Darren and I headed to Pensacola for a long weekend. It was the perfect weekend because we got to be on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico to celebrate Darren's 30th birthday. We took off on Thursday night and headed south from Atlanta through Montgomery, Alabama. It was our first time being in Alabama, so it was a fun thing to cross off our Bucketlist. We were so glad when we woke up Friday morning and were at the beautiful beach. Although it was very windy, the white sand beaches were amazing to behold. We also headed west on Pensacola Beach Island to visit Fort Pickens, which is an old United States military fort. After the fort we settled into our hotel on the beach and headed out for a romantic dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.
We enjoyed long walks on the beach.
Felt so good to have the sand between our toes.
