This Sleepy Beach Town Made Me... Sleepy

Gulf County and Mexico Beach, FL

Maybe it was the 8 miles of walking on the beach in the sand, or jumping rope, or just needing a break, but today I was sleepy. 

Granted, I would never call Mobile a big city, but there is a lot more going on there than here in Mexico Beach, or Port St. Joe, depending on which side of the road I am on. Of course, this is not a bad thing. 

I am certain that when it is not winter, the beach is filled with people... or people are in the town. But at this moment, this town is quiet, sleepy, and peaceful. Not many people on the beach, not many people walking around, not many people doing much of anything. There aren't many food places, and the nearest grocery store is 9 miles. That is not far, but when there is only one road in and out, and the spread limit is about 40mph... things don't move so fast.

Something tells me I need to enjoy this slower pace because the next few stops will be bigger cities until we get to Texas, where things will slow down even more than this. So, I will enjoy this great weather and the slow walks on the beach. It gives me time to think about life and figure out my priorities for the year.
