The weather has been beautiful, but very hot here on the Gulf. That does not stop us from enjoying outdoor activities.
There is always something going on here in our little piece of paradise:
Where thousands live like millions wish they could!!!
This weekend, Flora-Bama is sponsoring the 2014 Thunder Run Superboat Grand Prix.
The Gulf Coast Powerboat Association has put together the inaugural dual race format.
There are two races, in two cities, in two states – Orange Beach, Alabama and Pensacola, Florida.
Mr Wonderful and I went to downtown Pensacola, where the event was being held for day three of the Flora-Bama Shootout.
These are some of the fastest and biggest power boats in the world.
There are many classes of boats, but the main styles are Vee Bottom Boats and Catamarans.
The air is thick with moisture, making it hard to breath and we are immediately dripping wet. It is the cheapest sauna I have ever been in. LOL
We take our time as we walk through downtown and checking out all the action.
I love boats and I love speed. These amazing power boats put on a performance that had my heart pounding and my body vibrating with the roar of the engines. To watch the rooster tails shoot out of the water as the boats thunder by makes me wonder what it would be like riding along on race day.
Even though it was only practice, they put on a great show.
We wandered through Race Village, able to check out the boats up close and personal.
Music was playing and a good time was had by all.
Mr Wonderful freelances as a producer/director for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos, our minor league baseball team. They delayed the game today, Sunday, due to Thunder on the Gulf. He will be going back to the races, then working the ballgame, so I chose not to go. That’s why I am sitting in my recliner, watching football (yeah, it is finally football season, lol) and blogging to you.
What did you do this weekend?
