At Fort Walton Beach we were with George's old friends from Edwards Airforce Base in California. Fred & Marion were young marrieds there with Dee & George. Their kids were friends.
Fred & Marion live on an inlet that reminded me so much of the Lively Virginia inlet that George had a house on.
The vegetation was pretty different, most notably the long-needled pines that were everywhere.
With the needles that were as long as my foot!
The morning water was lovely & the sunset skies sublime.
Marion designed her house which is called The Treehaus, as her first family name was Hausman.
There is no way I could do justice to this house which is set under and around a huge magnolia of a kind that is rare in Vancouver.
There are decks and level-changes all over the place, and this wonderful old stain glass window to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Here are Marion & Fred. They were great hosts and good guides.
We had several days there, the election, and a trip to the beach.
What struck me most was how no one was on any of these fabulous beaches. That was so surprising to me. For miles and miles & miles!!
That's it till New Orleans!
