Fort Pickens. Surrounded by water.
Pensacola Beach. That's the water tower top
center. The boardwalk is missing its planks.
Pensacola Beach again.
More Pensacola Beach
The Church in Pensacola. At least I think that's the
I think that this is Pensacola as well.
Pensacola Beach? I'm not sure.
I'm not sure where this is.
The house at the left is the McCollough house. I'm never
sure how to spell that. The house with the silver roof is 7713 Gulf Blvd.
on Navarre Beach. You can see that the phone poles are down, and Gulf Blvd
is either washed away or buried. I suspect washed away. There is
about two feet of sand missing, as is obvious from looking at the bottom of the
McCollough house. The house next to 7713 is the Fahey house. The
siding is mostly gone and the roof is gone in places down to the plywood, but it
is intact. The four-plex next to that is the Seagull I believe. It
survived Opal with a little less damage than this, IIRC.
Fahey's siding is definitely gone, but his windows look pretty
Flying over. No dunes... Windows still look
good. Seagull 2, I think, is visible in the bottom right.
Here is another shot of the same houses. The house at
the top is 7713 - the Kent's place. You can see that the stairways are
gone, and about two feet of sand is missing. The concrete driveway
underneath is gone. The beach is gone, and the water is about 15 feet from
the front of the house. The Fahey place lost siding and shingles, but the
decks are still there. The same goes for the four-plex next door.
The metal roofs definitely survived MUCH better than shingles. Look at
those decks, though. There weren't any decks left on the four-plex after
Moving away, but the same shot. The Mcollough house did
very well it seems. It should, being concrete and all. The Seagull 2
is visible in the far right. Some houses can be seen in the back of the
shot. They all look like they belong there, and I don't think any are
missing in this shot.
This is the furthest shot east that I have.
This is looking from the sound side, just to the west of the
last set of pictures. I think that some houses are missing on the Gulf
side. Does anybody have any pictures for reference?
Close up on 'tripple' house.
This shot is really bad. It's a second or two west of
the above. The 'tripple' house as I call it is left center. The gulf
can be seen at the top. The unique looking A frame is the one with Big
Bird on the door. I think that some houses are missing in this shot.
I remember that there was not such a big blank along the gulf right there.
I just walked that stretch two weeks ago.
Moving more west. I definitely think that something is
wrong here. This doesn't look right to me.
This shot is a little west of the one above. Again,
there is a blank to the left. You can see that a lot of gulf sand has
migrated inland. I think some houses are missing. in the middle. I
have confirmed that the Bullen house is gone, and that they plan to
sand migration is evident.
Still further west, still looking from the sound side to the
gulf side. I'm not very familiar with this area. The condos with the
red metal roofs are coming into view on the right.
The 'red roof' condos. I think that these are the Sunset
Harbor Condos. Somebody correct me if I am wrong.
