    Lots of spring breakers last week and probably for the next couple of weeks in Mexico Beach.
    They have had PERFECT WEATHER!!! Cooling down at night to mid 60’s…warming up to high 70’s low 80’s. Absolutely gorgeous!

    Water temp is a little too chilly for me (high 60’s low 70’s) but there were quite a few people who didn’t mind at all!!!

    It’s always fun to see all the golf carts, runners, walkers, people working in their yards, just milling about the beach area!!! Not that we had any kind of winter at all this year….but its just so nice to see everybody enjoying getting out and about when spring springs!!!!

    Mexico Beach Spring 2012

    Fifteen residential properties have been put under contract since March 1!!! Its been BUSY!
    Inventory is dwindling, multiple offers on properties, some going above the list price!

    AND ITS ONLY MARCH!!!

    I finally got to work in my yard yesterday…..it was glorious!!!! Mowed the grass, trimmed the palms, got all the dead wintery stuff out, planted flowers, put down fresh mulch……….I love working in the yard!!!! Didn’t get it all done so hopefully will get another chance some time this week!!!

    Chip has been busy booking fishing trips….he’s on his first one today! Spanish mackeral are out and about + cobia are starting to show up!

    He is headed to Washington DC for the fisherman’s rally tomorrow. He and the other fisherman in the area have been extremely dedicated in trying to fight all these unnecessary regulations on the fishing industry!!!

    They’ve given us 40 days to fish for Snapper this year! Don’t ask me why!!!! There’s enough snapper out there for everybody to fish 365 days!!!! Fisherman who make their living fishing are the environmentalists……they don’t want to overfish….that would be shooting themselves in the foot. This over regulation has hurt all industries associated with fishing….the boating industry, tourist industry, even just the vacationer who wants to try and catch a fish on their vacation!!!

    Another example of over reach by our government!
    Okay………I’m getting off my soap box now.

    I pray everyone has a fantastic week!!!
