Its another day in paradise…

by agirlandhermutt on September 9, 2010

On my last day in Pensacola, I participated in my most favorite activity ever…spending time with my family!

We started off with the classic breakfast of “sausage” and eggs. My parents served up some soy sausage with maple syrup. My fave! There were also some serious scones involved.

I also snuck in an early morning photo with my Moms. *MUAH!* She=the best!

I decided that for our last day I would take The Scientist out to the beach to play some putt-putt golf. I’m a golfer from way back and used to love this little course on the beach.

We got there and this is what we were greeted with.

Seriously? How embarrassing. The whole course looked like this! The carpet was peeling and the cute waterfall and river that I remembered ended up a little Sahara Desert.

We still had a great time (tied!) and I tried to make it up to him with another frozen delight at Bamboo Willie’s.

I’m pretty sure I enjoyed this little pit stop more than he did. Mmm….delicious frozen drinks!

Our last stop was to downtown Pensacola. We took a little walk past Pensacola Bay.

I could have stayed there all day, but our stomachs were grumbly. We visited Hopjacks. With 64 beers on tap and some yummy pizza, we were all set.

Have you ever had corn on your pizza? I hadn’t either! I’m a fan apparently!

The rest of the afternoon was spent just relaxing in the CENTRAL A/C and laughing with my family. Our final dinner before heading back was at my favorite restaurant, The Fish House. They are known for the gouda grits and I’m known for chowing down on them. ;)

We all got a version of the two dishes below. You stick with what is good, right?

Our meals were OUT OF THIS WORLD. Everything was fresh and tasted so yummy. It was so great to support the Gulf Coast community with some local food eatin’.

We said our good-byes to the sand and sun with some fully bellies and a smile on our mugs.

I have some great memories of Pensacola. I was born in Pcola. I lived there for 18 years. My parents have been there for almost 40 years. It will always be my home and I have some seriously fond memories.

You can take the girl out of the South but you can NEVER take the South out of the THIS girl.

I have never had corn on pizza but I bet it is GOOD. I might have to try that soon… maybe roast some corn and add in some other veggies!? I’ve had corn stuffed with other veggies in quesadillas before and it is DELISH!

Cute, cute pics! Everything, including the beer and pizza, look fantastic.

Considering I’ll eat anything on pizza, I’m pretty sure I’d like corn on it haha. Looks like a wonderful place to grow up!
