This looks like a fake back drop, doesn't it? There is a bridge that we try and stop on when we travel to St. George Island. There are wonderful views and we have managed to get photos of all bikes, with the exception of the Sportster, on this bridge.
Here is a view of us going over the bridge at St George Island. It's fun taking photos from the back of the bike while it's moving. I never know if they will come out as I am wearing a helmet and that makes it hard to see what I am snapping.
The destination this day was The Blue Parrot restaurant. They are right on the water and it's so lovely to sit in shade, enjoying a view of the beach and blue Gulf waters. Usually we get a grouper sandwich but this day we both ordered the fish tacos. These are two grilled Mahi tacos with homemade salsa (a bit of kick to it) and cole slaw. So. Good. We are now on a quest for the best fish tacos we can find.

Ready to roll now. I love our outings on this trike.
We stopped in Carrabelle in hopes of getting an ice cream and also to let me get a snap of the Police phone booth. As it was Sunday, the ice cream place was closed. See the little dogs in the doorway? It was so funny, they walked together, at a good trot actually, and went right up to the door. It was as if they were there for ice cream too. Once looking in the door they trotted back the way they had come in.
Here I am at the world's smallest police station. Read about it HERE.
"In the early 1960's, Carrabelle's police phone was located in a call box that was bolted to a building at the corner of U.S. Highway 98 and Tallahassee Street. During this time, the city had problems with people making unauthorized long distance calls on its police phone. Johnnie Mirabella, the only St. Joe Telephone Company employee in Carrabelle at the time, moved the phone to another location, but the illegal calls continued."
Riding over bridges is fun! It's cooler temperature wise and the views are amazing.
We rode down on Highway 65 to get to SGI but came back via Crawfordville.
One way is 1 h 40 min (76.3 mi) via US-319 S but we always meander back a different way. That's my coastal ride report!
