Here our children listen as their father reads the Christmas Story. This was many years ago (see the Star Wars cover on the bed), but the emotion is the same. Share stories with your own children.
|Welcome to the St. Andrew Bay Yacht Club in Panama City (above, the dining room is decorated for Valentines).
My parents bought a cottage out on Panama City Beach for $20,000 in 1962. We spent summers and weekends there. Dothan is only 83 miles from Panama City. The cottage got rebuilt twice after hurricanes and then Mother and Daddy got old and gave my sister, brother and me the cottage. In 2004 we sold the cottage and all of us invested elsewhere.
My husband and I came to Panama City finding us a perfect place for later retirement on the water with a dock in the Cove of Panama City. We joined the St. Andrew Bay Yacht Club and found a home away from home. This year I am the Vice President of the Ladies Auxilliary where we meet every Thursday for lunch and a speaker. I also enjoy playing competitive bridge with other ladies.
Now that my husband is totally retired, I have become more active. Next year I will be President of the Auxilliary. I am honored.
Faith, Family, Freedom
a song of the South.
My heart beats in unison
with its people,
my soul is soothed
by the sighs of the wind
as it drifts through the needles
of the arrow straight pines standing sentinal against the back drop
of a cerulean sky.
