St. George Island
St. George Island has to be one of the most stunning, peaceful places on Earth. We went for the first time in April 2008 and have been St. George Island-dreaming ever since. I'm not even that much of a beach person, but St. George is different. No touristy crap, very few people, just dolphins, crabs, and sea gulls. We went back a few weeks ago during Lil's fall break, which also happened to fall the week of our 11th anniversary. The rates are super-low this time of year and even lower since the oil spill. They actually gave us $150 in gift cards to use on the island, courtesy of PB. We saw so many dolphins this time, just 20 feet from the shore. The house we rented was comfortable, cozy, dog-friendly and had a 65 foot deck overlooking the ocean. Each morning, we watched the sun rise while eating breakfast and sipping coffee. I've never been so grateful to have early-rising children.
