Are you ready for some good fishing?

Pensacola good then, better now

March is always one of my favorite months. I was born in March. Spring comes in March, daylight lengthens and the sun glows longer and brighter. And I moved to Pensacola in a March — March 1978, to be precise. Say, Uncle Mark, what was Pensacola like in those long-ago days? I’m glad you asked.

Enjoy success with moon phase gardening

By Dr. Robert Randel
There are many marvelous mysteries and the Moon is one that evokes emotions, legends and lore. It is also a valuable gauge for garden planting. The basic principle for planting by the moon is fairly simple. Plant above ground crops when the moon is getting bigger and below ground crops when it is getting smaller.

Disc Crazy

By Melanie Kormondy
Throw away your golf balls and clubs and make room for flying discs. The game of disc golf has soared in popularity, and there are several free courses in this area. Played much like traditional golf, the first shot of each hole, called a drive, is made from the tee area. Every shot after the drive must be made from the spot where the disc previously landed.

What’s in Store?

Every now and then a gift shop will come along that sets a standard for others to look up to. A place that you know you are somewhere special as soon as you step into its doors. A place that is welcoming to the point that you forget you are shopping. Gulf Breeze has had its own place like that for 25 years, and it is the Blue Sky Gift Shoppe.
