There is only one road to the island and it costs $6 to cross the causeway.
It was an absolutely beautiful day with a high temp around 84* and the gulf was picture perfect.
We had a good view of some of the shacks on the beach.
The wildlife drive through the reserve is 4 miles long and there is a $5 fee per vehicle. If you choose to walk or ride a bike, it's only $1. We took Titan along, so we didn't do a lot of walking away from the car. There were plenty of places along the drive to get out and sightsee while keeping the car in sight.
We were rewarded at our first stop by these cuties.
The mom had several babies but somehow they got separated, so mom had to go and retrieve the wandering one in order to reunite her family.
|Let's stay together this time.|
There's a very nice overlook along one of the flats where the birds congregate.
Other than the raccoons, we saw lots of birds.
Seriously, does that look like a lighthouse?
We stopped on our way out to use the restroom and found these cool plants.
It was a nice, lazy day and everyone had a good time.
|Yes, I'm having a good time.|
