Default Baja on Perdido Key

I rarely see another I/O on Old River/Perdido Key. I saw a nice (and it sounded great) white Baja (I think)...anyone here?
I have a Formula 311 SR-1.

We live in central LA, but primarily boat out of Panama City and Pensacola. Im familiar with Perdido Key (grew up in Navy Point area). However, the no wake zones in place between Perdido and Pensacola are too much for me, and its not often the wife endures offshore. My 26 Outlaw handles rough water as well as most, but I have better sea legs than her. When we are in town (we have two boys living there), we can usually be found anchored in the Ft. McRey cove. Unfortunately, Im pretty well shutting down till next spring.

I'm at Perdido Key Coves (on the big water, not canals)...keep an eye out for my Formula in the lift/boat house next spring. This is an old picture but replacement boat is identical except for stripes.

Any chance you can provide a landmark especially a nautical landmark that would help me identify where youre at.

Beautiful spot but obviously not without consequences. Still love FL though and hope to have anything even half as nice as yours there someday.

Hope that didn't just happen?
