I had a crazy idea this summer when I found $59 round-trip flights to Florida. It was probably stupid — I only had from 10am-6am in Pensacola…yes, that’s less than 24 hours. But it was easy to talk myself into an impulsive purchase and mini-getaway.
I had ambitious plans that involved water sports on the emerald coast, visiting the naval aviation museum, heading over into Alabama (just because I could), and sampling lots of delicious seafood before mingling with some locals that night.
Coastal Alabama may not be the first place to jump into your mind when you think about dolphins, but there are actually quite a few resident dolphins in these bays. With the sun shining, being on the water (whether or not I saw dolphins) sounded like a great way to spend some time.
The clouds – and breeze – rolled in around sunset, giving me a perfect excuse to go out for the evening.
