This will be a very leisurely trip to the beach. Bring your paddle board, kayak, bicycle or other things that you like to do at the beach. If you decide to bring things that you tether to your car , plan to drive. We will drive to Pensacola with one or two stops as needed. We should arrive in time to enjoy the beach before checking in to the campground. Check in is at 1 p.m. There is a dog beach about 3 miles prior to entering the Fort Pickens area. We will bring up to four well-behaved dogs and plan to hang out at the dog beach. There is a beach at the campground. Dogs are allowed at the campground but not at the campground Beach. There are a few trails and some sites to visit at the campground if you would like to do that. Here is some Fort Pickens history. All or some of us can take a trip to Joe Patti's Seafood Market on Saturday morning to purchase Seafood for dinner Saturday night at the campground. There are restaurants approximately 4 miles from the campground. That can be another option. We can hang out at the beach on Sunday until around 1 p.m. Then I guess we should start motoring back North to Atlanta. This will be car camping Style. I will contact everyone by email once we know who is going to coordinate bringing shared items like coolers. I have reserved 4 campsites with two tents allowed per campsite. If you are joining as a couple, let me know. That could free up another Camp spot. Again, this is a very leisurely trip, laid-back time at the beach. The trip will be cancelled if it looks like it will not be a sunny day at the beach. Mahalo
