We drove way east on Thursday, all the way to Panama City Beach. We drove past many ugly high-rise hotels and arrived at Pier Park, this great big tacky shopping area.

we went into a couple of stores, but there wasn’t so much we were interested in. we did find some cute lake-related thing in one souvenir shop, but that’s it. we walked across the road to the beach, but it wasn’t anything to write home about. here’s the big entrance to the place.

kevin found some of this don francisco coffee at the publix and bought a lot of it, plus other coffees. here’s our beverage display.

i went running on the beach later; i did a whole lot of running there in florida. because how often am i going to be able to run on the beach? not often.

ok then,
