Don't wear black socks and sandals or we'll know where you came from. If it's cloudy you can still get sunburned. Stay away from KFC popcorn chicken. Don't pick up any hitchhikers. Fleeing felons seem to like Florida. Check your tire pressure and all your fluids. We checked eight or ten shops and there was no cheap ammo and most of the Smith's were double what they should have been. Do find a nice seafood restaurant that serves local fresh seafood. Watch out for old drivers like me. Enjoy your trip, it's a very fun place.
Where were you? I spent last week at Perdido about a half mile east from the Flora Bama. Made several trips to Joe Patti's in Pensacola-great lump crab Went to some place called Tacky Jacks. Save your money. Most of the time I stayed on the beach and drank.
