Fueled for adventure with crepes and coffee, I prepared to set up near the shore, when Kay pointed to a path leading to the "Bluffs". So with only camera in hand I made my first expedition, then when I saw the view, knew I'd have to make the hike again with my gear. Most of Pensacola is just a notch above sea level, so I didn't know such a place existed here. Now if you had mentioned "the Cliffs" in my hometown in KY, it was understood you'd been out on the lake engaging in feats of bravery...jumping, flipping or diving.
Vada must have thought I never was coming off the "mountain top" to take her home. Note to self... return to this location in a few months when it's blazing hot...check out the rope swing! (Update- The Bluffs SOLD from Merrill Miller's Interiors, Orange Beach, AL.)
