Happy Memorial Day Weekend on Cape San Blas!

Cape San Blas is normally known for fresh fish, scallops and shrimp but on Memorial Day weekend, seafood takes a back seat to the Volunteer Fire Department's Annual Boston Butt Roast sale. This community event is part of the annual fund raiser which includes donation requests. Funds collected are used to improve the fire departments ability to provide emergency services to the community. To place an order or make a donation go to www.sgcfire.com.

Last year, the Volunteer Fire Department added a second fire station on the north end of the Cape in close proximity to A Tropical Breeze.  This new station keeps the fire apparatus and emergency equipment in close proximity to the volunteers and has helped reduce response time on the north end of the peninsula.

Thank you to our fire fighters and emergency response volunteers.

Weber's Little Donut Shop on the Cape - Great New Addition to Cape San Blas

I stopped by the Trading Post this morning to check out the new donut shop and had a lovely visit with the owners, George and Betty Weber. It was about 10am and they were already out of many flavors and the summer season hasn't even started.  George wakes up at 4am to mix up the donut batters and start the cooking.  They open at 7:30 am and stay open until they are sold out.  During spring break their days were short since they sold out about 8:30am.  The local residents know to arrive early so they don't miss out on their daily donuts.


Each day there is a special donut of the day. Today it was cherry chocolate donuts and tomorrow is blueberry.  I bought two donuts today, the cherry chocolate and the chocolate coconut and they were both delicious.  I'm heading home tomorrow and plan to buy a dozen to take home to my family.  Hopefully I won't sample them all on the drive home. The Weber's Little Donut Shop is a wonderful addition to Cape San Blas.  Be sure to stop by on your next visit to Cape San Blas, but plan to arrive early while the donuts are still warm and before they sell out.

Working Hard on Cape San Blas

The summer rental season is just days away.  A Tropical Breeze will be the vacation home to families from as far away as Oregon this summer.  The first guests arrive this weekend, with new families arriving every Saturday for the next 11 weeks.  I took the opportunity to drive down from Atlanta yesterday to make sure everything is ready at A Tropical Breeze.  I must admit that it's not been all work.  Here's a picture of the bike path and my shadow. I took this picture this evening while riding to the new ice cream shop at the Trading Post. 

The new Coffee and Ice Cream shop serves Edy's ice cream, milk shakes, smoothies and gourmet coffee and if that's not enough, there's a new hot donut stand just steps away.  The donut shop is only open in the mornings so I will be sure to go back tomorrow so I can report my findings.  The Trading Post owner says the donut maker gets up at 3:30 am to mix up the donut batter fresh.  There is also a special donut every day plus all of the regular favorites. Check back tomorrow for donut details.
