The Cape San Blas Inn was a wonderful quiet spot with a long dock into the bay where we sat in a hot tub at moonrise. We walked across the street and down a sandy lane to the beach within 5 minutes. There were turtle nests marked off as out of bounds, mullets surfing in the swells hitting the beach, families fishing (those mullet weren't biting), and firm sand perfect for walking. Afterwards we had a lovely room to rest in with a small fenced patio and comfy bed. Breakfasts were delicious and we enjoyed meeting some of our fellow travelers over the meal.
We hope to return to this lovely quiet spot on the panhandle one day to linger a little longer.

|Caution: Turtle Nest. It is turtle nesting season in the area and we saw at least 5 of these marked nest in just a short 1 mile stretch of beach. A happy sight.|
|Jerry talking to the family of fishermen...not catching much, but they were having a great time.|
|Look careful...those are mullet bodysurfing in the surf...just about 10 feet of shore|
|The Cape San Blas Light. No I didn't walk up to the top. If the prospect of walking up the steps wasn't daunting enough...I'd would have had to walk up a spiral set INSIDE that white tube. No thanks!|
|Right across from Cape San Blas Inn is a small groups of businesses where you can buy real estate, beer, eggs, hamburgers, souvenirs and of course coffee & ice cream.|
