Check out Playa Del Rio (http://www.playadelrio.com/) or Perdido Key (www.visitflorida.com/Perdido_Key) to see where we are...
As we drove on the Beach boulevard today we say six fishing boats of various sizes out on the gulf close to shore fishing so I am sure that Richard and I will head out with his tall poles later today when it warms up. Perhaps another Pompano day!

The weather here on the Panhandle's Gulf coast beach is partly cloudy and 55 F (13 C) this morning.
Merry Christmas everyone!

In the evening as we sat down to supper the squall line was moving towards us...the winds were very high but the Airstream is built for winds and they just seem to roll past us without shaking the trailer...Friends with fifth wheels said they were "rocked" by the high winds...We are located on the little strip of land at the bottom (just a little right of the centre of the screen shot).

Richard and I went to the Beach Christmas eve morning after the rain subsided...There is call for Tornados near Mobile later in the day which is not too far from where we are here at the beach. We are experiencing high winds, rain and very grey dark overcast skies!

The recipe in the book is not for a crock pot so that is my experiment! I haven't made the roux yet and that is a hard part from what I gather ...getting it just the right colour of brown...that I will do in my fry pan later on when the other ingredients are crock potted to perfection (I hope :-)!
