St. George Island State Park, FL





The drive from Dothan was pleasant on good two-lane state roads.  There was a long scenic stretch through the Apalachicola National Forest.  That is, until you couldn't see any longer due to a controlled-burn in progress.



Peggy was already set up at her site.  Here's a peek into her 17-ft. Apex from the outside looking in.



St. George is a 2,000 acre barrier island located off the Florida panhandle.  An undeveloped piece of heaven.  This is the narrow road that takes you 4 miles to the campground proper.



On one side of the campground is the beach



On the other, this quiet cove



I don’t think you could pick a bad campsite here. 



Here’s Peggy describing the pitcher of Sangria she prepared.  





Bottoms Up!




Plans for tomorrow include some beach time, some Auburn football game time, and lots and lots of oysters.

  3. What a lovely place. Is there a dump station anywhere in the vicinity? I need to add that to possible destinations as I traipse, albeit slowly, through the south-east. I'm still in Livingston, TX for another week and hope the rain and super cold will have let up. I stay cozy inside with lots of books and the Internet. Have fun.

  6. Looks wonderful. That road looks narrow, but at least it is paved.

    1. Not so narrow you couldn't make your way in the Alfa. Plenty of big rigs here.

  7. What a gorgeous place! From your photos, I like it a lot better than Ft. Pickens! So unspoiled!

    Your photos were gorgeous. Love the angle of the shot of Peggy's trailer. And SO funny seeing Peggy describe the pitcher of sangria. It was accurate, too! Looks wonderful.

    The shots of the area are what really got me, though. SO beautiful. I sure hope we can get there someday!
