One of the special highlights of our trip to the beach was meeting up with one of my best and dearest friends, Vicki. We've been friends since high school and love to catch up with each other as often as we can. She and her hubby have just bought a cute little house in Port St. Joe and we went over to spend the day with them. We ate lunch at the marina where they have their boat stored. The weather wasn't good enough to take the boat out, but we did ride around and look at lots of fun things.
The beach there is really wide and uncrowded. This is where you find the unspoiled beaches that are still left in Florida.
We walked along for a few minutes and I found a few seashells. There are no seashells in the Destin/Seagrove beaches and I haven't figured that out yet. Well, there are a very few broken pieces of shells, but nothing like I've seen elsewhere.
The crowds haven't found this beach yet, thank goodness. That's what they like about it and I can't say that I blame them. Port St. Joe is a quaint little beach town.

This is part of the bay.
Hubby with his fishing pole, waiting patiently for a bite. It just wasn't the day for fishing though.
This was a quaint little dock that someone had built at the end of a road.
And it made a very pretty photo.
I loved the look of this arbor going in.
With a gazebo
It was such a pretty church.
This house was tucked back in the trees right next to the bay where we were.
And this cemetary was on the same road. Thought it was interesting. This area is called Point Washington.
Another house on the same road, this house evidently was a homesite for a Brigadeer General.
The house looks very Old Florida. Nothing but a shack now.
