road trip day 50: apalachicola, florida

Despite not being able to pronounce it, Apalachicola was one of the highlights of our trip. This small gulf-side town is located in Northern Florida and harkens back to the past. It is the "old Florida" that we often heard people reminisce about and long for. It is as beautiful as it is decaying, which adds to its charm. You feel as if you are walking around in 1920, not 2014. 
 Because Apalachicola is known for its oysters, we had to grab lunch.  We ate at a restaurant with its own fishboat that delivers fresh seafood right onto the back deck. Talk about fresh! Gulf oysters were pretty good, and ended up being a close second to Washington's, but the shrimp took the spotlight! I've never eaten shrimp that tasted as good as it did in Apalachicola.
