|At Navarre Beach|
Two years ago, we were in the area on a week they should have flown but they had no funding. So this time around, I booked a hotel in Pensacola to make darn sure we saw finally saw them! The joke was on me though, they start at 11:30 not 8am, so we didn't really need to stay overnight! I am glad we did though.

|This fishermen have very choice words for these gorgeous creatures, |
they can take a fish off a hook and not hurt themselves!
|This one got away but he was close to catching a little snack!|
|They move so fast it is difficult to catch when|
they come up for air!
|Fishing - what most people do on the pier!|
|It is not everyday you get a Sea Turtle at the pier!|
|Leaving the pier for the day|
|Avocado omelette with 2 pancakes!|
Tearing ourselves away from the pier, we stopped at our favourite IHOP (International House of Pancakes) for breakfast. This one is the traditional IHOP our family always uses and I love the continuity of being there.

We stayed at the Days Inn on Palafox Street but it really wasn't within walking distance of anything, so we drove to the original McGuire's restaurant for dinner.
Then, before retiring for the night, we went in search of a sunset.
