Seeking a bay fort

West Metro Mommy Reads

I’ve been in Pensacola, the last week, running around like a madwoman, erm, that is, scouting future installments in my Antique Magic series of paranormal fantasy novels. Where was I scouting, you ask?

Yep. I finally got to Fort Pickens–and it was fantastic! So, for this Saturday Snapshot, I’ve got some site-seeing photos to share.

Once you get on the island, there are just miles of these gorgeous sand dunes, and signs everywhere that warn drivers to watch out for nesting seabirds (unfortunately, we didn’t see any though. I guess it was too hot for them). Then the Gulf Islands National Seashore sign, but we’re still seeking out the fort.

Then finally, we come around a corner and see… (eep!) This:

Getting a little excited now! *rubs hands* We must be close. Yes. Once inside we see…

Was that all? Oh, no. But, patience, my friends. I’ll show you more next week! Have a great weekend.

  1. I’ve never heard of Fort Pickens, and never been to Florida. The sand does look nice, white sand is so good, it’s usually finer too.

    1. Don’t feel bad, Louise! It was a find for me a few years ago, and I’ve lived here most my life. It was definitely gorgeous, and you’re right. The sand did feel finer than most. :) Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I enjoyed today’s photos, especially those of the sugar-white sand. They brought back memories of my trips to the Gulf Coast of Texas and Florida. Can’t wait to see more!
