A Tropical Breeze - Day Trip to St. Vincent Island

It looks like the last week of March and first week of April will be big weeks on Cape San Blas with many schools having spring break those weeks and Easter arriving on April 8th. 

Welcome to the Parker Family who has been coming to A Tropical Breeze almost every year since it was built and the the Brown Family who are new to A Tropical Breeze and will hopefully return many weeks in the future.

If I were on Cape San Blas or in the area on March 30th, I would attend the St. Vincent Island Open House. We have been going to A Tropical Breeze-Cape San Blas for 10 years and love it so much that we never make time to go to St. Vincent Island. This open house is the perfect opportunity to explore this national wildlife refuge.

Fishing and Biking on Cape San Blas

Just back from Cape San Blas.  Our daughter had a three day weekend so we decided to head on down from Atlanta.  Every time I pack for a 3 day weekend, I wonder if it's worth the effort, however once I'm on Cape San Blas I never regret the decision.  The weather was great for early March and both our daughter and her friend got sun burnt.  Rob fished both Saturday and Sunday and caught a few small redfish and whiting. Even though I packed plenty of food, we ended up at Coneheads for ice cream on Friday and  dinner on Saturday.  We enjoyed Coneheads excellent hamburgers and fries, as well as the chicken parmesan sandwich. They were quite busy, which was good to see this time of year.

After our dinner at Coneheads, we had a bonfire on the beach in front of A Tropical Breeze, enjoyed the abundant stars and roasted marshmallows for s'mores.  Our only regret was not bringing our bikes.  The extended Loggerhead Bike Trail is almost complete and runs from St. Joseph State Park to the beginning of the Cape and Salinas Park.  Construction is in it's final phase with just the last mile under contruction.  We saw families, snowbirds and serious bikers all enjoying this great new addition.
