Pensacola is without a doubt the most "tourist friendly" town I've seen. Take the trolley for 25 cents to the Tourist Information Center and you will see what I mean. If they don't have the information you need, they go out of their way to get it. One of the staff members there spent a long time trying to locate a grocery store for us that delivered. The manager even offered us a ride back to the marina when we missed the last trolley.
There are two computer systems set up for retrieving email, plus two phone lines. We used one of the phone lines to plug in the laptop.
|Seville Harbor Marina. This is in a great area - right in
the middle of the Historic District. Lots of interesting exploring can be
done on foot. The trolley is a short walk away; the bus a few blocks away.
The Harbor Master is very helpful. The floating docks actually have finger piers
instead of catwalks. They are well maintained and in great shape. I
wish I could say the same for the showers and laundry. It looked as if they
hadn't been cleaned in months, years, or maybe never.
|Fish House Restaurant. Overlooking the Seville Harbor Marina. A
must when in this area. The best food we've had since leaving Kemah. |
Shrimp is not a favorite of mine and I could never have imagined eating grits, but the Grits 'a Ya Ya is to die for. The grits are flavored with smoked Gouda cheese, topped with a cream sauce that has garlic and spinach (among other things), and surrounded by grilled gulf shrimp. This is a house special and even "don't like southern foods Bob" liked it. The mahi-mahi was also excellent.
