instead of doing them on a separte blog.
