At the end of our visit with Corrine (see Soggy Reunion), we drove just a few miles down the road to Sebastian Inlet State Park. This is a nice park that comprises both sides of the ocean inlet, two beaches, and two fishing piers. It’s a very popular campground for fishers, and there are lots of sites overlooking the water, but we were happy with our more private site a couple rows back.
We just had one full day here, and that was a welcomed sunny one. We spent it walking with the pets along the inlet, watching pelicans dive for fish, strolling on the beach, hunting for shells, walking the piers, and just generally enjoying the good weather in a beautiful place. There are so many birds: storks, herons, egrets, skimmers, osprey, and loads of pelicans.
Our second morning, before we left, I got up before dawn and caught the sunrise on the beach. It was already so warm, and the beach and piers were filling with fishermen. As a westerner, we don’t get to see beach sunrises often, so that was a treat. And this one was a good one.
