Canaveral National Seashore

Launched from Lot 7 at the Canaveral National Seashore at 9:20.
 Mosquito Lagoon






 Shipyard Island




 Off the marked trail through Shipyard Island, back in the Lagoon


Cross to Bethune Park
 Standup angler
Looking for manatees

There the are. Below.


I like this house

J.B.'s Fishcamp

 Rents kayaks.  More rental activity than I have ever seen.

Back at the National Seashore.  Funny how it is July 3 as I add the flag.
 Turtle Mound

 Dolphins.  One barely visible, above photo


Landed near Turtle Mound

Atop the Mound










Two channels meet at Eldora,  Making it a good spot for dolphins.  And a 19th century settlement

Landed at 3. Went to the seashore section of Canaveral National Seashore


 Back to the Lagoon side

Went to a new location for lunch
 The Dolphin View.
 I stopped by once before, but did not eat.
 You order at a widow, grab a seat, a server calls out your name and brings the order
Shrimp, scallops, rice, cheesy grits, hush puppy.

Coast Guard
I recalled seeing islands full of birds my prior visit.
 I had been facing the wrong way

 For about the price of a meal alone, you can eat, and take a short cruise on this boat.  May do it one day
