One great thing about the area is that our friend Karin lives here. We let her know we'd be and town and went out to dinner at Lulu's Restaurant (Lulu is Jimmy Buffet's sister)
But it was great to see Karin again and we scheduled a 'Habitat for Karin'. Basically, she needed a some more hands to mount a TV brace on a wall on the back porch
On another day, we went out to the Eglin AFB Golf Course and played 18 holes.
We had a lot of fun and it continues to be a very nice golf course. Like most rounds of golf, there were a few good shots but nothing like days of old...
While here in the FWB area, we found a new fish market. We stopped one afternoon to get a pound of shrimp and cooked them on the grill.
We cooked out on the grill that night. The shrimp was good and it was fresh!
One of the sunny afternoons last week, Pam pulled out the sewing machine and set up shop in her outdoor 'sewing room'.
This area is a special place for us because we met and were married here. We had some extra time so we drove by our first home and looked around. Our apartment was on the second story and the second window from the left end.
Yesterday we dropped the car off at the Miracle Strip Body Shop and got picked up in an Enterprise van to get a car.
It's not the 33 Dinner (my all time favorite in Maynardville TN), but it's got the basics
Later we drove out to the Army's Fort Benning Rec Area in Destin and checked things out with a little drive through. It continues to get attention with demo and rehab to one of their guest buildings. It's one of the nicest military vacation stays in the area. With suites and dorms and an RV campground on the same property, they use every square inch, but it is still a great spot to stay. We've stayed there three times.
That's a brief rundown of some of the things we've been doing during our stay in the area.
Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
