The towns of Apalachicola, St. George Island and Eastpoint, cover and area of about 20 miles. They are the heart of the Forgotten Coast and give you an authentic taste of Florida’s Gulf Coast.
Eastpoint: Lynn’s Quality Oysters Raw Bar in Eastpoint is fun and really, really good! It’s a small, laid back restaurant/seafood store on the Bay with the freshest oysters harvested everyday down the road in Carrabelle. We ate dinner with Lynn and her oyster shuckers and servers…all good Trump supporters! The oysters were delishish and looked a little different from the usual oysters from MD, Louisiana or Texas…they’re very thin shelled.
Apalachicola is a quaint small southern town with a strong maritime culture, an eclectic group of locally owned shops and galleries, great restaurants and fresh local oysters and seafood.There are cool restored B&B’s. There’s miles of uncrowded pristine, white sand beaches, shallow bays and waterways. We spent an evening at the High Five Dive Bar, owned by a Navy Veteran. The live music was phenomenal! The band was only 2 guys (best friends since high school). Their name is Living Street…check out their YouTube page.
Apalachicola is the home of Oyster City Brewery. We’ve become quite fond of their beers. Favorites are Hooter Brown, Mill Pond Dirty Blonde Ale, and Tates Hell.
Indian Pass: We stayed in a campground that is on the Bay. It was a short paddle to St. Vincent Island and out to the marshes (Cary walked in the marsh and I stayed in the canoe that he pulled along (gator country!) In fact, we saw our first alligator!! Cary stepped down from the pier on to the boat ramp and the alligator was on the ramp and Cary almost stepped on it!
Fishing: We caught whiting and catfish
