Apalachicola and St. George Island

The family and I experienced a wonderful time vacationing on St. George Island. Located in Florida, St. George is sandwiched between the Gulf of Mexico and Apalachicola Bay. It’s largely a fishing community and caters to a few tourist. It’s nothing like the crowded, over-commercialized areas like Destin or Panama City.

We enjoyed sitting on the beach, fishing from the pier, exploring a lighthouse and feasting on great seafood. Feel free to share your favorite ocean spots. Here are a few photos, courtesy of my daughter:

    Where did you get the idea that St. George Island was a fishing community?

    • Just an informal observation really. I say that with Apalachicola Bay in mind. We and friends have come here many years especially because of the great fishing and the sparse supply of tourists. I’ve always observed a lot of fishing activity here, even though it is a great place to just soak up rays on the beach and have a vacation. How would you describe the community?
