Pensacola Beach – IHMC visit : Florida

Florida has some really wonderful beaches, and some of the best Florida beaches are concentrated in the north western belt. On a surprise visit to Pensacola to accompany my host professor who was giving a lecture about his recent book to the IHMC about Willpower we visited the beautiful Pensacola Beach the next morning. White powder sand, clear blue water, and a calming warm sun, it was beautiful.

If there’s something lacking in the Tallahassee experience it’s being in Florida and not having a beach like that nearby. Starting your day with a morning job on a beach like that puts everything back into perspective.

To wrap things up before heading back to Tallahassee, we visited McGuire’s – a famous local Irish Pub.

Overall, spent quality time with my host professor on the road, listened to a wonderful lecture about willpower, enjoyed a pleasant dinner with the IHMC sponsors, visited the gorgeous beach and then had a terrific meal in an Irish pub. Good times.

[Update] Just been made away that Baumeister’s IHMC Willpower lecture is available online. Watch it here, if you’re interested :
