As I said in my last post, we’ve been coming to Florida my whole life and whilst it’s beautiful and the perfect place to relax, you couldn’t exactly describe it as buzzing where we are. My brother was pretty darn relaxed after a few months here and quite keen for a change of scenery which led to me suggesting we do a little road trip. Neither of us had ever been to New Orleans and mum hadn’t been since she was 11 so we decided to head there, with a couple of little stops along the way.
Our first port of call was the quaintest, most adorable little town called Apalachicola. Tucked away on Florida’s northwest coast it’s full of lovely little shops, cafés and restaurants. We arrived early evening and checked into our hotel.
Dinner was to be found at the Owl Café Tap Room
Starting off with pomegranate cocktails
I think this had to be one of my favourite parts of the whole place, everytime an order is ready, this little chap pops out to alert the waitress. How great is that?
On the way home we popped into Tamara’s Café for a last cocktail before bed where I had one of the most potent drinks I’ve ever had (only beaten by the Flaming Ferrari from Nam Long). Let me introduce the blueberry lemon drop martini. She packs one hell of a punch.
Next stop Alabama!
