Frisky day on Choctawhatchee Bay

Day 205 … Sat, Nov 11, 2017 … 31.1 miles … 4:15 hours

Ft Walton Beach, Fl to Choctawhatchee Bay, Fl

Happy Birthday, Liz Finkle!! We called to wish you a happy birthday, but you had company. Too busy to talk!! We’ll try you again later tonight.

Couple pics from sunset last night at Ft Walton Beach …


As the captain said … “it’s quite frisky out here, today”. You guessed it the weatherman was wrong about the wind. We were on a larger body of water for most of the day, the Choctawhatchee Bay, but the boat handled it well and we were comfortable.


You know it is too breezy when the kite boarders are out in full force.


Not much scenery today … but, a much better distance from passing tows!!


Our anchorage tonight is at the east end of Choctawhatchee Bay, but still in the bay and near the channel tomorrow to head further east to Panama City for 2 days. We are out of the marked channel and safe.


Cally’s shore dooty tonight is at a boat ramp up a creek with a couple piers. Very popular with fisherman to put in their boats, kids fishing from the pier and locals out for a stroll.
