Gulf Coast - Pensacola, Florida
June 2008
On Tuesday we drove to Naval Air Station Pensacola to see the Blue Angels practice. I've seen the Blue Angels perform before at Willow Grove, but it's always fun to see them again! We also went to the National Naval Aviation Museum and drove through downtown Pensacola. We went to lunch at Captain Joey Patti's Seafoood Deli. Believe it or not we ate mullet. I know, you're thinking "that's a bait fish!" Well, down there they're huge and it was actually good! On the way back we took a drive through Pensacola Beach.
