Panama City Beach

I used my Roxio Program to create a scrapbook project. Unfortunately, it was a little limiting for what I was hoping for (more choice in layout, being able to add more journaling).

The first photo page shows two pictures of our overnight stay at Shakertown. As you can see, the accommodations were very modest but the atmosphere was divine!

The second photo page is of Gator Lake in Andrews State Park. We saw a large blue heron but, again, missed the gators. The twisted trees were cool and it is amazing to think that just over the hill was the ocean. Great park - it's a repeater experience.

Lastly, I just had to include a sunset. I tried every night we were there and always missed it. I was glad that on the last night we got down to the beach just in time.
