I don’t think I mentioned the name of the town where we stayed – I was initially looking at a state park called grayton beach, and I was only looking at that park because my friend nan was going to camp there one night, and she’d heard it was nice.  but gee, that’s not much to go on, is it?  but people have told me how nice some of those panhandle towns are, so I figured grayton beach was a good starting point.

also, somebody had told me about Seaside, Fl, where they filmed “the Truman show.” Seaside, an idyllic little place, right next to grayton beach.  seagrove beach is about a mile and a half from seaside, and that’s how I found it.

on our first day we walked on the beach to seaside.  it’s a unique place; it’s only been around for about 30 years, a planned community and they must have lots of zoning restrictions.  all the houses are similar but not identical.  the town has grown up a lot since “the Truman show” was filmed there.  the trees are a lot taller, anyway.

not a lot of people around that morning as we walked around town.

we walked out to a point on western lake, which is at the north end of seaside.



we stopped at a little café on the way back to our condo, and spent a little time looking out at the waves.

and then it was back to the beach…

and I recorded the sunset, because, you know, that’s what I like to do.




an awesome first day in florida…

ok then,
