Air Force Armament Museum, Eglin AFB, FL

Monday morning came and it was time to leave Destin and head up to Crestview. Along the way, I thought I'd stop in and surprise an old friend at work. We popped into the bank where she worked, Sherry had to do a double take but finally recognized us. We chatted for a bit and made plans to meet up for dinner later in the week, then we were off again. While we were headed up, we saw the signs for the Air Force Armament Museum at Eglin AFB, so we thought we'd stop in for a visit.

The museum, documents the history of Air Force Weapons Systems. It's a very well done museum (as most military ones are) and they also have a very impressive outdoor aircraft display. After spending a couple hours there, it was off to Crestview to visit and stay with one of Sheryl's Cousins.

We finally made it in, Sheryls Cousin Linda and her Husband Glenn were very welcoming. They have 40+ acres just outside of town and hooked us up with a nice spot by the garden and even provided water and elec. Sheryl is having a great time visiting and catching up after 20+ years. I took off yesterday to explore the Eglin Reservation (and didn't get lost or stuck!!) but I'll save that for the next post. We are both enjoying our time here, and have plans to visit my old friends Andy and Sherry tonight, it'll be good to see them again.

You Air Force guys sure have some pretty cool "toys". I enjoy military museums and didn't know about Eglin AFB having one. I do now, thanks!
