Oct 27, 2014 - St. Joseph's Peninsula

We are on the Florida Panhandle, staying at St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. This has been rated by Trip Adviser and others as the #1 state park in the nation.....and I can see why. This park and peninsula are beautiful. No high rises here! Just a string of really nice beach homes embedded in a lot of natural/native vegetation. The park abuts a huge wilderness preserve with untouched natural beauty. And then there is the beach....not quite 10 miles of pure white sand facing the Gulf, and about the same amount fronting St. Joseph Bay. The...

Feb 10, 2013 - Port Saint Joe

We had met Randy and Lois at the Best Western when they checked in again last night. We had a great conversation over dinner and met them for breakfast this morning. They left for cycling to Wakulla Springs and we headed west. What a terrific time, seeing them! We had a tailwind most of the way and I am stronger than a week ago, so we had a great ride. The water was interesting all along the way, bay side and swamp side. At one point, John thought about looking for alligators and almost immediately saw about a six foot one in a ditch. I...

Feb 10, 2013 - Boiled peanuts and BP oil spill

We had people ask what the peanuts were like. So, the fresh ones are salty, slighty crunchy, and are very tasty. The ones canned (in water) were very salty, crunchy but in hard shells that are thrown away, and had an awful, tin can and kind of oily taste. We also had questions about the BP spill. We really have not seen evidence of it except signs posted here and there with phone numbers for filing claims, and tv adds about filing claims. One said a recent settlement meant that you did not have to show loss of income or profit to qualify....

Apr 6, 2011 - Another very nice day

After rain and wind during the night the weather cleared and we decided to stay another day at Indian Pass near Port Saint Joe. Beautiful day with the high about 70. We went to St. Joseph's State Park and it was gorgeous. Since we originally were only going to stay one night we did not take the camper off the truck. When we decided it was time for lunch, voila we had our own kitchen with us. I needed to thaw the lunch meat so I used the generator for the first time to make the microwave work. What a unit. The park was outstanding. We went...

Apr 4, 2011 - Travel day and new adventures

Sadly we left our new favorite place, Sunset Isle RV Park in Cedar Key, Fl. We will be back. Headed off for Apalachicola and wanted to stay at the St. Joseph State park but they were full so we booked into Indian Pass RV Park and what do you know we have a site right on the bay! What is nice about not having a time table is that we can take the time to go see neat things that we come across on our journey. Just like with a brown sign that said Lighthouse and something about a National Wildlife Refuge. We took the 11 mile drive and what a...

Jan 11, 2010 - Port St. Joe, Florida

St. Joseph Peninsula SP It was sunny, windy, and a chilly twenty-eight degrees when we pulled out of the SKP park! We took US Hwy. 98 through Foley, Elberta, and Lillian, Alabama. We entered Florida crossing over Perdido Bay, one of many waterways we’d see this day. We were about two miles north of the Pensacola Naval Air Station and the National Air Museum. We’d thought about going into the air museum, but decided we needed to get to our campsite instead. Our Garmin GPS indicated we’d get to our campsite around 3:30 PM Central Time. We...

Nov 28, 2008 - Seagulls and turkey

Thanksgiving on the Florida Panhandle - Friday, November 28 We left the sea on October 2nd, when we turned inland from St. John, New Brunswick. Now we’re back, and we’re reminded of how much we’ve missed it. The Florida Panhandle is quite different from the Bay of Fundy, and neither one is the open ocean. But salt water is salt water, and it’s good to smell the ocean breezes again. You soon realize that something is different here. There is only one tide a day! We haven’t found an explanation for that yet but one tide a day means less to...
