The island

We had made arrangements to meet my parents in Florida for Christmas.
Where could we go that was not crawling with tourists? After some research we settled on St George Island. We arrived on St George Island late in the evening, the drive from Texas took us much longer than we had planned.
It was a little cool and breezy but after all it was winter time.
There were hardly any tourists there.

The beaches

St. George Island is one of the barrier islands off the Gulf coast. With its nearly 10 miles of undeveloped beaches and gently rolling dunes, the place to be any time of the year, is St George Island State Park
.
You can see beachcombers, sun worshippers, and birdwatchers out walking. You will be very impressed with the size of the beaches, St George Island has the most beautiful and carefully preserved beaches in the world.

    Its good to know that 90% of the oysters and 53% of the shellfish in Florida come from Apalachicola Bay. Time to go there. Merci.

    So nice to spend time with parents at Christmas in Florida at Saint George Island. What's not to like??? oysters, saltwater fishing, boardwalks, and BIRDS. Glad they don't let vehicles on dunes. Apartment sounds wonderful.
