Florida Factoid Friday



The largest national estuary preserve in America is in Florida at Apalachicola.

It spans 250,000 acres with the largest diversity of reptiles and amphibians in North America.

Meems, Apalachicola seems like the end of the universe. We're within day trip distance, but don't go there as I'd like.

Aint B, believe it or not, other states have designated 'state pies', as well. Indiana's is the sugar cream pie, Vermont's is apple and Louisiana has an official 'state meat pie', the Natchitoches meat pie.
I posted a Key lime pie recipe here.

CC/JJ, it really is a wondermous place. I need to get a real early start and see if I can catch some action at the docks.
