Hello, Happy Monday
I am close to ending my posting on our Florida trip. On this day we drove the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo Florida. Hubby enjoys snorkeling and we thought this would be a place for him to snorkel from the beach. We were wrong, you have to go out on one of their boats tours to see the good stuff. Hubby has been spoiled from his snorkeling in Grand Cayman, Hawaii, Belize and some other places we visited.
My photos show the beach at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo Florida. There were not a lot of birds around, we did see a Great Blue Heron and some kind of Sandpiper. There were a lot of Palm Warblers around too. The no-see-ums were biting us to the point we could not enjoy the park. We did not stay long at this park.
I am guessing a Solitary Sandpiper, please let me know if I am wrong.
We saw a few of the Eurasian Collared Doves.
If you plan in advance, this park has boat trips for snorkeling and glass bottom boat rides. They also have kayaks for rent. There is a visitor center with a 30,000 gallon saltwater aquarium.
Can you find the Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.
Before we left we took a walk on the trail, I saw a Sapsucker sharing a tree with a lizard and more Palm Warblers.
The trail was rocky and had lots of tree roots, we had to watch our step.
These Palm Warblers were in the trees and on the ground. I guess the bugs were plentiful.
We did not stay long in this park, we left and drove to the Everglades National Park. I will share the Everglades another post for my last report on our Florida, 2019 trip.
Thanks for your visit today! I hope you enjoyed my post and photos.
