Hey

I did not realize you took a pic of me that day.It was good to see you.I only live about 5 minutes from St.Andrews state park.It is a great park to visit.It has pretty much everything you need within a walk away.

Great photos! Thanks for sharing with us. We've stayed at Top Sail twice and St. George Island State Park once. We look forward to trying some of the other panhandle parks in the future.

State Park

Just to let you all know.I have been to Grayton beach state park.It is small and very wooded but if you try to go down one of there trails.Watch out for the signs.They actually have warning signs that tell you the area is infested with mosquitos and boy are they right.I went thru there one time and it was so thick that it looked like a gray wall in front of me.I left that campground.I just could not handle all the bug bites.

Thanks for posting the beautiful photos...

I am heading down to Key West the first week of January and had planned on getting to the Gulf Coast side down around Clearwater and south. But from the looks of your photos I think I might re-route a little to pick up one or 2 of your sites in the Panhandle.

thanks again for the inspiration, I just love sites exactly on the water...

regards, Dave

Key West

If you are going to reroute maybe you can stop by the Can Opener rally on the 4th to the 6th of January.
You will have a blast going thru the panhandle,Lots of sunsets,Shopping,Great weather and most of all no snow and you go home with a great tan.

Thanks, I will have to figure some and see how much flexibility I can build in to the dates...

I have tickets to the Washington Redskins / Dallas Cowboys game here in DC on Dec 30th, and already have my Key West reservation starting Jan 6th (waterfront site at Boyd's Campground). So if I can't work it in on the way down then will do so on the way back up.

If I come back up that is... I have already winterized my 19' as it is cold here so I figure to add water etc after I get below North Carolina and then will have to re-winterize again, on the road, on the way home.

At any rate, also, the Dry Tortugas National Park is my absolute favorite down in Florida, but I have not yet figured any way to get my Airstream out there...

regards, Dave

Big Lagoon

Great post and pictures. We stopped at Big Lagoon this summer. The park lost power in the middle of the night so we left for Gulf Shores. Big Lagoon was in pretty rough shape and poorly maintained. This was quite a contrast from Gulf Shores which bounced back after Ivan. No shade but it was close to a great beach.

Forgotten Coast

Well, it used to be. Looks like the word is getting out. The area is one of my favorites. I highly recommend St. George and St. Joseph. Great little campground just across the bridge (going East) before you get to Panacea called Holiday Campground... you can walk under the bridge and eat at the newly re-opened Angelo's. While in the area plan on spending a day out around the St. Mark's Lighthouse and grab a bite at Riverside in the city of St. Marks - Fall bird and butterfly migration is awesome. There is a campground right at the road out to the lighthouse... might be worth looking into.

I have pictures posted at my website...

Keys

That campground is really cool.I went there for the first time this year.A friend of mine that I followed down there took me to Hogfish grill down the road from there.It is really wild how you have to go thru a bad part of the hood to just get there but that resuarant is the best.There hogfish sandwich is the best.

Redneck Keys

That campsite at Boyds...
Just my bike and a very small tent was $68.
Location was very important for that being my first time at Key West.

We usualy refer to 'Redneck Riviera' from New Orleans to Suwannee River...
Most people you meet on the beach are from just down the road back home.

I found there is an offical zone, or someone is trying to make one. (probably Florida COC)



"Redneck Riviera"

The Emerald Coast, particularly Panama City Beach, is known colloquially as the Redneck Riviera, although this term is sometimes applied to a larger region of the coast from Mobile, Alabama to Apalachicola, Florida.
Redneck Riviera is also the title of a song by Tom T. Hall about this region. Lyrics include:
Gulf Shores up through Apalachicola They got beaches of the whitest sand Nobody cares if gramma's got a tattoo Or Bubba's got a hot wing in his hand

That, my friend, is a visual I did not need to be reminded of. I think I'll screw the top back on my bottle of wine and go to bed.

Thanks for that nice picture of Boyd's, am looking forward to getting down there as it is getting a little cold up here.

Reminds me of the last time I went down there during the winter. On the way back up I-95 I ran out of squirter juice for the windshield so stopped for gas somewhere around Miami and bought a jug of window juice at the gas station and filled up the tank under the hood. About the time I got up to Virginia the temps were down around 10 degrees above zero and the whole window washer system froze up. Was a nice mess thawing that out, but didn't seem to hurt anything.

Seems the window juice they sell down in Florida is not rated for anything involving "frost"... So this time in the back of my truck I have a nice new jug of "Maryland" window juice rated for -20 degrees... So I will be set this time. I have about a month for this trip so I expect to get back to Maryland by the begining of Feb which is our coldest time of year...

anyway, thks for the photo, Dave
