Current Location: St. George Island State Park, Eastpoint, Florida
This morning we got most everything ready to go, then went to meet David at the base to drop off some food goodies with him and tell him goodbye for now. We also topped off the tank on the truck.
We hitched up at 11:00 AM and headed east a little over an hour to St. George Island State Park. The campground is out near the end of St. George Island, which is a barrier island off the coast near Apalachicola, Florida.
The town of Apalachicola looked pretty neat as we drove through. We’ll have to make a trip back that way to check things out. We’ll be here through Friday morning, so we’ll have some chances to do some sightseeing.
Today we mainly sat around the trailer (inside, unfortunately, due to the massive number of mosquitoes in the campground). We did venture out to the beach for a while. Val looked at shells and Malcolm flew a new kite he had purchased a few days ago in Mexico Beach. The wind was just strong enough to get the kite flying, but it was just a little too light to do much higher distance flying.
The campground is really nice here. The beach is excellent. There were maybe a dozen people on the beach as far as we could see. The beach is part of the state park, so that probably helps (as does the fact that the holiday weekend is pretty much over).
St George Island SP is a nice park but at times the flies can be bad.
Apalachicola is a great town to explore
