That's the open Gulf beyond Jr. We rode the end of a falling tide out through tiny islands to the Gulf, played around in the shallows during the slack tide, and then used the incoming tide to help us paddle back against a steady land breeze. (Yes, we planned it that way)
Jr. and the prop roots of the red mangrove. The more cold tolerant black mangroves are dominant just a few miles north.
Along the way, we found my idea of paradise on an isolated point. This is classic Florida architecture in a classic Florida setting.
In modern Florida, this is what the developers bulldoze to build bland, Condo/Marina complexes for the rich. They call that progress.
Y'all know what I call it...so, I'll leave it at that.
