"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Mar. 24 – Pensacola, FL

Day 18 – Laundry and Blue Water
Palafox Pier & Yacht Harbour Marina
We are here…in Florida and the water is an emerald green.  Very pretty, I don’t think my pictures will actually show what the water looks like.  We had a short day on the water…we only traveled 24 miles and are docked in a marina in downtown Pensacola.   

The first thing on my agenda was laundry.  I sat in a little restaurant that over looks the marina while waiting for the wash.  Not bad…I had a chance to surf the web.  I updated things on the blog, read emails, and uploaded pictures to my picasa account.  When we finished all our work we took a walk through part of the historical section of Pensacola.

The dock master told Stan about a great fish market named Joe Patti's, so we rode our bikes over there to get fish for dinner. WOW what a place, it was huge. They had any kind of seafood you could think of. We bought a redfish fillet, half a pound of shrimp, two crabs and a loaf of fresh bread.  It made a great dinner...enjoying it on our deck in Florida made it even better.
