Here is my hicktown's skyline. It's not a metropolitan area by any stretch of the imagination but it's my town and I love it--although this view is approximately four miles from my house.
Here's one of the buildings at our sweet new park. It's got functioning bathrooms which is a step above the park next door. Those bathrooms have been out of order since Hurricane Ivan. I think they have portopotties set up at that beach but I'm not sure.
Look at this. It's March 18th. Do you see that Carribean like water? Can you feel the soft sugar white sands between your toes? Come on Kim.....close your eyes, feel the breeze, the warm sun.
Look at that water, and a fishing boat is out there. On a Wednesday! In March!
Here's a random shot at another beach up the highway. I almost didn't get a parking space. It was the crowded but mostly with locals.
And look, this is the view from this beach looking down towards the condos. See all that beach? See how white it is and clean and gorgeous?
So Kim come on down. I should mention that there's really no culture down here. But there is a quilt guild and an EGA Chapter. There's Needle Delights in Pensacola. Ft Walton Beach and Destin both have yarn shops. There's a very, very small quilting shop in Ft. Walton Beach, and the Cotton Loft in Destin is a quilt shop.
Speaking of Kim-she's having a pretty sweet giveaway on her blog, check it out here.
