There’s still some light seaweed but its in patches which means clear spots come by as well. The surf was very calm bu a strong breeze created a light chop later in the day… not to mention made it challenging to keep the umbrella up! The sweltering heat was also held at bay by the steady breeze today. Despite the calm surf and no undertow the flag still flies yellow. Did they remove green from the flag lexicon and forget to send me a memo?
Well… I had been excited about trying out this Panama City Beach German restaurant at Pier Park for ages. Our neighbors from Atlanta were going to be down for the weekend and since one of them is German we thought what better opportunity. We’ve walked by the place many times and thought it looked really cute inside. The employees are all dressed up in their German get-ups right down to the waitresses with their tight corset thingies (think Swiss Miss girl working at Hooters). …
The muck continues to hang around. The water was calm today but wading out past the seaweed didn’t seem worth it. PS it’s HOT!

The sand is at least clear of the goopy pea soup algae at water’s edge, but the water is a mix of algae and the red/brown plant-like seaweed ( I don’t know what it’s called yet ). The flag is perpetually yellow. It’s so hot!! I’m happy to report that the beach no longer smells of rotting algae…..that’s something!
We may skip the beach and head to Pier Park for some school shopping. Happy Saturday!
