St. George Island Getaway
This past weekend, I went on a trip with my boyfriend to St. George Island. Before we did that, we went to a gaming convention for him for a few days, I know, super nerdy! But I love him, so I didn't mind tagging along. It actually turned out to be quite fun! Onto the island though...
This trip didn't start out in the easiest way...we were driving on the interstate, in my boyfriends' brand new car, and we were kind of stuck beside a semi-truck and the grass..when all of a sudden we see a HUGE piece of a semi-truck's tire just sitting in the middle of our lane. He had no choice but to drive over it and his new car is fairly low to the ground unlike his last. It was pretty scary! All we heard was a pop and something dragging. So we pulled over and his whole front bumper was dragging and messed up. It was not a good start but he is completely calm about it (which I wouldn't have been) and we patched it up and moved on ! He is getting it fixed today, don't worry!
The island was sooooo pretty! It apparently was called the "uncommon" Florida because it's only locals there. It took us a while to get there from Tallahassee, a lot of back roads, but a really pretty bridge that went across the water. I'm not one who longs or desires to live on a beach, I'm more of a city girl, but it definitely was a pretty site to take in.
When we first got on the island, we were starving so we ate at this cute little restaurant called the Blue Parrot. It was so good! It was right on the beach and it had live music - super great environment! We got an appetizer that had cheese sticks, jalapeno poppers and scallops? I can't remember exactly what the last thing was - it definitely wasn't my favorite though!
We weren't really planning on staying at the beach for very long. We still had a 7 hour drive ahead of us and it was just a short stop! We wanted to wind down and relax a bit before we hit the road. We saw a few starfish, he swam in the ocean, we took a few pictures and then we packed up! It was the best two hours I've had since graduation.. just relaxing and spending time with my love!
I made Anthony, my boyfriend, pull over so that I could take a picture of this gorgeous sunset! I couldn't get over how pretty it was driving home !
