Venture Out Lagoon Pool

Posted by in News | September 26, 2017

The Lagoon pool bath house renovation is still going. They had some logistical issues with the power that are now resolved. They’re working on the plumbing this afternoon and the “pool pit” (filter/heater, etc) is being put in this week. Once these things are complete the building should go up pretty fast. The goal is to have it complete before Thanksgiving.

The playground, basketball court, pavilion and picnic area are all still available for use. The resort added new benches on the pier and it is ready for fishing or just relaxing and watching the boats and birds.

Sunset September 11, 2017 at St Andrews State Park

Posted by in News | September 12, 2017

After the storm finally left us, there was crazy beautiful clouds and big beautiful waves. You may want to turn your sound down, it was windy and it’s a little loud.

After Irma

Posted by in News | September 11, 2017

Venture Out and Panama City Beach survived Irma with little to no damage. There was a little rain and lots of wind. There are palm fronds and tree boots everywhere. Tons of leaves and a few limbs and trees in some parts of town. Venture Out is in good shape, we will do a more intense check tomorrow when the weather is more favorable.

The strangest part of the storm has been the water. The Lagoon water has been blown out to the gulf. It’s beautiful but strange to see.
The water on the beach is like low tide but even farther out than normal.

After watching the video, scroll past to see a few pictures from Venture Out and a couple from the beach at the county pier. It was raining pretty hard when we were out and that is a great place to see the beach without having to get out of the car.
