Re: Holiday Food, now Apalach

It still looks a lot like a frontier town, Auralie. I was stationed there [Cape San Blas lighthouse] in 1952-53 and my wife and daughter had a small apartment in Apalach. The town hasn't changed much since then, except the shrimp boats seem to have moved on--only oyster boat at the dock as near as I could tell--and the Jitney Jungle has gone away. When I offered the observation to a maid at hotel that the town was pretty much the way it was when I lived there, she said "Oh, no. We growed up a lot since then." Kinda sad to see the disrepair and neglect that has befallen the lighthouse. Guess that's what happens when you turn lighthouses over to the Air Force.
