It is going to be a new Dollar General! It is being developed by Concept Construction and Development, and is the newest Dollar General in Panama City Beach. Concept Construction and Development has also built the Dollar General on 15th Street, 22nd Street and the one in Lynn Haven on Highway 390.

Bayou Shrimp Boat

This is a photo of an authentic and dying part of the Emerald Coast.  Homemade shrimping and oyster boats are all but a thing of the past along the coastal bayous and bays of the panhandle.  During their hayday, you could see dozens of these boats trolling St. Andrews, Port St Joe and Apalach Bays.  Now it is rare to even glimpse a single vessel of this granduer (in my humble opinion).

This shot was taken just off Hwy 30-A on the road to Cape San Blas.  Many of you know 30-A as the road to Seaside to the west of PCB.  I had a “lifetime local” tell me that wasn’t 30-A, but according to the sign and all maps it’s FL Hwy 30-A just east of Port St Joe off of Hwy 98.

Description: This is one of my favorite photos.  The “homemade” shrimp boat was sitting in a quiet bayou near Cape San Blas.  As the sun rose it created a beautiful mirror image of the vessel.  Note the bright red hand-painted boat number.

New Feature – Photos from You

At the request of some of the readers of pcbdaily, we’ve added a new feature that will showcase readers’ photos of Panama City Beach.  Teddy Meeks has been gracious enough to share his nature photography of our area, and this is an opportunity for some others to share their talent as well.

The pictures can be of anything Panama City Beach related, as long as it is PG, of course.  For more information or to submit your photos, visit photos from you.

To kick this off, Lori Duncan has submitted a couple of photos from the west end.

Colorful

Although Hurricane Fay brought some seaweed and ink sea slugs to our beaches, the water really took on some brilliant colors in its aftermath.

After the Storm

Sunsets are always beautiful on the Emerald Coast.  This one was taken from the beach at Pinnacle Port, on the west side of Panama City Beach, a couple of days after Hurricane fay.

If you have photos you want displayed in this feature, click here to submit you photos.

Kissing Pelicans

First off, a big thank you to Jason allowing me access to this forum to showcase my nature photography of Panama City Beach and the surrounding Emerald Coast.    I’ll be bringing you the natural side of PCB with a weekly feature photo.

From the peaceful black water bayous to the sugar white sands, the Emerald Coast is like no other coastline in the world.  Like all cities, Panama City Beach has its faults, but at the end of the day we have beautiful beaches, emerald waters, abundant wildlife and glowing sunsets… what’s not to love!

The first feature photo is titled “Kissing Pelicans”.  I caught these two pelicans “touching” beaks as if kissing just after sunrise on Grand Lagoon, in front of Baypoint.

Feel free to checkout more nature photos of the beach and the area’s wildlife at my photoblog Sand between Your Toes.
