Shell Island at Panama City "Operation Dolphin Petting"

Post by gwozhog » 04 Aug 2017, 20:26

Packing it up now for 7 day of sibbing in Florida. Shell Island has one of the largest gathering of Dolphins in the USA hanging out. I have a room booked ocean side beach level condo so hoping to launch right off the beach in front. If not there is a boat ramp only 1 mile away. This will be my first dunk ever in salt water so I'm really out of element. :sos Should be a great trip and it's my first summer vacation in 4 years so that makes it even more special. Pics to follow but first gotta knock out a 700 mile road trip. :drive Hopefully this trip will go off with no stops by the police :busted unlike my Grand Canyon trip back in February. So another adventure begins :yay
I dated a girl once in school and her Father told me I would never amount to anything. He was right!

A quick Google and Shell Island throws up 3 locations :idea:
One of which is in North Wales here in the UK so I'll dismiss that :lol:
That leaves Wrightsville Beach NC or Panama City Beach FL ...... either way they look a lovely location .... warm climate, sandy beaches :mrgreen:
Have a great trip :thumbsup enjoy the salty water (with waves and tides) :sarky looking forward to your photo/video coverage of your latest adventure :thumbsup
Enjoy :yay as you sure as hell deserve it after 4 years mate :o
:cheers
