Blue Angels Practice

This morning we decided to go to Blue Angels practice! But I think so did everyone on the Gulf Coast because the traffic getting in the gate at the Pensacola Naval Air Station took forever. We got there much later than than I wanted or anticipated we would. Wednesday practices are probably more popular also due to the fact that after the practice the pilots come to the Museum and sign autographs!

It is so awesome to watch this and of course the sound is WAY loud!! But what they do is amazing!!! These are not the greatest shots because we didn't get there early enough so there are lots of people doing the same thing....videoing the practices!! It's still amazing and cool to watch even with my 'not so great videos', but they are my record of being there and enjoying and respecting the job that our servicemen do!!
 

 
 I will be returning to watch this again!! And will spend more time at the National Aviation Museum. I will also watch the iMax movie!
If you ever in the Gulf Coast area near Pensacola you should take some time to go and watch. They post the practice schedule online for your convenience! 
Cool way to spend the morning!!!

Relaxing in the Sun

Well I'm on Spring Break and definitely needed a break! I have been attending Real Estate school and reading and studying most of the time trying to remember all the terminology and concepts. 
Today was a gorgeous beach day and thoroughly enjoyed hanging out and relaxing. 
Here is my view today......
 
And yes there was nasty seaweed that had washed up, but it doesn't bother me!

 
So as I was out there today, one of the parasailing boats came down our way, which is a bit unusual, but they also dropped the riders to dangle feet in water and then back up again!

 
And there they go off again!!!
All in all another relaxing day.....but need to do some studying.....so how do you figure that LTV again???
