    McKeizie house

    this 1908 dutch colonial house was one of the first structures in panama city. robert lee McKenzie was a real estate developer and the first mayor of panama city. McKenzie was the founder of the gulf coast development company and was instrumental in bringing a railroad to panama city in 1906. the town was named panama city because the railroad would connect "the city of atlanta with the panama canal". McKenzie was a florida legislator from 1909 to 1913 and helped form bay county. a very interesting house to visit when in downtown panama city.

    bay county courthouse

    this historic courthouse was built in 1915 in the classical revival style. it is nationally famous for the trial of clarence gideon. gideon was tried for theft but was not offered a court appointed legal representation. this prompted the united states supreme court in the case of gideon vs. wainwright to mandate court appointed attorneys to provide legal representation for the poor in the united states. for those interested in architecture and history the courthouse is worth a look when in downtown panama city.

    Town Hall, Rosemary Beach
    4 more images

    Rosemary Beach is a beautiful little planned community on the Emerald Coast of Florida, that is the panhandle coast. It sits right on the beach. For many of us, It is not affordable fo have a beach home there, but It is worth the trip to see it, if you are in the panhandle of Florida. As does everything, it does have its critics.

    I wonder how it would hold up if a hurrican such as Ivan hit there.

    Spring Break time

    Panama City beaches are very clean considering all the party freaks running around during spring break. It does get crowded, obviously, during spring break. But, it is a pretty good destination for a family trip at other times of the year.

    Right off the strip headed back toward Panama City, right pass the Walmart is Coconut Creek. It has a human maze, you just got to go thru it. If you think you are so smart, try it and see how long it takes you to go thru it.
    You think oh this is easy, but its not as easy as you think when you a re the so called rat in the maze. It make you use you wits for something other than a hat rack.
