Camping by Boat to Cape Sable (Part Three)

Posted by Shane On December 9th

Welcome back to Part Three of Camping by Boat to Cape Sable!

Hope you are doing well this holiday season, can’t believe we are coming up on the end of the year already. 2012 will be here before you know it! I hope you are taking the time to enjoy your family and friends during the holidays. I’d love to hear what you have been up to, please leave a comment below and share!

Alright, so we left off last with a long night of fun pranks while sleeping on the beach at Cape Sable. The next morning or should I say when the sun came up. It was so beautiful. Cold as could be, but beautiful clear skies and no storms, Yippee..

We did have a small problem though, when we looked down to the boats, we realized that we had not anchored them far enough off shore. With the tide dropping so drastically, one of the boats sterns was high and dry…UGGGGG… Not a good thing..

It was not bad, we were able to get the boat right off… We went to check on the other boys still sleeping and they were out like lights….could not wake them up for anything. We started to cook the Bacon and Eggs and toast and wouldn’t you know, there heads popped out of the tent, we are hungry. We ate like kings, it was soooooo good. Imagine this… cooking an amazing breakfast on a beach that overlooks the gulf as far as you could see.. check out the photos….

After breakfast we all decided to run up to Lake Ingraham and fish for awhile. Lake Ingraham is amazing. There are all different types of Creeks feeding into it. This is a great place to catch Red Fish, Snook, Trout, Tarpon and some times Snapper if you can find some type of structure, whether it be man made or Mangrove Roots.

We did okay fishing caught a lot of fish, many of them too small so we released them. It was time to head back and pack up our camp and get ready for the beautiful journey ahead of us.. check out the photos and photos of our way home.


All in all, it was an amazing adventure. The weather was amazing and beautiful. Everyone caught fish, no one got hurt. The memories these kids have made. They will never ever forget this trip for as long as they live.

This is what life is all about, enjoying your family,friends and Loved Ones…

Make time to make time and enjoy life. It is far too short.

Until next time……


Camping By Boat To Cape Sable (Part Two)

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing great.

Our local Real Estate Market is still going strong. Homes continue to sell and new construction is being built. It is hard to believe, but the market is transitioning from a buyers market to a seller market. Our inventory is continuing  to shrink. Banks are loaning money to qualified buyers, yes qualified buyers. Although many of the transaction we are seeing in todays market are cash.

As they say, cash is king….

Home prices are so low and there are some amazing waterfront deals still out there,  but they are being bought up. If you would like any information on our local Real Estate Market, please let me know, by contacting me online or calling me at (800) 741-3757 . I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. I can set you up on an automatic program that will give you full access to our MLS. It will also update you on new listings that come on to the market as well as homes going pending. You will like it, it is a great program and it is free.

Okay now on to the fun stuff, the Boating Guide, Camping at Cape Sable by Boat Part 2.

We last left off with the sun getting ready to go down and getting ready to start dinner. We had the best dinner. Uncle TJ is a chef, seriously he is a chef and prepare this amazing food on the main land and brought it out in coolers. We warmed it up on the fire and cooked all of the fresh fish we caught, oh my it was just amazing. Out in the middle of no where and eating like kings. Of course with every campfire, you must have marshmallows.

After there fill of marshmallows, the kids decided to go on a walk about with their torches. This is gonna be good. I think they made it a couple miles down the beach and the torches burned out. Now that was funny, dark out, no light, & the flash lights back at the camp.
