Susan and I brought our bikes and kayaks with us on vacation to Florida. With so much gear we had to take the truck instead of our more comfortable trip car. Usually we vacation in Florida in Destin. The beaches there are the undisputed best in Florida. The sand is whiter and the water is clearer in Destin than anywhere else along that part of the Gulf coast that I've seen. That said, we decided to give St George Island a try.

My brother Keith and his wife Diane drove over to St. George Island from Jacksonville. They spent two days with us there. On our first day we rode bikes to Dr. Julian G. Bruce Saint George Island State Park on the east end of the island. From our condo to the park and back was a 10-mile ride.

We also ate at the nearby mainland restaurants The Owl Cafe and...
They were both good. We ate out a lot but Susan also cooked us some fresh fish in the less than well appointed condo kitchen.
