Okay so it’s Saturday the last full day of our Gulf Coast trip. It didn’t go as fast as I thought it would so to be able to enjoy the slow life….it was very very good. That Saturday was kind of chill we were supposed to go on a boat ride but it got cancelled due to the wind. We instead checked out the Farmers Market and the Downtown area of Port St. Joe.
I love supporting local finds and we found three things that are a must. Some barbecue sauce, fresh fruits, and that honey…..remember the bees from our last post? Yep that honey oh so good.
Next we were off to the Lighthouse. Now let’s talk about this light house for a second. I am not fit to climb 130 steps…..I had to take a breather every 5 steps. I had to do it though because my kids were watching me + I was the first one in line so everyone was behind me….Why and how this happened I have no idea. I made it to the top and collapsed.
- Put on comfortable shoes. The steps get steeper the higher you go
- The history behind the light house is priceless so make sure you stop by the store before you go up
- The view…..I have no idea how it was because I was shaking and I am scared of heights
My hubs did however capture the view for me.
Next we saw some stuff in the water. Some stuff being a shipwrecked boat, a crab, and a dead turtle…eewwww
Off to eat at the Shipwreck Bar
We had free time in between and if you follow us on Instagram you saw some of that free time. The wind down of the evening though was a dinner cooked by
Gulf Coast: Gourmet Chef Now
MaryAnn & Steve Conroy
My husband and I have never ever had food that tasted this good that was cooked that fast and in front of us. When I tell you that food was so good……I had to get the recipe for the Salad Dressing and yes I had seconds….maybe thirds but hey whose counting. I will share the recipe in our newsletter just for those that are signed up. My son got to help cook too. For some reason he loves that kitchen…future chef hmmmmmmm
The experience was very very very good.
- There is so much to do you will need a few days so plan your visit accordingly.
- The people are nice and they treated us very good in each store that we went in
- Cell phone service will suck but you are on vacation….you don’t need any service. Relax and Enjoy
