Jewell Key, Florida

Visiting my sister in Florida, we took a boat ride from Everglades City out through Chokoloskee Bay to Jewell Key via Sandfly Pass.  We stopped at the campground on the key and walked around, viewing the Gulf of Mexico out beyond the mangrove islands.  We came back via Indian Key Pass, making a big loop.

Kayaking on the Great South Bay, NY

My brother and I decided to take a twilight paddle across the Great South Bay, from Jones Beach Island to Massapequa. We started in the early evening, and paddled into the night, on a calm evening with little wind and a slack tide.  We saw a beautiful sunset and enjoyed the wildlife of the Great South Bay.
