We made it to our weeks vacation spot at Carrabelle Beach RV Resort and it was HOT!!
Carrabelle is a small fishing village 20 miles east of Apalachicola. The “resort” is across the street from the beach, which is littered with a few houses, but none of high rise condos that dot the landscape in other towns on the Gulf. Hence, the beach is usually empty apart from a smattering of fisherman and a couple of people from our campground
The beach is just across the road through a little path for our side of the resort
It was uncomfortably hot while we were there, hence the empty beaches.
Below, is the Carrabelle Police Station. It used to have a phone, but too many abusers making long distance calls, forced them to remove it
We sampled all the local restaurants, The Pearle being a particular favorite for the grouper and Lynnes Oysters in East Pointe, 10 miles west, but worth the trip.
We popped over to St George’s Island for a look around and easily accessed by bridge. The island is 22 miles wide and consisting mostly of natural shoreline which is state owned. The main town had a lighthouse, a few shops and 2 or 3 small hotels. and dozens of rental homes. The rest of the island, about 20 miles of it was deserted.
