We left our slip at Palafox Marina at 9:20 it was breezy and the temp. had gotten down to 47 early this morning. About an hour later we were passing under the Pensacola Beach Bridge, the ICW here runs between the beach islands and the mainland. It is a pretty stretch cruising along Santa Rosa Island, Navarre Beach and Ft Walton. About 2:30 we entered Chocktawhatchee Bay there is always a lot of pleasure boat and jetski / waverunner traffic here, Destin bridge and harbor are at the mouth of the bay to the Gulf of Mexico. We will be heading northeast up to Rocky Bayou, there is a light chop on the bay.
We arrive at Bluewater Bay Marina and tie up at the dock at 3:30. This is a small marina but in a pretty area. They have a good restaurant and also a courtesy car they loan to boaters staying there for trips to the local stores.
Some of the slips at Bluewater Bay the office and restaurant are in the building behind the boats.
