We decided to depart Fort Pickens yesterday morning. We got away from the CG around 9AM and started driving East on Hwy 98. All the tourist towns wedged between the Military bases and the Gulf of Mexico. Ft. Walton, Destin, Panama City, etc. As it was a Federal holiday, traffic wasn’t too bad but there were plenty of stop lights. East of Panama City things begin to change. Port St. Joe, Apalachicola, and Carrabelle were more to our liking. More like the old Florida. Fishing rigs and oyster boats, along with roads paved in oyster shells.
We stopped for the night at a small RV park just East of Carrabelle. Between the highway and the Gulf. Nothing fancy, but a really neat place. Check out our personal palm tree.
Sally especially likes it as she is allowed to walk along the shore and smell all those fantastic things that don’t exist back at home. There are even beware of bear signs around. The beach, if you can call it that, is narrow but just as much fun as the larger one’s. As we are on some bay that is protected by offshore islands, the water is much calmer.
We made it down and back a couple of times today.
A look back toward the park.
Didn’t do a lot today. Took a ride to check out a nearby state park we may stay at on the way back through. Wanda did a little laundry and for the most part, we just chilled. May move on tomorrow, or stay here another day. Really depends on the weather.
The sunset tonight was interesting. Took a few shots to remember our visit. For those of you that haven’t picked up on it; I like sunsets. I take more sunset pictures than anything else. I just like’em.
