Bahia Honda State Park with Bill and Mary

The weather is glorious, in the 70s these past few days, with blue skies and a nice breeze.  We invited RV park neighbors, Bill and Mary to go to Bahia Honda State Park with us as they had never been there.

First, we took them to the Old Bahia Honda bridge for the view from the top.  The path to the bridge is through a tunnel of Sea Grapes and is nice and shady.  Mary led the way.

The view from the top is nice.  This is the gulf side.

Mary spotted a nurse shark swimming close to the bridge on the ocean side.

Then we walked beside the bridge on the ocean side and crossed underneath it.

The breeze was nicer on the gulf side as we walked back to the car.

We drove to the beach on the east end of the park.

Then we walked up the beach to the far end of the island.

I asked Bill and Mary to pose for me next to some driftwood.

Someone had gathered enough shells to make a shell heart on the beach.  It was two-feet wide.

This great tree is at the east end of the beach. It doesn’t look too healthy.

    I love your posts, Dinata. We are in for snow during this next week. I love living in a cold-weather climate, but also being able to vicariously enjoy your warm winter weather too.

      I also enjoy your posts and am looking forward to getting out there for a visit one of these days. Not in the winter though.

    Sun, sea, shells and sharks in the 70s – wonderful. Here it is heavy cloud and about 5C, so definitely woolly hat and scarf weather! 😊
