We left home at 5am today, headed for Destin, Florida again. Did you know that today is Pi Day! 3.1415 represents the first 5 digits of the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Important to know! And at 9:26:53 am and pm, you get the next five digits.
Our plane landed in Pensacola at about the time that St. Pat’s activities were winding up, including a 5K run sponsored by McGuire’s Irish Pub. Traffic was pretty heavy, and we had to watch for happy folks dressed in green crossing the streets.
We checked into a lovely condo at Seascape Resort in Miramar Beach. Our lanai overlooks a small lake and the resort’s golf course. We are in a two bedroom, two level condo just across the road from the beach. We didn’t know it at the time, but this is spring break for a lot of students, including several in the condo next to ours. So far, they’ve either been gone, or the unit is well soundproofed.
Friends Steve and Joan came out to spend the night. We met at Margaritaville for dinner (I know, pretty touristy, but we had been up for a long time. The food was fine. We headed back to the condo and played a game of Cards Against Humanity, always good for laughs. The youngest member of the group (Steve) won, and the oldest (me) came in second. Mark, who usually wins, excused his play by saying, over and over again, “I’m so tie-errd!!” Should I suggest this as a new Cards card? It could be used in a senior citizen pack.
