As Dave mentioned in the comments on my last blog, Tierra Verde is near St. Petersburg, not St. Augustine. I’ve never been to St. Augustine – who knows what I was thinking when I typed that!
Anyway, Fort DeSoto is a very nice county park (Pinellas County). They won top beach several years back and of course have several signs saying so. They have bike trails throughout the park and I enjoyed riding to the beach every day.
I had a great campsite. It was large, had privacy and was on the Mullet Key Bayou.
I enjoyed birdwatching from my campsite. There were a couple of osprey nest on a small island not far from my site. Below are a couple of birds (Egret and Great Blue Heron) that hung out around my camp site.
While there we had a full moon and I played a bit with my camera taking pictures in the evening and night.
On one of my bike rides, I discovered Arrowhead picnic area and a “hidden” swing. I enjoyed several bike breaks on this swing. While there one day, I watched this guy and his dog heading out in his inflatable kayak.
One evening, I was watching the sunset and noticed several neighbors doing the same thing.
From here, I headed to South Bay, FL. South Bay is on the southern end of Lake Okeechobee. While there I took several day trips. On one of these trips, I took the following picture. Any ideas, what it is? I’ll let you know in my next blog.
