We are on the lovely barrier island of St. George, separating Apalachicola Bay from the Gulf of Mexico (map). We're planning to stay for two nights.

Yesterday, we stopped for a picnic lunch at Fanning Springs. The spring was crystal clear, and the state park has made it into an old fashioned swimmin' hole. Since it was 85 degrees outside, we plunged in, even though the spring is a cool (for us) 72 degrees. Very refreshing, and an interesting experience to swim in such clear water. (The spring pumps out several million gallons per hour, which run into the adjacent Suwannee River.)

I've got a nice pork tenderloin for the grill tonight, and I'm looking forward to relaxing for a couple days with no particular agenda.
