On our way there we passed through Mexico Beach which was the little seaside town that was hit so bad by the hurricane last fall. We came through here in late November on our way south and the destruction was very heart wrenching. They have been working away cleaning up for about 3 months since then and there is a long long way to go yet. I can't imagine the amount of money it will take to put this all back together.
We can thank the ancient Romans for the fact that we have covnty covrthouses' instead of `county houses' The alphabet that most of the world uses today was developed by the ancient Romans, except that it did not contain J, U or W as separate letters. "This situation changed in medieval times, when the consonant value of I became its own letter. 3 and V was divided into U, V and W. Hence, ILIVS means Julius, and as you have guessed COVNTY is how the Romans would have spelled county. "This is yet another one of the endless examples of Roman influences on Western language, architecture, law and culture. And to think that some people called Latin a dead language."
Now the ironic thing about all of this was what I saw as I pulled into our park in Panama Beach!! Could it be that we have found a Roman V Resort??? I guess they haven't caught up to this hurricane damage yet because the park is in really great shape otherwise.
We have an awesome little spot surrounded by great shiny expensive rigs. Its kinda like a little experience of the Rich and Famous!!
We went for a big walk on the beach with them and then joined them for supper.
As usual, I missed the supper picture before supper so maybe my new tradition will be of the after meal picture.
Another good day and here is what we see out our window today:
