Happy Anniversary to us, Fort Pickens CG, FL, Nov 18, 2011

Today is our 44th wedding anniversary.  After meeting on a blind date, we were married 11 months later.

This morning more beach walking.  We didn’t expect the weather to be so bright today.  The surf was up more today than yesterday.

I love the designs plants make in the sand.  This one reminded me of using the pencil and a string to make a perfect circle.  Guess we learned it from Mother Nature.

There is a small store here at the campground, and yes, you can buy a single piece of Spam.   This photo is for our son, Rich, who eats most foods, but does not like Spam.  At this price of $1.99 for 3 oz., that calculates out to $10.61 per pound. Hummmm.

Not all the campsites here at the park are long enough for us to use.

This afternoon we drove about 3 miles away and visited Fort Pickens.  Even though it was in the heart of the Confederacy during the Civil War, it remained under the control of the Union Army.

Our timing was perfect as we were able to attend a tour of the fort.

This long legged bird was quite willing to pose for us on the sea wall.

Were also able to obtain two more National Park Passport stamps at the Visitor Center.
