When we were about 50 miles out we could see the rain in the distance. It wasn’t too long before we were right in the middle of it and it rained on & off almost all the way to St. George Island.
We traveled to US 19, went south where we got onto US27 which took us to the outskirts of Tallahassee. There we picked up US98 and stayed on it to our destination.
It wasn’t long before we started to see the Gulf of Mexico and what a nice scenic coastal ride it was. I just love the Oceans, Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico.
Soon we came to Island Drive in Eastpointe and turned left to head to the Island. You could see the old St. George Island Bridge and the new one. They took down the old bridge when it was deemed unsafe and the new one built in 2002.
First thing we saw was a lighthouse which we will go back to explore during our stay here. Then we started seeing alot of the homes that are built on the beach side and are mostly rentals. Some of them are really huge and all of them are beautiful and colorful.
After about 6 miles we arrived at our destination St. George Island State Park. Nine miles of undeveloped beach, pristine shoreline, majestic dunes and bay forest, sandy coves and salt marshes. A series of hiking trails, boardwalks and observation platforms great for hikingmor a leisurely stroll through the marshes or beach. Not to mention magnificent sunsets.
We arrive at the campground after about a 4 mile drive and got Tassie all set up in her new spot for the next 2 weeks... We are staying at St. George Island State Park. Watch for a review of campground in a few days. Life is Good!
Have Fun, Travel Safe & Stay Healthy!!!
