Mexico Beach and Apalachicola

  A long weekend to the Florida panhandle was part of our summer vaca this year. This beach is approximately 1 hour east of Panama City Beach. There is no shopping and very few restaurants. We were glad we planned ahead and brought a supply of spaghetti, steaks and salmon for grilling. The VRBO condo was nice enough and had a complete kitchen.

We had beautiful weather on Thursday and Friday....followed by rain the rest of the weekend.....

We drove east to view the town of Apalachicola, a small town where oysters were king.....I remember my dad going fishing there in the 1960's.

I am not sure if this boat is functioning or just for photos....

 We celebrated our 40th year anniversary on July 12.

We haven't changed much......haha!

Enjoy your summer! I have THREE weeks left before reporting for duty!
