This park is very different. It is like a thick jungle. There are large trees and very old palms some of which are 50 feet tall or taller. This gives an idea of what Florida was like hundreds of years ago with a thick forest floor of palmetto and vines with a thick canopy of a mix of palms and scrub oaks.
Today, we take a walk over to see the beach and maybe find a few shells.
Wow! The area off the high-water mark is thick vines and short plants. Imagine coming ashore and having to make your way through this stuff.
The walk to the beach is great. Other than the campsites, roads, parking lots, and boardwalks the area seems unspoiled.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
