Toured the Apalachicola National Estaurine Research Center that is a joint venture with FL DEP, NOAA, and Franklin County. Lots of good stuff but the marsh trail was closed which was a disappointment. Lunch at the Blue Parrot on SGI where I got my oysters. Couldn’t see coming here and not sampling the local fare. This afternoon we went to the Camp Gordon Johnston WWII Memorial Museum. Roger’s father did boot camp there. The Carrabelle Historic Museum was next then we just drove around looking at what is down all the streets. There were many developments plotted out in the early 2000s but went bust with the economy in 2008. On the way to dinner we looked at the “Bottle House”. A lighthouse and a small structure are made of bottles and concrete. There were citrus trees growing there. I can’t believe they grow this far north. We were unsuccessful in getting any to grow in Rosewood.
Finally met Skip, the owner of the hotel and got some good local history.
Dinner was a shared crab cake meal at Fish Camp.
