“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.”
A beach with perfect sugar white sand only a five minute walk from our campsite. I think I am in heaven!
Our home for a week is Ft. Pickens Campground in Gulf Islands National Seashore on Santa Rosa Island. I’ve been doing a lot of walking on the beach and beach chair sitting.
We’ve taken a couple of hikes on the half-mile Blackbird Marsh Nature Trail near the campground.
It is nest building time for Ospreys and several nests can be seen in the area. Ospreys are frequently seen soaring over the campground and a few of the nests can be viewed close up from the nature trail.
And the sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico are breathtaking!
More of the Fort Pickens area coming up in my next post.
