This is our 3rd year of going to Pensacola Beach, Florida. Here's the video of our 2014 trip. We usually do another trip besides this but this is our lazy trip, we set expectations very low. We'll go to the beach, go to the pool, take a nap, get something to eat. The beaches are great and it's a 6 hour drive from home in Louisiana.
The water was more choppy than what I remember previously. There were not jellyfish to zap us, mustn't be in season. This is the first year that Bodhi can swim entirely on his own. He's a real strong swimmer. When last season ended he wasn't quite there. We got to the pool a lot early this Summer and he picked right back up where he was and quickly got more confidence in swimming.
