When we traveled to Florida earlier this year, we stopped for a night in a Kingsland, GA hotel just off of I-95. At the suggestion of the clerk, we decided to go to ST Marys Seafood for dinner, which wasn’t very far from the hotel. I didn’t take any photos of the restaurant but I will tell you that if you are ever in the area, don’t be put off by the building. Just go in and have something to eat. It isn’t fancy but the food was delish!!
I had always heard about ST Marys but we had never been there. We only had a short time that evening because as mentioned in my Georgetown, SC post, they were predicting possible icy conditions the next day all the way to Georgia. Our plan to take our time and sightsee along the way went by the wayside. We left NC to escape the bad weather so we decided to just stay one night and move on. We only had a short time to do some sightseeing that evening and of course, we headed to the waterfront and what to my wondering eyes should appear??… why a shrimp boat, of course. 🙂 Anyone that follows this blog know that I can’t resist taking photos of shrimp boats. I love that this one had those old buildings next to it. The only other place that we got to see that evening was the Howard Gilman Memorial Park, also called ST Marys Park, that is also located on the waterfront. It is beautiful with a large fountain at the entrance, palm trees, and even a pier to watch the boats come in. Visit ST Marys website shows so much more to see!!, I said this about Georgetown and I now am going to say it about ST Marys – we have to go back again!
