Carrabelle, Florida


Kevon and I are spending the month of March in the picturesque coastal community of Carrabelle, Florida! It is known as the Panhandle’s Gateway to the Gulf. Our place on Timber Island overlooks the Carrabelle River where we enjoy watching the shrimp boats as they come and go from the Gulf. My favorite pastime each morning is sitting on our upper balcony with my hazelnut coffee and seeing the dolphins! Magical mornings! The pelicans are a delight and Harvey the Heron flies in each day to say “Good Morning!” Feeling so grateful to experience another sweet spot in this beautiful world!

Goodbye Daydream Believer!


Kevon and I said goodbye to “Daydream Believer” in Mexico Beach . . . but the memories will live on! We ate lunch at “Up the Creek Raw Bar” in Apalachicola on our way to Carrabelle. Sipped Caribbean Water and savored our grilled shrimp and hush puppies . . .   how can shrimp taste this amazing?!!! We enjoyed walking around this great town again . . . love the history and so many nice people!

Last days at Mexico Beach


What a blessed time it has been at Mexico Beach, Florida. We went shelling for the last time yesterday and found so many Olive Shells – my favorite!!! Kevon flew his stunt kite on the beach – love my stunt kite man!!! We also got the thrill of seeing a dozen F15 Eagles flying over! Love love love these days . . . “You can’t buy happiness but you can buy a kite and that is pretty close”

Apalachicola Day!

Kevon and I found history, seafood and maritime heritage on every corner in the sweet town of Apalachicola! We enjoyed watching the pelicans near the seafood houses and shrimp boats – it is a working waterfront town and serves the freshest seafood on the coast. Our lunch of Shrimp Tacos and Grouper  at the Owl Cafe was amazing! Oyster City also has their own brewery! Loved the Apalachicola Sponge Company – I now have amazing sponges to use!!! So many colorful and friendly people! We walked through the Chestnut Street Cemetery which was established in 1831 – the headstones tell the history of Apalachicola. “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page”
