Mexico Beach is a bust. It's an old town with not much to see. Our rental is nice, but that's about it. We went to the next town of Port St. Joe. Bigger, but it seemed like any other town. My wife liked it, but I wasn't feeling it.

So today we started off early and our goal was Carrabelle, a town past the southern tip of the panhandle. My wife heard some friends just bought there. We decided to visit Cape San Blas, a remote peninsula off the panhandle point. Once you go far enough past the military test sites, a small community suddenly pops up. It looked awesome. Met some folks on the beach who go there every year. If you really wanted seclusion with a scenery and small town feel, the Cape is the place. Too remote for us. The couple we meet told us Carrabelle is just OK and ther are no beaches much further up the coast, beyond St. George.

Well 45 minutes later and arriving in Carrabelle turned out exactly as the couple said. We immediately turned around and headed back to St. George Island. This was our best move of the day. While remote also, it seemed to have life. The beach was gorgeous and the housing was classic beach. Loved it. We agreed it's too remote to live there, but something we definitely want to come back too and rent. Great people we met. Loved St. George Island.
