Eric Ericson grew up in Pensacola, Florida and married the former Christine Dixon in 1978. 

  Amateur Photographer

 Eric's dad invented the Fork Lift Marina concept.. that document is almost 7 megs.

Eric and Christine have sons Shaun (37) and Nick (35).  Shaun is a Journeyman electrician and Nick graduated from UAB and is a Professional Civil Engineer.  Nick and Jackie (who also graduated from UAB) were married September 21, 2012.  We live in our retirement home in Pensacola.
We love to go to concerts, camp, go boating and celebrate with our friends usually around the waterfront.  Eric loves to cook... especially on a grill. 

Here are a few of our exploits:
Memorial Day Weekends 2005, 20062007, /  Hydroplane Races / Balloon Races  /  Our former Boat/ Mountains Visits / Blue Angels at the Beach  / Jamaican Festival and Bathtub Races 2012
 Harpoon Sailboat  /  Bike Ride at Navy Point (YouTube Video)  
BB King Concert /  Rock Legends Cruise /  Hangout Festivals   GoPro vid of Gumbo Key

We love live music.   Some of our Concerts:  In the last few years, we saw BB King (He put two guitar pics into my hand when he came out on stage.)  It was a few months before he passed and, having seen him in his prime, this show was kinda sad.), Aretha Franklin, St. Paul & the Broken Bones, The Eagles, Elton John, The Zombies, George Thorogood & The Destroyers, Robert Earl Keen, Grand Funk Railroad, Lynrd Skynrd, Trombone Shorty, Earth, Wind, and Fire, Kid Rock, Frankie Ballard, Stevie Winwood, Def Leppard, Styx, Tesla, Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull), Pentatonix, Greg Allman (twice, months before he passed),  Britt Floyd, Three Dog Night, the Desert Trip music fest (Dylan, McCartney, The Who, Neil Young, Rolling Stones, and Roger Waters of Pink Floyd), the Moody Blues, Robert Plant and the Space Shifters, and Blackberry Smoke, and  Joe Bonamassa.

On the Rock Legends Cruise (III) in 2015, we saw Dave Mason twice, Edgar Winter, Marshall Tucker, Savoy Brown, Paul Rodgers & son Steve Rodgers, Artemis Pyle, Swamp de Wamp, Ten Years After, Royal Southern Brotherhood, Outlaws, Blue Oyster Cult, Alice Cooper, and Uriah Heep.

On our Second Rock Legends Cruise (IV) in 2016,  we saw Peter Frampton, America, John Kay & Steppenwolf, Randy Bachman, Foghat, Rick Emmett, Savoy Brown, Artimus Pyle, Gregg Allman, Grand Funk Railroad, Marshall Tucker Band, Uriah Heep, The Outlaws, and The Pat Travers Band.

On our third Rock Legends Cruise (V) in 2017, we saw Pat Benetar, REO Speedwagon, Todd Rundgren, Nazareth, Ted Nugent, Rick Derringer, Don Felder, John Mayall, the Marshall Tucker Band, and the Kentucky Headhunters.  I sat beside and talked with the drummer for the Kentucky Headhunters... the rest of the band was beside him... while we watched Todd Rundgren.  I was particularly impressed by the 80-something John Mayall, who played keyboard, harmonica and sang... sometimes simultaneously.

We love the beautiful Colorado natural amphitheater called Red Rocks (el, 6,400 ft.).  Click on that link, then click on the pic that comes up and you'll get a humongous pic of Red Rocks.  Red Rocks is a free park, usually, and obviously a popular place to exercise.   At that location, we have seen John Prine with Kaycey Musgraves and the Zac Brown Band, Steve Miller Band with Peter Frampton, and Jackson Browne (no opening act).

We are scheduled to see The Hollies, The Zombies, Herman's Hermits, Arlo Guthrie, The Buckinghams, The Grass Roots, The Family Stone, Rare Earth, Vanilla Fudge, The Classics IV, and others... mostly on a cruise.

We are so fortunate to have local musicians here in Pensacola.  We have been to a bunch of Pensacola Beach's 'Bands on the Beach', and the Maritime Park's 'Blues on the Bay', series and we follow Tommy Mazullo out here in the neighborhood.
