On July 4th, 2008, we did something a little different. In previous years, we drove downtown to watch the fireworks. Since this was our first year with a boat, we decided to take the boat to the beach to watch the fireworks.
Normally we go downtown and watch the fireworks over Pensacola Bay. This year, we took the boat to Pensacola Beach and watched the fireworks over Santa Rosa Sound. First, we went to Sand Island and threw the Frisbee for awhile. Our friends, Brandon and Dee joined us. Sand Island can only be accessed by boat. After the stop at Sand Island, we went to Pensacola Beach, behind Flounders Restaurant, and docked. We stayed the evening there until after the fireworks. We had a nice time. The fireworks on the bay are better, but not as easy to view from a boat. We were able to see the Pensacola Bay fireworks in the distance.
