World's Smallest Police Station

22 January 2008 | Moorings Marina- Carrabelle
Day 11 - Tuesday, 1-22-08 - Carrabelle

The excitement about leaving Carrabelle tomorrow morning is palpable. The four of us walked into town today. As we passed by one of Carrabelle's claims to fame, "The World's Smallest Police Station," Jean just had to take a picture of Gerry inside the police station. The guys then went to a marine store to buy light bulbs for boat fixtures while the girls went in search of a drip coffee pot. You would not think something that simple would be so hard to find, but there was nary a one in town, and some of the clerks didn't seem to know what to make of our request for a "non-electric coffee pot - a drip pot." We came the closest in an antique store, but the drip pot the proprietor said she had was gone - it had been sold already. We did our best to clean out the Dollar General store though, and got some real bargains.

Sara and Jean took the guys to the used book store and they bought more books. Our library is quite extensive now. Then we went to Carrabelle Junction for lunch. We can certainly recommend the place to others who may find themselves in need of sustenance while in Carrabelle. The food is good and the place and owner are interesting.

The guys headed back to the boat to continue with their boat chores while Sara and Jean went in search of the local Episcopal church, The Church of the Ascension, which was founded in 1888. It is a lovely little church with stained glass in the front which looks like it came out of the original church.

The rain started again this evening. We really hope that it has cleared by the time we need to leave in the morning. We desperately want to get south of all this bad weather, and the sooner the better. (JGR)
