Favorite Lunch

Hi Y’all!  It’s summertime and our guests are arriving.  I want to share a hidden lunch or dinner treasure with you.  This is so convenient to Shores of Panama.

Your Vacation is Waiting
Your Vacation is Waiting

My lunch and sometimes dinner favorite is a hidden treasure right across the street -just walk through the back road behind Waffle House and cross the street.  4 minutes max is Dee’s Hangout.

It’s some of the absolute best food on the beach-bar none.  Don’t be fooled by lack of cars or signage in parking lot (everyone walks)!  They have reasonable daily lunch specials and you can call ahead for take-out, if you want to enjoy food at the pool or even beach.  Don’t miss my favorite “grilled fish tacos” and their smoked tuna dip! And check out their happy hour prices!

Have a great beach weekend!

Panama City Beach Vacation, Vacations

Had a Recent Blast

We recently took a family vacation down to the beach, and had an absolute blast! The weather was perfect – just like the pool at Shores of Panama. We laughed so hard, we all felt like we had done stomach crunches for a week.

If you are coming down soon, please don’t miss the free concerts at Pineapple Willies, just next door. We especially loved Jacob Brock and Brews Band. They are the best cover band I’ve ever seen.

Gotta Run – come stay with us @ Shores in PCB! We would love to have you vacation at one of our condos. You’ll have a great time!

Hey from Florida! Gotta Run – Hope no one is offended by my hubbies, T-Shirt.

Our Happy New Year at Shores of Panama

Kelly & Tim
Being from cold Kansas City, we always rush down to Shores for our holidays, as soon as Christmas is over. This year was no different. The weather was fantastic! We usually don’t do a whole lot, except spring cleaning on our 4 condos at Shores, watch football, eat seafood, walks on the beach, and enjoy the ocean-side hot-tub.

For the two weeks we were here, we got alot done! I changed out all my comforters, shower curtains, linens, towels,etc. My hubby did all the man stuff: put new shelving in unit 1707, so our guests could have more storage space. We have lots of amenities in our storage closet, for our guests to use at no charge. We have lawn chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, beach towels, boogie boards, & more. Many of our guests have left “beach stuff” to pay it forward and not have to take it home. We just ask that you take care of it, as if it were your own!

We also, hired Carpet One, a fabulous local carpet company in Panama City, to install new carpeting and tile in Unit 1707. Next year, we will do the studios and Unit 1709. They did an awesome job! If you ever need any flooring in Panama City Beach, please call Carpet One owner, John Shepard – they are a great local flooring company, and stand behind their products.

We spent a quite New Years night, and could barely stay up for the stroke of midnight, but next year – we decided we would go to Pier Park, for the big beach ball drop. We watched so much football at home and at our favorite hang-out, just next door, Pineapple Willies. College Football is the best – we love it! Anyway, we got some fabulous pictures of the gulf of mexico, the pool and some great sunset pictures! It was really hard to leave our beautiful condos at the beach. But it was time for us to get back to Kansas City, to work! Until next time, we’ll be dreaming of the beach, and I’ll leave you with a few of the fabulous pictures we took, while there.

I love this one!

If you like this post, please subsribe – I’ll keep you posted on Shores of Panama! Or you can follow us on twitter at
And as, I’m finishing this post, my husband is outside shoveling the snow, and we are to get about 8-10 inches of snow here in Kansas City, tonight. I guess now you know why I decided to write a post about the beach? I’m dreaming of it! Happy New Year to All! I hope 2011 is a blessed year for us all!

Our family vacation

We took our family vacation at the beginning of September and wow, was the weather great! And the water, honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever seen it so beautiful! (Even though I do think I say that every year, lol)

Anyway, some how, I didn’t get many pics this year – bummer! But I did get a few. The main thing is to have fun, and that we did. Why does the week go by so fast when you are on vacation?

Gulf Balcony View
Things we did:
One night, we watched the sun go down at Schooners and my husband could not wait to get his hands around a fresh grouper sandwich at Schooners. Boatyard was another great dining experience we had; although the waitress did not seem very interested in working that night, lol. Let’s see, there was 9 of us, so we did eat in alot – but that’s the beauty of being in a condo while on vacation vs. a hotel room. We stocked up on groceries at the beginning of the week, and did alot of cooking.

Shores of Panama is looking great, and the pool and landscaping, was just the best! Thanks Shores of Panama, and Panama City Beach for delivering a great vacation and wonderful memories.


It’s Time for the Snowbirds!

Palm Tree With Snow
Hi there Snowbirds! This picture is something you won’t see when you come visit the world’s most beautiful beaches in Panama City Beach Florida! I actually took this picture outside my deck in Kansas City this spring, when we had already moved all the plants out and I thought it was safe to do so! haha!

Are you ready to come to the warm weather? We have 4 beautiful condos at Shores of Panama, and since there was not oil that hit our beach, it’s just as beautiful as ever here! Also, our resort puts on plenty of fun activities in the winter time. Or if you just want to relax on the balcony and look at our beautiful pool and watch the waves come in, you can do that too.

My monthly rates are very affordable, and our condos are very clean and furnished beautifully. We’d love to have you for the winter, so what are you waiting for? All of our beds are sealy posterpedic pillow top, and we’ve had many people tell us that sleeping in our condos is the best night sleep they have had in a long time!

Fall Specials
