life is good

view from Constitution park to the Gulf

The first of Florida's five constitutions was drafted by a convention that met on December 3, 1838 here in Port Saint Joe, the site now the Constitution Convention Museum State Park.

Centennial Building and old train from Saint Joe Lumber Company

Old Saint Joseph Cemetery with many prominent Florida statesmen, mass grave sites of yellow fever victims in unmarked graves, along with the ship captain who brought the yellow fever epidemic from the Antilles in 1841.

Our first day - sightseeing, local history, beach time, eating fresh steamed shrimp - mmm life is good at the beach!
