Mark made it back from his business trip and now it feels like countdown. We have a week left as of today, and as much as I've enjoyed this break, Star Mt is softly calling my name. Snow and mud will be gone except on the high peaks when we get back.
We're trying to make the most of the time and zipped to the beach via the wonderful Wiggins state park that's five minutes away. I'd heard about this place as huge, beautifully maintained, and on the edge of Wiggins Pass which has boat access to the gulf and good fishing. Yup, it is all that and more.
They're dredging the channel right now, a common occurrence here all up and down the coastline, but that didn't seem to stop the large number of fishermen lined up (saw one catch while we were there- small pompano) and boats were coming out in a constant stream. Lots of parking right off the beach, numerous picnic areas in shade with tables and grills ready to go, even a concession stand discreetly tucked away with everything you could imagine to rent including canoes and kayaks, and that gorgeous white sand beach as you can see. We'll be back...
Made it to a new farmers market that is also 5 minutes away. Love all the great produce, although this one didn't have the same cache as downtown.
Apparently inhaling books while I'm here. Crowded Grave by Martin Walker, the Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown, and I am Half-sick of Shadows by Alan Bradley. All good with two of the three ( Walker and Bradley) the latest in a series, and only one is a British theme - ha to those who think that's all I read.
