Pensacola March 2008

Easter weekend we went to Pensacola to visit Brian Leonard.   This is his last weekend in FL, so I though it would be nice to see him before he goes to North Carolina.  We spent Saturday afternoon with him.  Brian took us to his favorite restaurant, Crabs, right on the beach in Pensacola.  Very good place, great food and playground for the kids.  Then we went to our hotel, in Alabama, walked the beach, kids went swimming and the Brian got his haircut.  Then it was dinner time and then we had to return Brian to base.

Sunday we went to the Gulf Coast Zoo.  I found this while taking Brian for his haircut the day before.  If I had known it was there, we would have gone with Brian and actually did something him.  This is a small zoo, that was featured on Animal Planet.  After they were destroyed by the hurricanes a couple years ago.

Then it was off the Naval Museum to look at planes and time to head home.
