September 12, 2013-This morning we prepared to receive our new house guests! Kate’s father and two of her sisters drove down from St. Louis to come visit with us for a long weekend.
Incidentally, this is a view of Front Beach Parkway, the main road that runs along the coast of Panama City Beach, FL.
Finally, a shot of the front of the townhouse; our unit is the 2nd from the right
Kate’s family arrived in the early evening and after taking a quick peek at the ocean, we unloaded the car.
We ate our first dinner together on the deck…
…before the ladies took a walk along the ocean while the sun set.
During the evening Benjamin and Noah walked along the beach with flashlights to find white crabs. (known as crabbing?)
There are a lot of crabs on the beach at night, but most of them are smaller than a quarter. However, tonight Ben and Noah tried to catch only the big ones.
