Coming home


Today is the first day I've been able to drive and you can't imagine how excited I was. This afternoon I drove almost to Park East to get photos of the surf. Suddenly, in the distance, I spied the Blue Angels!


Many times the Blue Angels fly over the beach on their way back to Pensacola Naval Air Station after a weekend performance. This time they were returning from Jacksonville, Florida.


It's always exciting to see them return, but today it was especially beautiful with the high surf and golden haze.


As they flew west the F/A 18's began to disappear into the sun.


Suddenly, as they neared Portofino, the jets signaled their arrival home with long, glowing contrails. What a remarkable sight.

What a thrill, and in such great formation. Glad to hear you're getting around.
