My late husband and I had often vacationed on the Florida Gulf Coast. I prefer the calm gulf waters to the ocean side of the southern US. Since his death, I had longed to return to that area for a stay. Occasionally, I even considered going alone.
But things never worked out until recently. My niece and I booked a few days in Panama City Beach. Even with a day (all day!) of rain, I still enjoyed my stay and I'd go back in a minute.
