Loving this vacation in Florida. We are on St. George Island, which sits between the Gulf and Apalachicola Bay. Quite a barrier beach, reminds us of Ft. Pickens near Pensacola Beach. Quiet campground with more tent campers. We rode bikes along the dunes, Doug did a bit of paddleboarding in the bay and we swam in the Gulf of course. Windy, so the surf seems more like the Atlantic Ocean than the Gulf of Mexico, lots of waves, but the water is warm and clean. Did I mention I got my fitbit wet in Panama City and it crashed, dead. So now none of my exercise steps count (if you fitbit, you know the withdrawal). But fitbit will replace it, soon as I get home and send them a copy of the receipt (yippee, but will I make it until then?). One more of my “smart purchases” is Omaha Steaks before we left. Easy portions that are frozen and ready to defrost and grill. Yeah, we could do the same thing with vacuum sealer and all, but this worked out just fine (lots of steak on the grill, some chicken and burgers – good eats). We roll out of here in another day, then on to Manatee Springs for some cool water snorkeling and maybe a manatee sighting.
BTW, I finished up “Edge of Eternity”, book three in the Century Trilogy by Ken Follett. Great read, even though it took me from Christmas until now. Now in the midst of “The 6th Extinction” by James Rollins. What are you reading this summer?
We are now in Manatee Springs and were finally able to post pictures from their snack bar. Bought a triple meat platter of barbecue for dinner at the snack bar. Delicious and finger licking.
More when we can…
