After leaving Port St. Joe, we were starting to face the reality that we could be reaching the end point of this cruise. We actually had a "Plan A" and "Plan B": A-being that we removed the mast from the boat in Mobile and headed up the Tennessee River system to Chattanooga; B being that we stopped somewhere between PSJ and Mobile, finding a "safe harbor" for the boat and heading back to Chattanooga to be land lubbers. After some considerable contemplation, neither A or B seemed like what we really wanted to do, but we kept moving slowly towards Mobile.
From PSJ, we went to St. Andrews near Panama City. St. Andrews seemed more appealing than Panama City as it was a little older and quainter and didn't seem to have the tourists. We enjoyed our stay there and were there for a couple of weeks. We met great people in the municipal marina - but that has been a common to all of our stops. There were also some nice restaurants and bars.....and we met the couple that runs the local "Fred Astaire Dance Studio". We had a great night out with them....despite my two very left feet. I stood on the toes of some amazing lady dancers and likely unknowingly ruined their dance careers.
