Alligator Point

Introducing Brigadune at Alligator Point, FL

A different kind of beach vacation---one surrounded by loads of wildlife (and very few people):
sea gulls
pelicans
sting rays
electric rays
crabs
horseshoe crabs
whelks
hermit crabs
oysters
jelly fish (the tiny kind)
deer
bears (yep! even a bear in the woods near the house!)
and more!

And the sunrises, oh the sunrises!
Jumping the high and low dives at a local springs--water temp always 71 degrees
This was at a state park--and there was no zoom needed. This guy came right up to the edge of the water!


Every evening the water receded to reveal sand bars that stretched far out into the bay. We saw most of our wild life out on the bars.
And we also collected many (many!) sand dollars.

We are so thankful for our time at Alligator Point!
