About two years back, my husband went to Tyndall Air Force Base in Panama City, Florida for schooling. Shortly before he finished his classes, I visited and totally had a blast. While the tour was quite short, it left me wanting to see more of Florida. We agreed that the base sightings is beautiful, what if we visited another county?
