There was a time when we could beach here and walk to the shell mounds or hike around the island. No longer. They want you to enter from the St Johns River side ...this is the Hontoon River side. There is no fee ..so I think they just want to know how many people are out there....they do have bears ...I saw one several years ago while walking our dog.Once on the St Johns I spotted this boat...looks like a comfy liveaboard and very sea worthy...I could live there! Oh...forgot...no room for the '49 Hudson .
A little color greeted us in the morning.
See you again on the river.
