The Great St. Marks FL Flood of 2008

1 Nov

Our first visit to the Riverside Cafe in St. Marks FL was almost cancelled due to unexpected street flooding. It had poured all morning (and most of the day before), causing the town’s major (and only) intersection to fill with the brackish waters from the neighboring river. These two brave young lads donned their rain ponchos and guided us through the ankle high, minnow infested water to the cozy confines of the cafe, which can be seen directly over the head of the handsome rascal wearing the hat.   

We parked our car just up the street at this classic general store/filling station  

Our adventurous trek was rewarded with a tempting fried oyster basket 

Take a closer look at these crispy monsters — a true highlight of the day!
