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”

St. Joseph Peninsula State Park

Yesterday Kevon and I explored amazing St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. The bulk of St. Joseph Peninsula State Park is all about being at one of the top-rated beaches in America, with some of the oldest and tallest sand dunes on any coast in Florida. Seeing that beautiful turquoise water brought out the “happy dance” in me! We also explored the wilderness coastal trail that was sprinkled with lichen (love), rosemary, pines, Sea Myrtle and Sabal Palms. What a perfect day! “If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere” .  . . Vincent van Gogh

It is a Good Life!

Our favorite place to eat in Mexico Beach is Killer Seafood  . . . Fresh shrimp makes one happy Kevon! I am crazy over the grilled tuna tacos . . . and of course Key Lime Pie! A good life is when you smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realize how blessed you are for what you have . . .thank you God!

Kevon and I are in Mexico Beach, Florida for the month of February – a little slice of heaven! The white sand beaches are pristine . . . small friendly community . . . and shells are abundant! Walking the beaches for miles each day has been healing to my body, mind, and spirit . . . “Some people see more in a walk on the beach than others see in a trip around the world”
