We spent a week in Florida at the beginning of June! I definitely recommend the Cape if you aren’t into the hustle & bustle type of Florida trip.
We took our niece, Savannah, who is 7 years old. It was a true test of our parenting skills…or lack their of. We did really good until on the way home in the midst of disciplining her I just could not hold it in and we all laughed until we cried. It’s all fun and games with Blake & Adam.
We went a day early ahead of my family to meet some friends from Mississippi in Pensacola for the day. That night we swam at the hotel and went to bed to prepare for a big beach day!
We played on the beach all day in Perdido Key at Johnson’s beach. Only $3 to park and you’re set for the day.
After a day in the sun we drove the couple of hours over to Cape San Blas. Savannah was worn out and slept the whole way.
The week on the Cape was nothing short of amazing. There was a lot of time spent laying around at the pool or beach. We ate a lot of doughnuts & ice cream.
There was no go carts, putt-putt, or expensive dinners, and that’s just the way we like it!
One day we did drive over to historic Apalachicola and walk around down town and into the boutiques and antique stores. My mom & I are notorious for shopping all day and not buying anything. I guess that’s not shopping? Anyways, it drives Adam & my dad insane. It’s just how we work guys. Sorry.
We stayed at the complex called Barrier Dunes. Did I mention the whole Cape is pet friendly? Most of the condos are pet friendly and don’t have a restriction of “no animal over 2.5 pounds” or something else insane.
My family keeps coming back to this place! We can’t wait to go again next year!
