St. George Island, FL

(I am naming the postings after the places I am overnighting, by the way.) I headed south from Dothan and had my first glimpse of the Gulf of Mexico at Panama City Beach, where spring break was in full swing. Panama City Beach itself is a mix of beaches, high-rise hotel chain buildings and fast-food chain places, and was filled with scantily glad college kids, some of them wearing funny and/or unfortunate headgear.

I, however, declined to join in on the spring break fun (even though it is technically my spring break, too), and headed along the Florida Panhandle, stopping in pretty places along the way, until I finally found St George Beach, which was so pretty that I just kind of had to stay there – I spent some time on the beach at first and then went to the car to drive off once the sun started going down, but there was that Motel next to the parking lot and … so you get day and sunrise photos from St George Island – the sunrise one in the next post, however, as they belong to the next day, and the sunset at so (and no sunset photos, as I did not take my camera along).
