There was some rain over night and we woke to a dense fog in the morning. Once the fog began to let up we went for a long walk to explore the park. It remained cloudy all day. There’s a boardwalk that leads out of the campground so we went to see where it would take us.
The boardwalk and trail took us over a pond, through the woods and salt marshes by several pavilions in the day use area and ending at an observation tower. This is a popular spot for bird watchers and is also the “gateway site” for the Great Florida Birding Trail.
There are still very few people in the park but we did meet one couple on the boardwalk. As we chatted with them we learned that they are from near my home town in Minnesota and they knew my parents. Small world.
