New Years Eve 2013

For New Years Eve 2013, Susan and I rented a room at the Days Inn on Pensacola Beach. We joined four of the other friends at the beach. We ate dinner at Hemmingways.  After dinner we DSC00876went to Capt’n Funs Beach Club to ring in the New Year. We got to Capt’n Funs just in time to see Clemson beat LSU! Go ACC!

The boys celebrated New Years Eve in downtown Pensacola. Brian and Aaron watched the Pelican drop. Shortly after midnight, they joined us at the beach.

The photograph is of Susan and I with our friend Shannon at dinner.

Gulf Coast Half Marathon

On April 10, 2011, I ran in the Gulf Coast Half Marathon. The race was held on Pensacola gulfcoasthalfmarathonBeach. Four of my coworkers ran in the race with me. The weather was far from optimal running conditions. The temperature at the start was about 71 degrees, it was humid and it was foggy. Several people collapsed during the race. I watched one female collapse about mile 11. After the race, I got dizzy and was scared I was going to pass out too. I finished the race in 1:56:29. To the right is a photograph of me and my friends before the race. Check out the fog in the background.

Blue Angel Airshow 2010

On July 10, 2010, we went to another Blue Angel Airshow. This year I enjoyed the airshow blueangels2010more than last year. In 2009, I was not able to get into the water because of the surgery on my foot. This year I could enjoy the airshow from in the water. Once again, we traveled to Santa Rosa Island by boat. We met several of our friends behind Flounder’s Restaurant. Here is a photograph of the Blue Angels passing over the beach.

Blue Angel Airshow 2009

On July 10, 2009, we went to another Blue Angel Airshow. Each year we look forward to the airshow at Pensacola Beach. We went by boat early Saturday morning. We met many of our other blueangels2009friends, who also went to the airshow by boat. Going by boat is much easier than by car. The beach traffic is usually backed up by 7am. Brian’s girlfriend, Brittany, went with us. Our niece, Nicole, also joined us for the airshow. It was her first time at the Blue Angel Airshow. Dan joined us for the airshow for a second year. The previous year was rained out, so this was actually Dan’s first time to see the airshow too. We blew up our water trampoline for the kids to play on. My foot was still wrapped from surgery in June. I could  not get in the water. A funny fact, was that for me to use the bathroom, Susan would have to push me to shore in an intertube. By the end of the day, Susan and I had the trip to shore downpacked. Here is a photograph of the three cousins, Nicole, Brian and Aaron.

Buckcherry Concert

On May 3, 2007, Susan and I saw Buckcherry in concert. The concert was held at Pensacola buckcherryBeach, at Capt’n Funs Beach Club. We went to the concert with several friends. Mike used one of his contacts at Capt’n Funs and had her compact disc signed by the members of the band. The concert was very good. Buckcherry sounded good live. Here is a photograph of Mike and Susan backstage with Buckcherry playing in the background.
