Next stop, the Salt Run in Anastasia State Park on the East Coast of Florida. Imagine our luck when a planned windsurfing trip to Anastasia didn’t pan out due to NO WIND (after it was windy all week long), so we brought the paddle boards instead! Another calm September morning, on the water by 8:15 with the sea birds and sea turtles. And yet another lighthouse reflection on the water…we paddled from the State Park down to the marina, practicing our yoga moves while going under the docks along the way. I love the colors of the St. Augustine lighthouse on the water.
After meandering our way back to the park, admiring the beach houses and catamarans, we saw several young loggerhead sea turtles and the head of one big sea turtle. The birds were beautiful and plentiful. The moon had been full just the day before, and the tide was higher than we have ever seen it in the Salt Run, allowing us to explore some creeks that are impassable in all but the highest tides.
I hope we can continue to explore the water view of the lighthouses of Florida, as they are definitely worth reflecting on!
