Feb 3, 2013 - Panama City / Mexico Beach Area

We spent our final several days in Florida enjoying the northwestern / Emerald Coast area of Apalachacola, Port St Joe, Mexico Beach, Panama City. Bonnie's brother, Don and his wife Kay, began their month in Florida on Feb 1, so we spent some time with them, enjoying eats, drinks, parades, parties and the Super Bowl. Bob enjoyed driving through the Tyndall AFB area where he was on active duty for a period of time in 2004-05. We also met up with one of Bob's Chaplain Assistants during his AD time who currently lives in Panama City and...

Feb 3, 2013 - Long, straight road

We worked our way through Panama City this morning. We saw neat older neighborhoods, with lots of beautiful trees. Then we rode through Tyndale Air Force Base. Near the south end, we illegally rode onto the base a few yards to a military fire station and they kindly allowed us to use the restroom. It was a long, long straight road through mostly pine forests. About 17 miles with only one angle change of about 5 degrees! Boy, was I glad to see Mexico Beach. Very welcome. It is a little stop along the road to Apalachicola. After a couple of...

Mar 12, 2011 - The end of winter in Florida

Today started daylight savings time and the end of our winter in Florida. I enjoyed it Florida much, much more than I thought I would. Some of that is probably because winter has been cooler that previous years. I was worried about it being too warm and humid. I hate humidity. Also, I was expecting a lot more bugs. We lucked out in that department in not being bothered very much. We saw many beautiful places and I am looking forward to coming back again in a few years. We have Nova Scotia this summer, the Rio Grande Valley in Texas next...

Mar 11, 2011 - Apalachicola

Apalachicola. It is a little bit of a tongue twister to pronounce. It is has been recognized by the National Historic Preservation as a destination town. Many of the original buildings from the 1830's remain intact. Many of the ships stores, old net factories and sponge warehouse are being used for restaurants, art galleries and shops. The remains of oyster houses, shrimp packing plants and even an original ice house are still present. A great walking tour with map is available from the visitor center. Many of the residences are open for a...

Mar 8, 2011 - St. Joseph Peninsula State Park

This was a particularly great outing because we had more encounters and sightings of animals out in the wild than we have had in a while. St Joseph Peninsula State Park is near Port St. Jose on off of Hwy. 98. The park has two campgrounds and the finest white sand that I think I have ever seen. The park has been given very high marks for one of the best beaches in the world. It is beautiful. In addition to beaches, there is birding, boating, cabins, canoeing, fishing, hiking, kayaking, picnicking areas, snorkeling, wildlife viewing. Over...

Mar 5, 2011 - Mexico Beach, FL

Our next and last stop in Florida is Mexico Beach. We are at Rustic Sands RV Park. A Passport America park with most amenities and activities. It is very popular. A little hard to get the satellite signal, but nice trees with sandy sites. Our neighbors right across from us were a couple we met when we stayed at the Jolly Roger in Marathon in December. Small world. Ron and Carol are very fun with a cat and dog we fell in love with. We encountered a couple of days of severe rain storms and two tornado watches. We got lots of heavy rain,...

Oct 10, 2010 - Mexico Beach, Florida …‘The Forgotten Coast’

2010, October 1st (Mexico Beach, Fl …‘The Forgotten Coast’) We arrived at El Governor RV Park, in Mexico Beach, after an hour’s drift up the Coastal Highway. Florida Highway 98 is a lovely drive graced with several stretches of road running adjacent to the Gulf waves. Our windshield framed small villages with fishing boats bobbing in the water and long tracts of woods edged and painted with fall flowers. We passed through Eastpoint and Apalachicola, passed St. Vincent Sound and Indian Lagoon then crossed over the Intercoastal Waterway. We...

Oct 4, 2009 - Mexico Beach, Florida

Boy, we have been on the road a LONG time. It is getting close to my "hybearnation" time. I wonder if Frank & Sylvia remember this? I slept some on the way down, but I DID want to see the gators in the Georgia, Okefenokee swamp. No such luck. Kept on "travelin". We are now camped at Mexico Beach, Florida. When we arrived the weather was "beary" GOOD. First thing I wanted to do was, put on my "trunks" and head for the water. I KNOW there would be fish in the GULF OF MEXICO. I think they took my picture as we headed for the water. Again,...

Dec 22, 2008 - Mexico Beach, Florida

The cold is staying directly behind us but we are confident we will escape it tomorrow! We continued our drive along the scenic Gulf Coast today with temperatures in the upper 40’s. It is so odd to be driving along in Clyde, toasty and comfortable, looking at the beautiful white sand coastline but then remember we would require winter clothes to enjoy walking on the beach today! The blue ocean and white sand looks so tropical and inviting but open the door to go outside and you get a slap of windy cold that makes your eyes water! We have...

Jan 29, 2008 - Mexico Beach, Florida

At last...the Trekies have landed for the first time in Florida. We once again have internet access for the next two days so hope to catch up from here...Larry Panama City, Mexico Beach and Port St Joe are an almost continuous string of white sand beaches, broken occassionally by inlets and coves spanned by tall bridges and long causeways. The beaches are rimmed by tall pine trees and swampy brush and palmetto groves. The Air Force must like this area as there are several bases along the coast - tough duty. And then we see rows of beach...
