Port St. Joe
Please note that the gulf side pool is open, the bay side pool, hot tub, and exercise room are under repairs due to the hurricane damage and closed until further notice. The bay side fire pit and the piers are available for use. Pictures are of the large gulf side pool.
Post Hurricane Michael the gulf beach in front of Ovation is larger than before. Sand from the dunes and other areas of the beach settled near Ovation, this is normal for the beach erosion pattern on the Cape. The storm did not break through the dunes, sand fences have been placed to re-nourish the sand that has been moved. If you have visited the ST Joseph Peninsula State Park, just down from our house, the storm cut completely through the Cape a few hundred yards past the boat launch. Initially the cut was 1,000 feet wide and up to 30' deep. Six months later, sand has filled in most of the cut, now just a 50' wide shallow cut; with a large sandy area stretching from the gulf to the bay. A must see, especially if you have visited before. Mother nature is incredible, with both her force and ability to restore. The people of Port St. Joe are incredible and came together helping each other. It has been the most special part of the trials that they endured. Long ago, the town was a paper mill economy, today it relies on us, the tourism. They very much appreciate all of the well wishes and the support of people visiting and supporting the local economy. Come, relax on the beach and bay, and enjoy some wonderful seafood.
