Stormy Seas

Painting again at Panama City Beach Florida. The remnants of Hurricane Ida was still kicking up the surf and raining off and on. Between the wind and the cold rain it was quite a challenge, but in the end well worth it and lots of fun.

Camp Helen

Painting at Camp Helen.
Went painting again with Martin. We ended up at Camp Helen, located on the Gulf Coast at the west end of Panama City Beach. Beautiful little state park, followed by a 16 mile forced march through soft sugar white sand up and down dunes that reached heights of 300 ft( ok maybe 30 ft). After all that marching we were still maybe half way to the water. At this point I faked a cramp (something I learned from my girlfriend Carrie) and told Martin I wouldn't be able to go any farther. He grumbled a few words as I caught him thanking God. He then removed a flowered sun dress from his bag. A tradition we have had since the early days of painting. Whoever whines has to wear the dress.. My turn,,,sigh. Had a great time painting and finished the day off with a stop at Five Guys Burgers at Pier Park.

Deep South

Had a great day out painting with my friend Martin. We ended up at the new shrimp boat restaurant again. Lots of nice views from their Marina. This old shrimp boat called Deep South was sporting a huge banner saying fresh shrimp. I was going to name this painting fresh shrimp but... Martin said he was going to name his painting fresh shrimp. I considered calling this one Fresher shrimp than Martins... but in the end I decided on Deep South.
