After months of renovations, Pensacola's iconic beach ball is back~
|New paint job on Pensacola Beach Ball!|
The renovations to the Pensacola Beach Ball located on Casino Beach are finally complete! Repairs began in early March 2012 and are completed as of this week. Apparently, the job was supposed to be completed by Memorial Day weekend but the painters just missed the deadline. Maybe the out of town painters took one too many long lunches on the beach? We don't blame them.
Realty Masters has been watching and documenting the progress ~

The painters were reportedly from Alabama and were paid over $175,000 to complete the new paint job. The Beach Ball stands over 125 feet in the air, which sure makes it a difficult commodity to paint.
