Blue Week Part I...

 

Oh man. So, I started this blog with the intent of writing on it everyday, but as you can see, I've failed already... In my defense, I have been out camping in the Blue Ridge Mountains (over near Tennesse...) and I am a firm believer that sometimes you just have to let everything go. No internet. No cell phones. No television. Just you and the moment. And that is exactly what I did. And it was glorious!  A  break from societal norms is good for the soul.

 

 

So, Blue Week! Thus far it has been fantastic. We had an excellent time spending the 4th of July in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Moonshine Creek was full of wonderful people and surrounded by the amazing beauty of God's creation. Oh, how I love me some mountains ;)

  

Prior to leaving for Blue Ridge, I met some folks at Five Sisters Blues Cafe. If you haven't stopped by for some of their soul food, you definitely should. The atmosphere is reminiscent of Belmont-DeVilliers during its golden age and the food is delicious! They have a bar that is open until 2:00 am nightly, and live music Thursday-Saturday from 9:00pm-12:00am.

  

 

Once back from the mountains, Nicole and I stopped by Dharma Blue for lunch. This is another fabulous local spot in downtown Pensacola. Blue Week is really just an excuse to go out and dine at all of the local dives...

 

 

This morning was Breakfast and the Blues on Pensacola Beach. I stopped by Bagleheads on Gregory Street, grabbed a cup of tea and my favorite bagle with cream cheese and headed across the Three Mile Bridge. Watching the Blues makes me feel like a little girl. When the jets fly by it reminds me of when I was young, going to the airshows with my family; the noise of the planes and the smell of the fuel. It all just makes me love being from Pensacola! I can't wait for the air show this weekend!!

I hope everyone had a fantastic Fourth of July!!

Oh yeah! Here is the Blue song of the day :

Jack Johnson, F-Stop Blues
