Now that we know the place, we can decide about meeting on the docks.
Fishing was probably good and that restaurant along the water, the no frills one one 1 mile away, was worth the trip.

I like the panhandle too but for St Georges island, is that not an island to reach by ferry?
There is a bridge to St. George, but they don't have any facilities big enough for a group that have docks on site. St. George is awesome, but mostly houses, now they do have some monster houses that will sleep a dozen or more with docks and bay access...

how about the Water Street Hotel in Apalachicola

they have 28 rooms as of now they have 11 slips available and a marina next door for overflow.

STAY AWAY FROM NOV 1st ...... that is the seafood festival and rooms are 400. night

other than that she said that she would give a group block rate, because as they fill up so does the price..



:oops: :oops: :oops: EDIT......

I have NOT stayed there just did a little google search because I love the panhandle and there has not been a meet there
yet..............

Nice work! Apalachicola is an awesome place. That area from Carrabelle west is on my short list when I finally retire for good.

I think it's worth a look.. Love Apalachicola, great seafood and some very good fishing... I know that place especially the west side of the bay around St Vincent.

I just did a google search of the place. It looks like a really neat area to me. But then any place that is sunny looks good to me right about now :lol:

I checked out the Water Street Hotel.
The hotel and area both look like great places for a meet...
I would give a vote of yes if y'all want to have a meet there 8)

Edit...I have been to Apalachicola a couple of times. They cook up some great seafood there :wink:

Apalachicola is great for food. On that same Waters Street, there is Oyster Town where we stop each time we drive through.

We were in Apalahicola 2 days ago, now we are in Carrabelle. Very heavy rain since we've been here and the restaurants are all closed as it Christmas??

My brother and his wife and Deb and I meet in Apalachicola every few years. It is a great little town with great food. But it has grown from when we first started going there.
