The famous DONNA KAY of Cape San Blas, Florida!

 

(We bid the Donna Kay farewell as she was dismantled and removed from the cape the week of August 23, 2021.  Though she no longer rests on the shore where she had since 2018, she drew many individuals and families to "make the trip" over that short time.  The Donna Kay will continue to live on in the memories of many.)

Local legend tells the story of the Donna Kay.  The Shrimp boat arrived on the shore of the Cape San Blas on the Forgotten Coast of Florida in 2018.  Her arrival is still surrounded in some debate and variations of her story abounds throughout the community.  The most popular account of her fate is that she arrived on the Cape just days after the Category 5 Hurricane Michael that wrecked havoc on the area.  The Boat was supposedly being returning from Alabama to Apalachicola after the boat had received repairs. The captain experienced problems and the shrimp nets got caught up in the boat's mechanics causing the boat to lose steering capabilities and run ashore.  Several attempts have been made to remove her.   The Donna Kay had become a popular icon in Gulf County

 

Florida.
