COOP’S FIRST BEACH TRIP – PANAMA CITY BEACH, FL

Ahh, vacation is over.  That was fast.

At the very last minute, (I’m talking booked a condo at 5pm, packed, got ready, left the house at 8pm) we (Mac, Cooper, and myself) decided to go to Florida.  Destination: Panama City Beach.

We drove around 5 hours that night.  We stopped at around 5 exits before Birmingham, Alabama to find a hotel for the night, but no such luck!  We ended up driving 25 miles past Birmingham before we found a hotel.  There was some type of ball tournament in the area that had hotels BOOKED.  We finally laid our heads down around 2am in Alabaster, AL.

Next morning, we hopped up outta bed and headed straight for the Waffle House.  We don’t travel without at least one stop at the Waffle House.  Walmart was our next stop and then back on I-65 towards Florida.

We arrived around 2:30pm! WOOHOO!  At our home away from home. Thanks to Joe at Panhandle Getaways for giving us a good deal!

Our 4 nights and 5 days at the beach were pretty awesome!  The morning we were to head home, it was storming, but other than that the weather was perfect.

Cooper loved riding on the golf cart down the streets of PCB!

All of the food was amazing!  We ate at Harpoon Harry’s, Pineapple Willy’s, Another Broken Egg Café, Whataburger, Waffle House…. and lots of ham sandwiches!

Cooper squalled a lot of the way there and back, but nothing we couldn’t handle 😉  Our DVD player died 70 miles before we got to Panama, so that was one of the first purchases on our list.
