Fort McRee, Anchorage

It's Sunday. And it's Sunday with nice weather after 2 days of crappy weather. Oh, yeah, but boaters were out in force!

The morning started overcast as the storms continued to clear out. We weighed anchor early, around 6:45 am, since we had a bit of a detour to Two Georges for fuel and a pump out. We arrived there at 7:45, 15 minutes before they opened. Next time we're in this area I would happily stop or anchor here. Easy dinghy access with a very convenient dog walking area. Lizzie was pleased.

We had one nice sunset in Destin
Destin would be great if we didn't have a dog. The harbor is stuffed with touristy things, like boat and jet ski rentals, fishing boats for hire, and dolphin tours. As a result they are very strict about speed, so you don't get rocked (unless there are 80 mph winds). But that means all those piers are for commercial use, so not much space for pulling up a transient dinghy and walking a dog.

The last of the storms rolled through while at Two Georges. We were able to get underway by 10 am.

McRee -- lots of little boats on the shores.
The clouds parted, the sun shined, the air warmed, and right around Pensacola Beach, the boats came out. Nutsville.

We got to the anchorage without issue. Our timing was great. When we dropped anchor there were only 3 boats on the hook for the night. As I type this, there are now 8.
