Spring Break 2011 ~ St. George Island, Florida

Happy 50th Wedding Anniversary Mom and Daddy!
We love you!
 Leslie, Jess, Shane, Elise,Claire, Jeff, Jackson, & Sydney

This year's Spring Break was extra special as we were celebrating the Parental Units 50th!  Destination: St. George Island, Florida located just across the bridge from Apalachicola, Florida world famous for it's fabulous fresh oysters!! 

Boss Oysters is ranked as one of the top 10 oyster bars in the United States!  And yes, we ate the heck out of these babies, the more Tabasco the better!!  On the half-shell, fried, baked, in bisque, in gumbo, etc!

We fished and fished and fished!
Jeff, Daddy and Jess

Pompano and Claire caught in a private moment

Daddy set up a 10-hour charter for us with one of his captains and it was one of those absolutely perfect days offshore.  Not too hot, great seas, ice cold beer and A/C on the boat, a spot-on Captain, a ten-armed First Mate and fish on for everybody!!!

Me in my happy place!

Awesome Captain and First Mate
