This guy, the man who loves water and a shoreline,
had done his research well. Topsail is a beautiful park with a fantastic campground
with a short bike ride or convenient tram ride to a beautiful stretch of beach on the Gulf of Mexico.
We stayed there four nights. Paul wanted to try some shore fishing.
That's him out there throwing a cast. I took the picture with my phone. I, of course, was very supportive, as usual, and cheered him on in his efforts.
Actually, I'm knitting while in that chair. I did glance up occasionally to be certain he hadn't been taken under by a shark. It was the least I could do.
We found a great seafood market and so continued with our promise to each other to eat seafood daily while we were still on the coast.
Shrimp on the grill
is our obvious favorite.
Amberjack was available during our stay there. Excellent.
It was so good, we grilled some again the next night!
I could continue on this seafood diet. Even Paul, who loves his steak, didn't miss red meat.
The weather was perfect during our time there with moderate temperatures and light breezes. Our plants were happy with their new location.
We enjoyed our "Florida campfires" each evening.
Thanks for finding this place, Paul!
I'll come back and stay here anytime! Good bye, Florida! It's been a great winter.
