I saw something interesting while we were there. My kids and I were in the pool at Navarre Towers (several weeks ago) and I happened to look up. Between Bel Mer (sp?) and our building were probably several hundred birds gliding in circles. They looked and sounded like common house sparrows but I hav...

We were there during the week of July 16th. We bought our snorkel gear at Costco last year. I cannot use the tube to breathe under water but my husband and son have no problem. I still used my mask and watched the fish nibble at my legs and feet as I used my shell net (from wally world) and had a gr...

Sad to say we only have two days left here in Navarre. We will be leaving around 4am Saturday morning. I hope you have a safe trip and a great vacation! We will treasure our remaining time here.

I went with Batteries Plus in Fort Walton Beach. They were closer. Since we were going to the Pensacola Aviation Museum on Tuesday I didn't want to drive that way twice. I know the camera shops would have had a better quality battery. Now when I go anywhere I will have three batteries. Not as good a...

I can now breath a sigh of relief. I have two batteries, both fully charged and ready to go.

Thanks again to everyone that had ideas for me. I can guarantee I will never forget to bring my camera battery again. That will be the first thing I check.

Hey AngelGirl, thanks again for the avatar!

I'm still kicking myself for leaving my fully recharged camera battery somewhere in my house. :shock:

Thanks for the info. I will be on a quest tomorrow. I think I will take Kenny's advice and get multiple batteries. I always back up my photos (having lost precious ones to a hard drive crash) in different places but the battery issue will be something I will never repeat. Advice: Don't pack for vaca...

Bad behavior at the pier (in my opinion)

Our family went to the pier this morning to fish. I walked with my son to the end of the pier but what I saw there appalled me. Is it common practice to keep the small fish you catch and let them die on the planks behind you? They are not being used for bait. They were just discarded to rot in the s...

Last night my son and I took our new LED flashlights and checked out the beach. We saw several crabs, one of which I managed to snag with my shell net until it escaped and ran across my foot. I don't know who got freaked out more - me or the crab.

Desperate need for camera battery!!!

Good afterternoon everyone!! I am having a huge problem. We are now in Navarre and I forgot to pack my camera battery. I have a Nikon D40x and the battery is an EN EL 9. I have called Best Buy in Pensacola and Destin - No battery. I have called the Walmart stores - "We don't carry camera batteries"....

Thank you Pensacolakid! Last time we were down in Navarre I only saw the sound from a distance. I told my family that next time (this Saturday!!!) we are going to see it up close. I can't take pictures in the dark (not skilled with my camera) but I know I'll get some good ones during daylight. If th...

What is the best place to access the sound? How is the bug situation over there at night? My kids get freaked out by them. I want to go but need to prepare the scaredy cats.

Flashlights

Somewhere in the forum I thought I read something about no flashlights on the beach (turtles??). I wanted to go out after dark with a flashlight to see if anything was washing up (shells) but I won't if it will mess with the turtles.

Is that true?

Hey Bayou Berl! This will be our second visit to Navarre and we can't wait! We, too, are staying at Navarre Towers. About 4 or 5 years ago, I began my search for the perfect beach destination. One thing led to another when I found Navarre. After I read up on the beach, I found this forum. Two years ...
