Found plenty of sand dollars and saw the bubbles from clams. Excellent for walking, a bit windy, but comfortable. Only one jellyfish, which was on the beach. Too chilly for swimming, but I shelled and got a tan

For those that want away from the crowds on the Boardwalk drive out to the dunes! Take your camera and sunscreen.

I always appreciate a stretch of land/shore that has not been bulldozed or built upon. We had the place to ourselves practically even though it was Spring break and the beaches were packed with people less than a mile away. It cost 8 bucks per CAR LOAD. Fort Pickens is there to explore. Lots of good places to take pics of the family! Good place to move your body and enjoy the natural beauty without the view of condos and skyrise hotels. Park closes at sunset. Your pass last for several days.

We live in Navarre and have no problem taking the long way home from Pensacola Beach. The views are pristine. The roads were washed out by several hurricanes to include Ivan and Dennis, but it eventually reopened. Heaven on earth!!

Again nice to see the undisturbed nature! Pretty drive towards Navarra Beach but speed limit is 35 mph so be prepared for a slow trip.
