Who knew Santa would arrive in Apalachicola the day after Thanksgiving on a shrimp boat?
We thought going over to Apalachicola the day after Thanksgiving would be a nice way to spend a quiet afternoon. Little did we know we’d be joined by thousands of others! It turned out to be a great opportunity to browse some old book stores, look at some nautical items, wander down streets we don’t normally see, eat some great seafood, browse some art stores and eat some incredible desserts and drink some craft beer!
We had a wonderful time at Mexico Beach, Florida for Memorial Day weekend! The weather was gorgeous. The water was just right. And as always, the sunsets and photo opportunities didn’t disappoint! Thankful for a place to stay as we travel to Northwest Florida and extra glad our kids (who aren’t really kids anymore) like to spend time with us! Several days of kayaking. Hours and hours of walking. Picking up sea shells. Talking to random strangers. Having conversations that don’t always take place. It was a good weekend!
Here are a few shots of our time away:
On our trip home, we lingered for a while in Apalachicola, Florida – got to see things like the sailboat above as it entered the Apalachicola River. We watched pelicans dive bomb for food and dolphins swimming under the bridge. Lots of interesting sights – and not ones we get to see everyday – at least not in Central Florida!
Until next time!
